Women's Flat Track Roller Derby

Flat track roller derby is a fast-paced full-contact team sport that requires speed, strategy, and athleticism. The flat track version of the sport evolved in 2001, and has quickly grown to encompass more than 1100 leagues worldwide.

A DIY spirit drives the sport and allows roller derby leagues to create their own unique identities and adapt their structures to reflect their local communities.

Established in mid-2010, the Sirens of Smash is based at the Nelson Roller Sports Club which draws passionate skaters from throughout the Nelson Bays (New Zealand) region.

An All-Inclusive Sport

Give it a go!

The league consists of seasoned, developing and just learning "fresh-meat" players as well as referees and non-skating officials.

Roller derby is an inclusive sport - everyone regardless of skating ability is encouraged to give roller derby a go!

How is Roller Derby Played?

what are they doing on that track?!

Essentially a race on skates, the team with the most points at the end of the game, wins!

Each hour-long game is broken into two 30-minute periods during which as many jams are played as can fit. Jams are two-minutes long unless a lead jammer "calls it off" earlier.

Points are earned when a jammer legally passes an opponent each time they complete a lap during a jam. It's easier said than done as there are eight blockers on the track, each trying to prevent the opponent jammer from scoring!

Strategy, timing, fitness, and team work are vital to winning the game.
