4.2.1 Prior to the start of a jam, all skaters must be in position with the Blockers in front of the Jammers. The Pivot line is a straight line across the track at the head of the straightaway. The Jammer line is exactly 30 feet behind the Pivot line.

This rule covers a few other rules that appear elsewhere, such as false starts, and track design.

To be considered in position, Blockers must be in front of the Blockers, and, as explained in other rules, between the Pivot and Jammer lines.

The distance that the Jammer line must be behind the Pivot line is also covered in Appendix B: Track Design.
