New(ish) League, need help
« on: May 13, 2013, 06:12:11 am »
Well this is my first post, so "Hi".

I'm a member of Port Macquarie Roller Derby League (PMRDL) we are located on the north coast of New South Wales in Australia.  We've only been going for a little over a year now and we have just hit that spot where we have realised 'D'oh we are going to need NSO's!'. 

I cleverly volunteered myself to investigate and set-up our NSO group and probably be our head NSO but I've been going around in circles trying to find out what they actually do, each post I look at seems to add or remove duties from previous posts or articles or the site is at least two years old.  I just found out that the WFTDA runs clinics for officials, but there are only two being run in Australia, one is full and the other I couldn't get to in time (Australia is a big place). 

So can someone point me in the direction of where to go or how to get started please?

I'd start by downloading the files created by Gravity Kills found on this page.

Thanks for that but I think I need to start really basic, as I looked through that and the first thing that went through my head was "huh?".  Is there a simple list of NSO jobs and what they do anywhere as well as a probably longer list of what a head NSO does?

I'd encourage finding leagues around you and talking to their head NSO's to find a bit of a support group. Zebra Huddle is awesome, but having people close by is even better. Go to scrimmages if you can, volunteer at bouts and watch the way things work. I guess the closest to you guys is probably Northern Rivers Roller Derby in Lismore, Coffs Coast Derby Dolls (in Coffs obviously) and us down in Newcastle, NRDL. Email the leagues and get in touch with their head NSO's.

Hey major puddles, Connie from Perth Roller Derby here. I'd be more than happy to Skype you and we can go through what I do with my team. I took over as HNSO last year and had no clue what to do. I'm now lucky enough to have a very solid, well trained nso team.

I had the honour to go to Melbourne for the WFTDA clinic in April. More than happy to share with you what I learned there.

Flick me an email to conniethenso@gmail.com and we can set something up.

Thanks escales, but the request is from steevels! We're good here at NRDL (or so I believe). Thanks for the offer though!

This is a link to an NSO Training Manual.  I hope it helps.
