Next Open House Days are on the 2.7. and the 22.8.2019

We invite all women* and those who do not identify with the gender binary to join the team’s newbie class as skaters. We also invite people of all genders who are interested in skating to join VRD as a referee, and they may attend the newbie class to learn the necessary skating skills. Finally, anyone who would like to become a part of the roller derby community but does not want to skate is invited to join VRD as a non-skating official (NSO) or help as a volunteer at bouts (games).

Sign up here



You want to skate? Perfect! We have a Newbie class starting once a year. Stay tuned to find out more about our next Open House Day or message us at recruiting@viennarollerderby.


Referees and Non-Skating-Officials

We invite people of all genders to join Vienna Roller Derby as a Zebra (Skating Referee) or NSO (Non-Skating-Official).

Zebra. You count the points and give penalties. Without you we can’t play! You make sure the game is fair and safe.  Being a roller derby referee is challenging, yet exciting, fast-paced and fulfilling. As a referee you can connect with other roller derby communities around the world, ref’ing games in cities a couple hours away or across the ocean! No previous experience is necessary– you can learn to skate and the Way of the Zebra here with us at VRD. Ready to rock some zebra stripes? Message us at

NSO. If you want in on the roller derby action, but don’t want to roll on 8 wheels, then perhaps a job as a non-skating official is right for you! NSOs work closely with referees during the game to track and record important game data, such as penalties and score. Without NSOs the game would not be possible! Interested? Email us at
