  1. Hmmm. Austin was basically home to the revival of roller derby, both flat track and banked. Flat track in particular is now huge with hundreds of leagues in cities around the world.


    Texas! Texas! Kill! Kill! Kill! 😉

    The Texas Rollergirls played for years in the skating rink where my daughter and I skate most every month. For several years we went to their games and were even season ticket “Smack Pack” holders. There’s also a recreational league and a kids league (Derby Brats).

    Derby is divided into “jams”. On a jam, each team has a “pivot” directing the pack, three other blockers, and a jammer (wearing a helmet cover with stars on it). The jammers start behind the pack. The first jammer that gets through the pack without commiting any infractions becomes the “lead jammer”. The lead jammer can call off the jam at any time (strategy). Jams are also timed to a maximum two minutes. (It’s possible to have a jam with no lead jammer.) After they make it through the pack, the jammers lap them and from then on each person they pass on the opposing team counts as one point for a maximum of five points per lap. (Opposing players out on penalty are counted.)

    So lots of strategy involved once you understand the game. And always fun to watch.
