Roller Derby is a team sport for women on roller skates and is founded in Austin, Texas. Roller Derby is all about speed, perseverance and tactics. It is a contact sport played by two teams of 5 players each who all skate in the same direction on a flat surface. A game consists several small matches (“jams”) during which a player of each team (“jammer”) tries to score by passing players of the other team. Both teams try their best to help their jammer and at the same time hamper the opponent – this way each team plays both offense and defense at the same time.
