For referees:

This is a skating position, you will be expected to attend regular league practices and become a competent skater. Current policies are that you attend 4 practices a month (once a week), the monthly league meeting, and all scrimmages you can.

Practice times:

Sunday 10-noon

Wednesday evening 7:30-9:30

Thursday evening 6:30-8:30

Scrimmages would be a couple times a month during one of these practice times. You will also be required to attend league meetings which happen on
Gear:

quad skates or inline skates of a quality fit for regular athletic practice,

a helmet

knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, and a pea-less whistle (Fox 40 recommended).

A mouth guard is also recommended if you want to get the full benefit from practice.

Primary health insurance is a requirement to practice with the league as well as purchase the leagues secondary insurance which is around $50 per year. We also require a copy of your identification and to have a signed waiver and medical form on file with us.
For non-skating officials:

These positions are the awesome people that assist with the running of a bout: scorekeepers, penalty trackers, and a host of other jobs that people who love sports statistics enjoy. We will have a crew that will be trained to handle the primary positions required that will need to attend the scrimmages mentioned above as well as the league meeting and a secondary crew of stats people for the bouts only. No other equipment is required, just your time and effort.
