40 Roller Derby Names
If you are a female and are great on rollerskates, then maybe roller derby is your calling for a hobby! If you’ve ever witnessed the complete brutality between the two fierce female teams, then you likely have a good idea how tough you need to be for the sport.
What is roller derby?
Roller derby is a sport that takes place in roller skates in a skating rink. Teams, or packs, race around the rink in an effort to score on the other team, which happens when the designated teammates, known as the jammers (marked by big stars on their helmets), make their way through the group of teammates and opponents, known as the blockers, but not easily; they face an obstacle of hips, butts, and shoulders! Ahead of the blockers are the pivots who set the pace for the group of blockers.
It can get brutal, but there are rules to be followed, and penalties to be issued for illegal blocking. Some illegal moves includes using elbows, tripping, back blocking, and passing out of bounds. You can only block the other players by touching them on the side or front from the shoulder to the thigh, but touching anywhere else is illegal in the game of roller derby.
So you’re putting together your pack? Well you will certainly need a good name! What should you look for in a team name? Here’s some tips for coming up with roller derby names:
Ladies: Your team name should say a little something ladylike about the team, but you still mean business!
You mean business: Roller derby names should say you mean business! Did I say, you mean business?
Fierce: Nothing says you mean business like a fierce name. Your name should be one that other teams fear at the sound of it, rather intimidating, and serious with a touch of girl.
- Use sport terms: Some terms that are specific to the sport can make naming a little easier, such as using the names of the positions.
