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)
