Aug. 16: Misfit Invasion
Join Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating on Aug. 16 from 10 AM to Noon at Royal City Curling Club, 75 East 6th Ave., New Westminster.
Hordes of Misfits are taking over Raw Meat, and youâ€™ll need every ounce of your agility to evade them! This week, special guest coaches Iron First and Budakra of the Mainland Misfits will keep you on your toe(stops) with a session focused on agility and jumping. Bring your fanciest footwork, and expect the unexpected!
After this session of Raw, if you just canâ€™t get enough Misfits in your life, be sure to check out the West Coast Dust Up, on all weekend at Cloverdale Arena. This tournament will feature top Western Canadian teams! More info here.
Also, if you are thinking of trying out for the Misfits in the fall, be sure to check out their Fresh Meat Punch & Pie 2014 on September 10. This is a chance to meet the Misfits, and learn about their Fresh Meat program. More info here.
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! Upcoming Schedule Change
Due to circumstances beyond our control, the August 30 session of Raw Meat Roller Skating will be cancelled. So, Raw Meat is at RCCC for just two more sessions: Aug. 16 and 23. There will be a two-week break, and sessions will resume on September 13 at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St., from 5 PM to 7 PM every Saturday through the fall and winter.
What youâ€™ll learn at Raw Meat Roller Skating:
Weâ€™ll teach you roller skate, roller-derby style. Expect a variety of skating skills including stops, falls, jumps, agility, skating close to others, pace lines, games and more. Weâ€™ll also teach you some basic derby strategy. All of our sessions are non-contact, so you can learn without fear (well, fear of hip checks, anywayâ€”wheels can still be scary!). Our drills teach you the WFTDA basic skills, so if you plan on trying out for a league, youâ€™ll be prepared.
Not interested in derby but you still want to learn to roller skate? Thatâ€™s cool, too! The skills youâ€™ll learn will help you skate defensively (and maybe a little offensively) around obstacles such as rocks, branches, random tourists and stray toddlers.
What to bring to Raw Meat Roller Skating:
Every skater must have roller skates, a helmet, mouth guard, and wrist, knee and elbow padsâ€”no exceptions. Youâ€™ll get sweaty, and youâ€™ll hit the floor, so please dress accordingly.
Sessions are $12. Please bring cash, and exact change is appreciated. There is an ATM at Royal City Curling Club.
1. Be safe.
