About Roller Derby
Roller derby has experienced a revival in the past few years, with almost 1500 teams around the world. It is a full-contact sport played in traditional quad roller skates on a flat surface, such as a the floor of a roller rink. Roller derby games are called bouts, which are divided into two 30-minute periods. Each period consists of a number of jams, which can last up to two minutes.
In a jam, each team puts five players on the track: four blockers and a jammer. The jammers are the point-scorers, and attempt to earn points by lapping the pack and successfully passing the opposing team’s blockers. The blockers’ main objective is to impede the progress of the opposite team’s jammer through the pack. Blockers can use shoulder and hip checks, as well as booty blocks, but penalties are given to skaters who block illegally, behave in an unsportsmanlike manner, or otherwise break the rules.
Roller derby is a full contact sport; while bouts may be tough and action-packed, they are family-friendly and enjoyable for fans of all ages. For more information, visit wftda.com.
