Unfortunately yes. We do everything we can to make the sport safe, but it’s still a full contact sport. We take safety and concussion protocols very seriously. We are thankful to our officials and coaches for helping us play safe.
It happens, but it’s rarely intentional. Clotheslines and elbows are actually illegal and can result in skaters being sent to the penalty box.
The jammer scores points by passing opposing players. The person with the star on their helmet is basically the ball. Our About page covers the rules in more depth.
We do not decide the outcome before the game. We are athletes and everyone is working hard to win for their team. The hits you see are real.
FAQs from the Skaters
No, there is no one named Jonathan. There are no chainsaws, and there is no ball. Call it roller ball just one more time…
I got hurt running to math so life is a Hazard for me.
Yes, I do.
-Brüzer von Hammerstein
No, we hit with hips and shoulders now 🙂
People are always asking me about throwing elbows! Like we’re boxers on skates who use our elbows to knock each other over! 🤦♀️ It’s equally funny and frustrating to explain the no no’s of elbows.
-Chi Chi Chong
Like the music video for the Devo song? Yeah I’ve seen it.
Until my body says stop loudly enough for me to actually listen.
-Fleur de Beast
YES and that’s the best part! We have an agreement to hit our friends as hard as we can and vice versa. How else do we get better? Also it’s just way more fun that way…
No. (Facepalm) That is very illegal.
