You will need:

                            - Skates: Quad or Inline are OK                                                   - Good shoes (we'd hate to run over your toes!)
                            - Pads: Helmet, Wrist, Elbow, and Knee                                                    - Good attention span

                            - USARS: Membership and Insurance                                             - Optional but helpful: killer organizational skills

Regardless of position, you also need a thick skin and a willingness to learn.

We are a volunteer organization, so we don't get paid for officiating; like most roller derby officials, we do this for the love of the sport, and because it's fun! Unlike most derby organizations, we also do not pay dues to participate.

Check out our Calendar for current DSotB practices, come out to one and fill out a single info sheet, and start training with us. Oh, and welcome to your brand-new derby addiction :-)
