Non Skating Officials

Non Skating Officials

These guys are the life-blood of roller derby. Non Skating Officials, or NSOs, sort out all of the roller derby admin that happens before, during and after a game. Without them jam timing, score counting, penalty tracking and, our world (and wheels) couldn’t turn.

(A bit lost with all the roller derby speak? Don’t despair, check out our Roller Derby Dictionary to find out why we keep talking about jam…)

Everyone in Sheffield Steel Rollergirls is required to do some NSO activities as part of their membership, as it’s a great way to learn the rules and finer points of the game, and be involved in a game even when you aren’t playing. Plus you get free entry to games! There’s something for everyone regardless of your experience levels, so don’t be shy.

We welcome people of all gender identities to be an NSO. If you are under the age of 18 you will need parental consent to assist at games.
