Established in 2006, Charlotte Roller Derby is a skater-owned and operated non-profit sports organization comprised of women and men from all walks of life.

Roller Derby 101
- Roller derby is a contact sport, with five skaters from each team on the track at a time.
- A bout consists of a series of “jams,” where one skater on each team, the “jammer” (identified with a star on the helmet) scores points by lapping members of the opposing team.
- The other team members, the “blockers,” try to prevent the opposing team’s jammer from passing them, while helping their own jammer.
