Black and White

The Black Team and White Team at the Brick House Betties open scrimmage that was held on 29 January. The composition of the teams is one of the interesting aspects of open scrimmages, as you end up competing with players from your home organization, and working with players that you would normally be trying to thwart!

Thank you officials!

The Brick House Betties would like to acknowledge and thank the amazing refs and NSOs (Non Skating Officials) that volunteer their time and skills to keep the game on track. Without them we could not hold scrimmages, or bouts, and that would make us sad.

The refs are tough, but fair, and rumour has it they sometimes smile when they send a player to the penalty box. Besides looking great in their ref togs, the refs are outstanding skaters, and have an amazing knowledge of roller derby rules – and there’s lots of rules to the game!

The refs are not just Brick House Betties – nope, they come from other teams, travel at their own expense, and we really appreciate them.

The NSOs keep track of the score, track penalties, time the jams, and make sure that skaters do the time for the crime. They’re a smiling bunch, but don’t try to pull a fast one on them or you’ll be standing in front of the Head NSO explaining yourself!

A good memory from this year of derby for the Brick House Betties… Summer Slam III – a fun weekend tournament, played with some pick-up skaters from a few of our favourite teams as honourary Betties as we take on the Faster Pussycats.


Wishing all the peeps in our derby-verse — near & far; fans, skaters, & officials; funky, or groovy — a Merry Christmas & a very Happy New Year!
