What Is Roller Derby?

Roller derby is a contact sport played by two teams of five members roller skating in the same direction around a track. Game play consists of a series of short match ups (jams) in which both teams designate a jammer who scores points by lapping members of the opposing team. The teams attempt to hinder the opposing jammer while assisting their own jammer—in effect, playing both offense and defense simultaneously!

Modern roller derby is an international sport dominated by all-female amateur teams and was (as a roller sport) under consideration for the 2020 Summer Olympics. Learn more about the game by watching the video or contact us and join!
