What Is Roller Derby?
Roller Derby is a contact sport played on quad or roller skates on an oval shaped track. Each team of five is made up of one jammer and four blockers. The jammers score points by passing opposing skaters and the blockers try to hinder them while helping their own jammer.
Roller Derby is pretty rough isn’t it?
Roller Derby is a contact sport, and as with any contact sport there is a bit of push and shove. All players must wear protective gear – helmets, padding and mouth guards – and there are strict rules to minimise injury and aggressive game play. Roller Derby has fewer injuries than other contact sports like football. It’s come a long way since the 70’s!
