Why Volunteer?

With over 850 active volunteers, RCR is a 501(c)3 non-profit that is almost entirely volunteer-run. In 2014, volunteers contributed over 23,000 hours of their time, and we would not be where we are without everyone’s continued support. Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers, for your support of the league!

Meetings and Opportunities of Interest


Join us for our first ever Events Volunteer Open House Feb. 28th from 6-7:30pm at the Oaks Park Hangar!

If you love the idea of being part of what makes our events amazing, if you want to meet new people, or if you want to hang out with that friend or loved one that joined the league as a skater and they’re always skating now, this is the event for you! Meet current volunteers staffing events, find out about all the moving pieces, and let us know what you think you might like to do.

Areas of events represented will be:

  • Front Desk Lead – make sure everyone gets tickets and gets in the door. Great role for friendly people who like doing customer service.
  • Raffle – learn about selling tickets and dressing up all fancy. Raffle is a big part of our annual fundraising and is great for outgoing people who love glitter.
  • Purple Reign – talk to strangers about roller derby and wear a super cute purple shirt. Don’t know a lot about derby? It’s okay! We train!
  • Assistant Events Coordinators – great resume booster if you think you’d like to work in events. Learn ALL the in’s and outs. Great candidates will have awesome critical thinking skills and can remain calm under chaos.
  • Sound Technicians – play will all of our equipment and keep it doing what it needs to do at events.
  • Merch Sales – be the face behind the merch table. Help sell the swag that promotes the league. Options for league and team merch available.
  • Medics – if you have a medical background, we would love to talk to you about being a medic! The medic supports an OHSU doctor at all public events to keep skaters and fans safe.
  • Yellow Shirts – don’t have a lot of time, but want to help out? This is a great option. Come once a year, come every bout, we love you all the same. Tasks include checking wrist bands, getting butts in seats, and helping answer fans’ questions.

RSVP here to attend this super fun and informative event.
