Treasure Valley RollerGirls Vs Wasatch Midnight Terror Source: Wikipedia

It is an American-invented contact sport with roots in sports entertainment. The game is based on formation roller skating around an oval track by two teams. Points are scored when the designated scoring player (the "jammer") of a given team laps members of the opposing team"
