What Is Roller Derby
Roller derby is a predominantly female full contact sport played on quad roller skates. Teams of 5 players skate on an oval track, where the designated ‘Jammer’ scores points by passing the ‘blockers’ of the opposing team. A game is made up of 2 30 minute halves, that are further subdivided into jams, each jam is a maximum of 2 minutes in length with the lead jammer, that’s the 1st of the jammers to pass through the pack of blockers cleanly, having the option to call of the jam to prevent the other jammer from scoring points.
Preparations for the World Cup 2014
We are currently preparing for Dallas 2014, where the Original 13 teams will be joined by teams from all over the world making it a massive 29 team tournament this time round.
