WHAT IS ROLLER DERBY?
The Cape Town Rollergirls Roller Derby League offers Flat Track Roller Derby, a full-contact sport, played between two teams of women on quad roller-skates in an anti-clockwise race on a flat oval track, as well as recreational roller skating in Cape Town. We adhere to the latest rules set by the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association.
Each team comprises maximum 15 players, with up to five at a time on the track for each ‘jam’ that lasts up to two minutes. The ‘jammers’, who are the scoring players, identified with a star on their helmets, work their way through the ‘pack’ made up of ‘blockers’ and a ‘pivot’ player (stripe on helmet) from each team. The ‘blockers’ objective is to assist their own Jammer through the pack and to prevent the opposing Jammer from scoring points.
CAPE TOWN COURT MARSHALS
If you love to skate, love the sport, but the contact is just not for you – join our referee squad. The Cape Town Court Marshals run all of our roller derby games and practice twice a week. Their job on track is to call for penalties when skaters perform illegal moves and to ensure the game follows the standards set by Women’s Flat Track Derby Association.
