Get To Know The 513's Officials

In recent years, Cincinnati (area code 513) has begun celebrating itself on May 13, aka 513 Day. We at the Cincinnati Rollergirls would like to take this day to recognize and thank our volunteer officials, who collectively call themselves the Officials Union Local 513. They're the ones who make sure we're skating safely; track points, penalties and a host of other important stats; and generally keep skaters in line and games running smoothly. We couldn't put on our events without them! Read on to learn more about why they do what they do and how you can get involved.
