About Roller Derby
Roller Derby is a contact sport played within the boundaries of an oval-shaped flat-track. Points can be scored by one person on each team, known as the Jammer (signified by the star worn on their helmet). The object of the game is for a team to get their Jammer past the opposing team, while simultaneously blocking the opposing team’s Jammer. For each person on the opposing side a Jammer passes, they score points. Once the Jammer get through, they must lap around the oval track and pass the opposing team again.
