We've also secured video services from Poppa Getsome, so all scrimmage footage will be posted online for your review after the clinic.
Reed d'Rulz: Reed is the product of the amazing Junior roller derby scene in the Pacific Northwest. When his daughter started skating in 2009, he began to learn the ways of the NSO. With that as a springboard, Reed joined Rat City's Lightning Fists of Science in 2010, became certified in 2011, and Head NSO for the league in 2012. Today Reed is a Level 3 WFTDA certified NSO and holds endorsements for Head NSOing and Scoring & Timing. Reed has been involved in the training and mentoring of officials at many levels from new parents just starting out in Junior derby to leaguemates at Rat City on up to experienced NSOs at Tournament levels. This year will mark the 4th year that Reed has officiated for the WFTDA Playoff and Championship Tournaments.
