Our team travels nationally, competing as part of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) who currently has 457 member leagues on 6 different continents. Roller derby is the fastest growing sport in the world, with over 600 leagues in the United States and 1,400 more around the world.
No Coast typically hosts recruitment only ONCE per year, in January, however COVID-19 has switched up the way we do things. This year, we are inviting new and returning skaters to the Ice Box on Tuesday July 20th at 7pm.During this one hour session, we will dust off our skates, check out skates to new recruits, skate around, and talk about the season forecast. This session will run from Jul 20th - Aug 31st on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
If you missed the July-August 2021 session and are interested in skating or becoming an official with No Coast, email us at NoCoastRollerDerby@gmail.com for more information.
HOW DO I VOLUNTEER?
Do you love roller derby and you want to help out, but don’t think the hard-hitting action on the track is for you? Volunteering as a skating ref or an NSO (non-skating official) is just for you!
Referees are our skating officials, experts on the WFTDA Rules and empowered to call penalties to help keep the game moving.
NSOs are Non-skating Officials and you can find them on the track without skates (hence the name). This group of officials have an advanced knowledge of the WFTDA Rules and often enjoy an extraordinary attention to detail. They keep order during the games by keeping score, tracking stats, timing penalties, and keeping the game clock correct.
Our officials often travel with the teams when they skate against other leagues – including WFTDA Playoffs and Championships – regularly work tournaments around the United States and frequently work with officials from other leagues to maintain the highest quality of game play wherever they go.
Officials are an integral part of the league – we can’t have a game without them! (Really! It says so in the rules.) What better way to get into the games for free and NOT end up as bruised and sore as the players (usually)? Have questions on how to get started? Contact our Officials Coordinator at NoCoastOfficials@gmail.com for more information.
