Referees and NSOs

ARRG would not be possible without our dedicated referees and non-skating officials, responsible for keeping our bouts clean, safe and honest and for tracking all stats and scores.

NSOs (Non-Skating Officials) specialise in score tracking, time-keeping and penalty tracking for each bout.

Referees follow the action on their skates, keeping track of the scores and watching for errant elbows and out-of-bounds fouls. ARRG has our own referee training program, which ensures all of  our referees reach a high standard of reffing.

We are currently recruiting skating and Non Skating Officials (NSOs)! You can become a member of the fantastic ARRG league without even needing to skate! A team of special ARRG NSOs and refs will train you in everything you need to know and even help you work towards WFTDA Certification! This is also a fantastic opportunity to get involved in the running of ARRG and be a part of something amazing! Email us at for details.
