Team Zebra is a valuable asset to any derby league. These men and women commit many exciting hours learning the intricate rules to this sport and skating skills. Even though they don’t partake in any contact they are still required to train and learn with our bouting skaters. All referees join our Freshmeat program to learn the basics. After they have completed level one they advance to referee training with our Head Ref.
