We get plenty of that..
When hitting jammers, the smarter blockers know better than to release after one hit to make sure she’s really down. Then we skate back, make her reenter behind us, and lather, rinse, repeat.
Duh. That’s just common sense.
We know the game happens behind us, so checking back there is second nature.
This is especially important for jammers, but also for goated blockers.
You can’t win a game if your jammer can’t get past the opposition. Know when to help her.

Her She Bad as ref
These two ladies are awesome and I adore them <3 I remember the first time I met Lacey was actually on campus at CU Boulder. She saw me with my skates and asked if I skated for the Bombers, and she introduced herself and Phoebe to me and was really excited that I skated for them. I was super starstruck. <3
