ABOUT ROLLER DERBY

Roller Derby is a fast paced, full contact sport played on quad skates on an elliptical track. It is played between 2 teams of up to 15 skaters.

Bouts (games) are played in two 30min halves that are split up into 2 minute jams. Each team can have 5 skaters on the track at any one time. That's one JAMMER and 4 BLOCKERS, one of these BLOCKERS is a designated PIVOT. 

THE JAMMER:

Scores points by lapping members of the opposing team, they wear a STAR on their helmets. 

 

THE BLOCKERS:

Attempts to hinder the other team's JAMMER whilst simultaneously assisting their JAMMER through the pack.

 

THE PIVOT:

A BLOCKER whom has the ability to become a JAMMER if they execute a legal star pass. The skater will wear a STRIPE on their helmet.
