Roller Derby has it all. Skating. Speed. Teams. Offensive and defensive play. Contact. Most importantly, excitement! Roller derby is an international sport, mostly dominated by all-female teams. Five members of each team compete in two minute ‘jam sessions’. Points are scored by one player on each team designated as the ‘jammer’. For every pass around the ‘pack’ a point is scored. The remaining team members play using both offensive and defensive moods. If you like action packed sports, give it a whirl.
