Have a Holly, Jolly, Christmas, and be sure to have an extra serving of pieâ€¦Pie Voltage that is! Our favourite guest coach is going to bring a sweet, heaping filling of whoop-ass sandwiches between a flaky, buttery crust of skills, spills and drills, with a fluffy whipped topping of a game or two. You know you want to come on out and get a heaping serving of roller skate pie this Saturday!
Are you thinking of taking up roller skating in the new year, as a New Yearâ€™s Resolution? Thatâ€™s awesome! But why wait? Grab your skates, and git â€˜er done this Saturday. Thereâ€™s no time like the present to start working toward your goals. Besides, everyone loves Pie!
What youâ€™ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:
You will learn the basics of roller skating, including stops, falls, agility drills, skating form, roller skating in proximity with others, a few fun tricks, and some (non-contact) roller derby strategy drills.
All levels of roller skater, including beginners, are welcome. Weâ€™ll help beginners learn to skate, and give more advanced skaters some fun drills and games.
What to bring:
You must have roller skates, and all safety gear: knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, helmet, and mouth guard. The venue also requires everyone to use white or light-coloured, non-marking toe stoppers. If your knee pads are black, please cover them with white, non-marking hockey tape. Vertical strips of tape work best.
Sessions are $7, and take place every Saturday from 5-7 at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St., Vancouver. Itâ€™s very close to Rupert Skytrain Station.
Sessions are drop-in. Just grab your gear and come join us!
Raw Meat has two rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Donâ€™t be an asshat.
All sessions are non-contact.
A Note on the December Schedule:
There will be Raw Meat sessions on Dec. 7 and Dec. 14, and then we shut down for a Christmas break. Join us again in the new year on Jan. 11.
