Alternative names: --
Objective: To practice jamming; to practice helping your jammer through the pack; to practice blocking the opposing jammer
Typical length of drill: Depends entirely on the number of skaters you have, but reserve at least 15 mins for this
Materials needed: A full track
Skill level required: None if you choose to run this as a non-contact drill
Description: Divide skaters into three even groups. Each group sends a pair consisting of a jammer and a blocker to make their way through the other two opposing groups. When the jammer breaks through a group, she and her blocker should move onto the next pack of opposing blockers. Once the jammer/blocker pair makes it back to their original group, a new pair is sent off to fight their way through the opposing packs. Dependent on time, each skater should go through the drill as both a blocker and a jammer.
