Proud Supporter of the Methow Valley Roller Girls

Five months ago, we had no idea that roller derby was really possible in Okanogan County. Five months ago there was a group of six women and one man who all decided that getting together to skate around a gym was a good idea. Five months later we are having our very first bout in Okanogan County, the Valley Vixen Showdown. This bout is the product of a very dedicated group of athletes and volunteers that have worked endlessly for a common goal. But this was not possible without the help of other Washington teams. These teams, Apple City Roller Girls and Jet City Roller Girls, have held our hand though the tumultuous process of beginning a league, and to them we are truly grateful. We are also grateful to you, our audience. By coming to our bout, you have chosen to support a new sport driven by the desire to build strong women and men athletes through competition and camaraderie. Thank you. Welcome to the Valley Vixen Showdown. Enjoy.

- Brass Chuckles, Din Mutha' and President, MVRG Basics of derby play; Teams are made up of up to 20 players, with 14 on a play roster for a bout. A maximum of 5 can be on the track at one time - one pivot, one jammer and three blockers. Bouts are played in two 30 minute periods between two teams. Derby is a hands off sport. Skaters may not use their hands to push, grab, nudge or slap members of the opposing teams. Skaters have 30 seconds between each jam to get onto the track and into formation. lf at the end of 30 seconds teams are not in formation, the jam starts without the missing skaters. The pivot and blockers must stay within 20 feet of the pack at all times. They may not block a jammer if they are ahead of or behind the pack. Tie bouts are not allowed. lf the score is tied at the end of the second period, the game will continue with two minute jams until the tie is broken. The referees have the final say in all decisions. Touching, pushing or harassing referees in any way may be grounds for leaving the game. Terms: Pack - A pack consists of two teams skating in formation. Formation - Starting formation has pivots in front, blockers in the middle and jammers in the back. Jam - The two minute period during which points are scored. There are usually 15-16 jams per period. Scoring - The jammer starts scoring points after her initial pass thru the pack gaining one point for every opposing blocker and pivot she legally passes. Jammer - The sprinters of the team. Their job is to break thru the pack and score points. Jammers have stars on their helmet covers. Lead Jammer - The first jammer from either team to legally break thru the pack. She has the power to call off the jam at any time. Pivot - Pivots wear striped helmet covers and typically skate at the front of the pack. They set the pace of the pack and sometimes take over jamming when the jammer’s star helmet cover gets passed to them. Blocker - Each team gets three blockers on the track and their job is to block the opposing team’s jammer and clear the way for their own jammer.
