What is Roller Derby?

“To outsiders, derby might look like a bunch of skaters whizzing around on a track, but the game is deceptively complex and treacherous. A jammer from each team is tasked with breaking through and then lapping a labyrinthine pack of blockers, scoring a point for every opponent she passes during a series of two-minute sessions called jams. Pack members do everything they can within the rules—including body blocking and hip checking—to discourage the other team’s jammer from scoring while helping their own get through.”
