A 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 in which both teams designate a scoring player who scores points by lapping members of the opposite team. The teams attempt to assist their own "scoring teammate" while trying to hinder the opposing teams "Scoring teammate". Thus requiring each team to play both offense and defense simultaneously.
Sounds simple right? But don't forget about the two main elements that make Roller Derby fun; contact and roller skates. Shoving and hitting is encouraged in this sport.
The Roller Derby will feature the Heroes vs the Villains on Saturday, June 8 at the BH BBQ Festival. The Event will begin at 6 pm
