Do you know the Rules of Roller Derby?

Seems there’s a lot of people who love roller derby, but have no idea what the rules are.  We are here to help.  Check out the rules here, http://www.derbynewsnetwork.com/roller_derby_rules. Junior rules are essentially the same, except there are three levels and the younger skaters only use positional blocking, so no all out hitting.
