What is roller derby?

Roller derby is a high speed, full contact sport played on quad roller skates and dominated by minority genders. The action takes place between two teams on an oval-shaped track.

Each team consists of five players – four defensive players known as blockers and one points scorer, known as a jammer. Jammers score points by lapping the opposing blockers. The team with the most points at the end of the two 30 minute periods wins!

Good roller derby requires athleticism, agility and teamwork. Skillful and action-packed, roller derby is an exciting sport for participants and spectators alike.
