We are always on the lookout for new players, referees, non-skating officials and numerous other types of helpers. You can participate if you are over 18 years old. Register at: recruiting@bearcityrollerderby.com.

Non-skating Officials (NSO)

Being an NSO is the quickest way to actively take part in a Roller Derby game.

NSOs are the referees’ right hand. They write down the points, penalties take the time, supervise the penalty box and much more. After only 3 to 5 briefings you are ready to participate as an NSO.

New referees

Either male or female – everybody can become a ref!

A Roller Derby game is accompanied by up to 7 skating referees. Two jammer referees are essentially in charge of the most important player on track – the jammers. The 3 to 5 pack referees have to keep an eye on the 8 blockers.

If you’ve never stood on skates before, you’re more than welcome to participate in the beginners training. Our referees and NSO-Team will introduce themselves!

New players

The next newbie course starts in July. If you want to join, you can write a mail to recruiting@bearcityrollerderby.com and we’ll get in touch with you as soon as the next course is about to begin.

If you want to participate please make sure to have approximately 4 hours time available on Saturdays. We’ll teach you everything – skating, sprinting, stopping, jumping, blocking, avoiding a hit, passing someone and much more. To participate you will need skates, pads, a helmet and a mouth guard. You can buy the equipment at Quad Roller Skate Shop at Karl-Marx-Platz 6 in Berlin or rent it from us.

Junior Derby

Are you a young Roller Derby enthusiasts? We provide a junior derby training for boys and girls between 7 and 17 every sunday between 12am to 3pm. You can write a mail to register to juniors@bearcityrollerderby.com.
