“We welcome women aged 18 or over with all levels of ability but we are also looking for both men and women to get involved with the league as referees, Non-Skating Officials (NSOs) and other volunteer roles.” Emma goes on to explain, “We teach most of Sparks and new referees to skate before moving on to full contact and game strategy anyway so previous skating experience is nice but not necessary!”
Head of Recruitment, Emma French a.k.a May K. Fist said, “I have been blown away by the enthusiasm and the sheer determination of everyone to try all of the skills we were teaching on Thursday.
