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.

New players

The next newbie course starts in February 2018. If you want to join, you can register with this form 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.
