Roller derby leagues rely on officials to make sure bouts are played safely and fairly. The referees, affectionately known as ‘Zebras’ keep a close eye on us, stepping in when we don’t play safely or by the rules!
If you are a stickler for detail and can blow a whistle, we’d love to hear from you. The rest we teach you in ref school.
A fully officiated bout has 7 (yes seven) refs and one spare called the alternate, who is there to assist and jump in if needed.
We are proud to say that Dorset Roller Girls have a hard working, dedicated team of refs who willingly leap in to support other local leagues and take part in bouts across the Country.
