Who are they and what are they doing?
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
