Volunteer referees and non-skating officials are essential to any league. Men and women can be refs or NSOs.
Typically bouts have 7 refs on skate and another handful of NSO timing the penalty box, timing jams, tracking infractions, keeping score, and more.
NSO training ramps up before bouts, so regular time commitment to the league is lower than for referees. Refs need on-skate practice for their own speed and agility, and off-skate time to learn the rule set, and more on-skate time to train their eyes to see it all.
