Become part of something amazing!  There's nothing like watching tentative and wobbly new skaters blossom into a confident, focused and tenacious competitors spurred on by the roar of the crowd.  Our girls learn sportmanship, skating skill and strategy, all while having fun and making friends.  But none of it is possible without the drive, passion and talent of our volunteers.  Even if you can only help out occasionally, we always need additional hands at our many bouts.
 
Here are some of our most pressing needs:
  • Referees: If you can skate we'll teach you to ref.  This role requires regular participation in weekly practice bouts.  Referees are the backbone of our league and we never have enough.  So seriously, if you can skate we need your help.
  • Bout lead: Our outstanding bout lead is leaving at the end of this season and we need motivated candidates for this important role.  The bout lead is the director of our biggest events.  If you or someone you know would be a good fit for this role we'd love to hear from you!

We are an entirely volunteer-run organization that relies on community support to reach our fundraising goals. Our current fundraising activities include public bouts, 50/50 raffles, a skate-a-thon, for which skaters request individual per lap or flat support, and bake sales for our travel team, the Galaxy Girls. The Seattle Derby Brats is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization that empowers girls to be strong, healthy and confident. We do this through a supportive, inclusive community teaching junior roller derby
