Women’s flat track roller derby is one of the fastest-growing sports in North America! It’s a lightning-paced, hard-hitting, full-contact sport that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Flat track roller derby is skated on any flat, smooth surface, with all players on both sides skating in counter clockwise direction. It’s a sport that requires speed, skill, agility, and guts.
Each team has four blockers and one jammer on the track at a time. The jammer for each team tries to get through the opposing blockers to score points. Players are both offense and defense at the same time – trying to help their jammer while stopping the opponents.
The Winnipeg Roller Derby League is member of the WTFDA (Women’s Flat Track Derby Association), which is the governing body of women’s flat track roller derby.
