Gotham Girls’ Wall Street Traitors triumph in roller derby tournament; Long Island Roller Rebels advance to semi-finals

Roller derby skaters, or “Derby Girls,” from all over the state descended on Skate Safe America in Old Bethpage on Saturday, Sept. 3 for the Second Annual Empire Skate Showdown. While there was plenty of the traditional glitter and fun associated with the sport, the all-day contest to determine the best female roller derby team in New York State for 2011 brought out the kind of physical, aggressive play that football and hockey fans could appreciate.

For those unfamiliar with the sport, the action of roller derby takes place during two-minute intervals called jams. There are three positions: The scorer, called a jammer, scores points for her team by lapping members of the opposing team during a jam. Skaters of the second position, called blockers, try to block the other team’s jammer from passing them. The third position is the pivot, who sets the pace for the blockers and acts as their leader.
