Become a WA Roller Derby NSO
Are you a new skater looking for a great way to learn the rules whilst working your way through level one? Awesome! Or perhaps you’re not interested in, or unable to take up skating? Become a Non-Skating Official (or NSO for short)!
As a Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby Association (WFTDA) league, WA Roller Derby (WARD) Non-Skating Officials officiate games to the highest possible standards. If you’re over 18, and think you have the potential for:
- High speed analytical and observational skills
- Impartiality and even-handedness
…then becoming a WARD NSO is perfect for you!
Non Skating Officials
In every roller derby game there are 9 NSOs working 6 different roles. We provide regular training to allow you to get familiar and confident in each role, and give you opportunities to try your new found knowledge at low-key practice games (scrimmages). When you feel you are ready, we’ll roster you on as a Non-Skating Official in one of our many public games.
NSO roles include:
- Jam Timer
- Penalty Box Timers (x2 for each game)
- Penalty Box Manager
- Scorekeepers (x2)
- Scoreboard Operator
- Penalty and Line-up Trackers (x2)
