Roller Derby is governed by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA). Visit the WFTDA website to view the complete rules governing our sport.

Here is a basic synopsis of the sport:

There are two 30 minute “bouts” per game. Bouts are divided into two minute jam sessions. Two teams of five ladies compete in each jam session. Each team consists of one skater in scoring position called a jammer (star on her helmet), three blockers and one pivot (stripe on her helmet). The blockers form a skating pack.

A single whistle starts a jam session. Each team’s jammer attempts to skate through the pack. The first jammer through the pack is identified as the “lead jammer”. Both jammers continue to sprint around the track in an effort to lap the pack. When they reach the pack, the jammers must battle through again. On their second and subsequent trips through, the jammers earn a point for every opponent they pass. The blockers and pivot try to stop the opposing team’s jammer from passing and assist their own jammer through the pack. The jam goes on for 2 minutes or until the lead jammer calls off the jam.
