NOTE: You are viewing the January 1, 2013 revision of The Rules of Flat Track Roller Derby, which is officially retired.
The current version of the rules can be found at Rules Central.
4.1.1 - The pack is defined by the largest group of in bounds Blockers skating or standing in proximity and containing members from both teams.
188.8.131.52 - Proximity is defined as not more than 10 feet (3 m) (as measured from the hips) in front of or behind the nearest pack skater.
4.1.2 - When two or more groups of Blockers equal in number are on the track, are more than 10 feet (3 m) from one another, and no single group meets the pack definition, no pack can be defined. Skaters will be issued a penalty for intentionally creating a no pack situation, or destroying the pack (see Section 6.10.2). Both teams are responsible for maintaining a legally defined pack. A skater or group of skaters is always responsible for the consequences of their actions. If their actions create a no pack situation (except those covered in Section 184.108.40.206), they should be penalized as directed in Sections 6.10.9–6.10.20.
