Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What is the name of the position that wears a star on their helmet?

      Pivot

      Jammer

    • C.

      Blocker

    • D.

      Team Captain

    Correct Answer
    B. Jammer
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Jammer. In roller derby, the Jammer is the position that wears a star on their helmet. The Jammer's role is to score points by lapping members of the opposing team. They are often the fastest and most agile skaters on the team, as they need to navigate through the pack of blockers and break through their defense to score points. Wearing a star on their helmet makes them easily identifiable to both their teammates and the opposing team.

    D. Four
    Explanation
    A team may have a maximum of four blockers on the track.

Having more blockers on the track allows for better defensive strategies and increases the team's chances of preventing the opposing jammer from scoring points.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation

Players should rely on their skills and techniques to defend against opponents, rather than using physical force to keep them away.

    Correct Answer
    C. Repeatedly place both hands on hips until the referee whistles the end of the Jam
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the Lead Jammer "calls off" the Jam by repeatedly placing both hands on their hips until the referee whistles the end of the Jam. This action signals to the referee that the Lead Jammer wants to end the Jam before the full two minutes have elapsed. By doing this, the Lead Jammer can strategically control the length of the Jam and prevent the opposing team from scoring additional points.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Blocking means knocking someone down.

    • A.

      True
