What is a Derby roller?
The choice of a roller skate will depend on its practice, the utility that we will have. Among roller skating practices, there are four main categories: walking , skatepark, dance and derby, knowing that we can combine certain practices and do both dance and skatepark, dance and of the ride.
Roller Derby is a discipline in its own right that sees two teams compete on an oval track (the track). Each team consists of a jammer (with a star on the helmet) and 4 blockers. To score points, the jammer must pass the opposing team's blockers without being thrown to the ground or leaving the track.
The role of the blocker is to prevent the opposing jammer from doubling them and thus allow the passage through the pack of his own jammer. To do roller derby, you would need to get a skate with indoor wheels
Today, roller derby has become an international sport with many leagues around the world, this sport which is also a game is rather feminine even if masculine leagues exist in France.
Note when a national championship was held for the first time in France during the 2015-2016 season. In France many clubs have opened their doors across the country and these are mostly female clubs. A match consists of two 30-minute halves. A half-time is divided into sub-periods, called jams, with a maximum duration of 2 minutes. Between two sub-periods, there is a 30-second period during which the teams can change players. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins this match.
