- It is played by many teams at the same time;
- teams consist of only 5 players;
- teams face off against each other for 1 jam. A team picks up 3 points for a win, 1 for a drawn jam, but their are also points awarded for gaining lead jammer in that jam.

Ok so this took a lot longer than planned but I finally got round to putting all of the defined terms onto the dictionary page for the first time since I initially started it.
You can find all the defined terms here: http://rollerderbydictionary.tumblr.com/Dictionary
As always, if you spot a definition that could be improved please let me know.
I am also going to start looking for appropriate images, Gifs and videos to illustrate some of the entries. if you see something which would help to demonstrate one of the terms please send it to me.
