What is Roller Derby?
Roller derby is a contact sport, played on rollerskates.
There are two teams with a maximum of 14 skaters on each team, 5 skaters per team may be on the track at any one time. 4 skaters on each team are Blockers, they play defence and offense for the 5th skater, the sprint skater and point scorer, this skater is called the Jammer.
The skaters may only ‘positionally’ block one another meaning they can position themselves in such a way that stops opposition skaters from moving as they wish, junior roller derby skaters may not physically impact upon one another.
The jammer must pass the hips of all of the opposing Blockers and then lap the pack and every opposing player she passes after this she will score 1 point. Both jammers can be scoring at the same time.
The first jammer to pass every blocker opponent’s hips without incurring a penalty will be awarded ‘lead jammer’.
Lead jammer status gives the power to that jammer to ‘call off’ or stop the jam at any time by touching her hips twice. Unless a jam is called off it will last for 2 minutes.
After the 2 minutes has elapsed or the lead jammer has called off the jam, another jam will start 30 seconds later with a new team of 5 players.
