Referee Training Program
Referees (or Zebras) keep skaters safe during game play and also help at practices officiating drills and scrimmages. Zebras skate for FREE once they graduate from the Adult Roller Derby 101 Program in return for reffing services at practices and games.
Opportunities exist for referees to shadow experienced refs and attend training sessions to hone their skills. WFTDA Skating Skills Assessment for Referee Certification provides the guideline for minimum skating skill required in order to begin reffing. Becoming an experienced ref will open opportunities to travel around Western Canada reffing in a wide-variety of games. Chat with your New Skater Program Coach if you think reffing would be a good option for you!
You must attend one of the Adult League Registration Nights and graduate from the Adult Roller Derby 101 Program prior to learning to ref.
