Fresh Meat Try-out
Rotterdam Roller Derby is organising a roller derby Open Training for new skaters, referees and non-skating officials.
Come rock the track with us, make some new friends and we will teach you all you ever wanted to know about roller derby. Afterwards, we’ll close the training by having a drink.
Roller derby is a contact sport played by two teams of five members roller skating in the same direction around a track. Game play consists of a series of short match ups (“jams”) in which both teams designate a scoring player (the “jammer”) who scores points by lapping members of the opposing team. The teams attempt to assist their own jammer while hindering the opposing jammer—in effect, playing both offence and defence simultaneously. Want to know more? Check our this video!
