Calling all skaters interested in roller derby in Tacoma! The Dockyard Derby Dames are looking for WFTDA eligible skaters of all ages, sizes and skill levels to join our league.

All new skaters with minimum skills are accepted into our “New Bruiser” group until they are draft eligible.

If you're a whistle-blower who looks amazing in stripes and loves being in charge, becoming a referee might just be your thing. We are always recruiting referees and non-skating officials (NSOs) to the “Dockside”. No experience is required. All you need are skates and safety gear to begin. If you want to get involved without the gear, become an NSO and help us keep score, track penalties and keep stats.
How to Become a Ref or NSO
For a ref, step 1 is to purchase equipment. Email email@example.com for info on the kind of gear needed and to inquire about possible loaners while you gather yours. Next step for both NSOs and refs is to come to as many Wednesday Scrimmages as you can to learn the ropes! Read up on the rule book and future refs can join in on our next Ref School. And that's about it!
We need all the help we can get with all the injuries we acquire from playing a full-contact sport on roller skates. If you are an EMT and would like to attend our bouts for free, become a DYDD Medic. If you are interested, please fill out our interest form.
