Jammers and Blockers will be colliding on the floor in Roller Derby combat Saturday at the Bicentennial Center Saturday night.
“Each team puts five skaters out there – four Blockers and one Jammer,” said Salina Siren Noel Schriber.
She and teammate Amanda Virgason joined in on the KSAL Morning News Friday with a look inside the game.
“Think of your Jammer as the scorer. For every opposing Blocker that they pass they receive one point.”
Schriber says she enjoys the speed and contact in a sport where you play offense and defense at the same time, “I love coming around and hitting that other Jammer out of there,” Schriber said.
“I don’t want her scoring points!”
The Sirens are undefeated (2-0) in 2016 and hosting AAA Omaha Saturday night at the Bicentennial Center at 7pm.
Doors open at 6pm.
Tickets are $8-$12 in advance and $10-$15 at the door.
