Jammer – distinguished by the star on her helmet. She is the point-scorer and earns one point for her team every time she laps a member of the opposition.
Blocker – three skaters with unmarked helmets. Blockers play both offense and defense as needed. Their job is both to assist and protect their jammer, and to impede the opposing jammer.
Pivot – a specialized class of blocker, wearing a stripe on her helmet. Acting as a temporary captain, she leads the pack on the track and can also receive a ‘star pass’ where she becomes the jammer – check out our website for more detail on this rare beast.
The Pack – Formed by blockers, this is the largest group of skaters within ten feet of each other on the track at a given time.
