Not familiar with roller derby? It’s a full-contact sport consisting of two teams of fifteen players, in which both teams designate a “jammer” and four “blockers” to try and lap the opposing team. Essentially, both teams are in an intense race while simultaneously playing defense and offense—it’s an intense sport to play AND watch!
