MRDA to host a Roller Derby Officiating Workshop.


MRDA hosts a Roller Derby Officiating Workshop

The Men’s Roller Derby Association (MRDA) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a one day roller derby officiating workshop on Friday, August 15, 2014 in Rome, NY.  This workshop occurs just prior to the Mohawk Valley Cup tournament and is a separate event with its own registration.  

All officials, skaters and enthusiasts are welcome to attend.  Leading the workshop are experienced officials and instructors including Sugar Daddy, Miss Trial and Lethe L. Ejection.  Our over-arching goal is to help raise the level of officiating quality and consistency from within the community.

Due to the limited timeframe, our prepared materials focus on broad topics, such as the tenets of officiating, understanding the spectrum of impact, identifying action initiators, and how to overcome some of the barriers to effective and efficient communication.  Based on workshop participants’ interest, we will drill down into the details of rules and officiating best practices.

Advance registration fee for the one day workshop is $30.  The link for advance registration is . Seating is limited to 50 attendees and same day registration, if available, is $50 per person.
