How We Play
Renegades play Flat Track Roller Derby. We are a NO RULES, No Holds Barred league, however we Oregon Renegades do have one rule: Don’t be a Dirtbag. If a skater is out there for individual glory, disregards the safety of others, or legitimacy of the game, we call that being a Dirtbag and we don’t play with Dirtbags.
How the game is played:
Roller Derby is a sport played on quad skates, on either a flat track or banked track surface. It consists of four 15 minute periods, which is broke down into 1 minute jams. Each jam is played with 4 players
from each of two teams.
JAMS: A single whistle starts the Pack and the Jammers. A jam may last 60 seconds or until the Lead
Jammer calls the jam by placing their hands on their hips.
PACK: The largest group of blockers, containing members from both teams.
Each team consists of these players:
3 Blockers: They set up plays to assist their jammer through the pack and blocks to stop the
1 Jammer: Designated with a mohawk on their helmet and known as the sprint skater. Their object is
to score one point per opponent they lap.
A Jammer may earn Lead Jammer status by being the first Jammer to break the pack. Lead Jammer
status may be taken by the opposing Jammer if they take the lead. Lead Jammer is always the Jammer
in front. The Lead Jammer can stop the Jam whenever they want to. Hopefully preventing the other team from scoring more points during the jam.
Don’t Be a Dirtbag: We do not call penalties in our game, but we do have Dirtbag Regulators and Brawl Breakers to insure that the game is aggressive and safe.
