Jammer: The only player who can score points. They wear a star on their helmet. Lead jammer is the first jammer to break through the opposing team's pack. Points are scored after the first pass.

Blocker: Works with other blockers to prevent the opposing team's jammer from scoring points while helping their own jammer get through the pack. They do not wear a helmet cover.

Pivot: Primarily a blocker, but may become a jammer if their jammer passes them the star helmet cover. They wear a stripe on their helmet.

Roller Derby Basics

  • Each bout lasts for about an hour and is divided into two, 30-minute halves

  • Each half consists of multiple "jams" which last a maximum of two minutes

  • Each team features five players: four blockers and one jammer

  • The objective of each jam is to score as many points as possible

  • Points are scored each time a jammer passes a member of the opposite team starting on their second lap around the track

  • The first jammer to legally clear the pack on the initial pass becomes the lead jammer and has the ability to call off the jam at any point
