Non Skating Officials
A roller derby scrimmage or bout requires many support members to help keep score, track penalties, run the penalty box, announce and explain what is happening to the crowd, and bandage up scrapes that may happen. NSOs are Non Skating Officials and they assist the referees in keeping the game safe and fair. Many spouses and friends helped out Aloha City Rollers as NSOs. Many prospects who considered playing but couldn’t commit to the practices supported the league as NSOs. All fresh meat should help their leagues as NSOs to better learn the rules and gain a greater understanding of how roller derby is played. Injured players should also support their league as NSOs during their recovery.
This is slideshow of some of the many amazing NSOs that supported Aloha City Rollers!
