February 7: Riot on the Track
Riot on the Track
Hear ye, hear ye!
Our Sovereign Coach Percy Riot chargeth and commandeth all persons, being assembled, immediately to disport themselves with great joy, and gleefully to encircle to the derby track, and skate with exceedingly good form, upon the pains contained in the act made in the first year of Roller Derby, for encouraging enjoyable and riotous assemblies.
What to expect at Raw Meat Roller Skating
We teach roller-derby style roller skating in a fun, non-contact, non-competitive atmosphere. Whether you just want to learn to skate, or you are a top derby player looking for a little more time on skates, weâ€™d love to see you! Weâ€™ll cover roller skating basics like falling safely, how to stop, how to skate with agility, how to get faster, how to jump, and lots more. Carving, balancing, weaving, strategy, some weird things Snow Crash has inventedâ€¦who knows what weâ€™ll work on? Thereâ€™s always a range of skating skills in the group, so feel free to modify skills (easier or hard) as you need.
Weâ€™ll also introduce basic roller derby strategy and drills.
What to bring to Raw Meat Roller Skating
All skaters must have roller skates (not roller blades!), helmet, mouth guard, and wrist, elbow and knee pads. You must have white or light coloured toe stops, in order to avoid marking the floor. Also, please cover black knee pads with vertical strips of white tape, or securely cover them with socks or felt. Whatever you cover them with, make sure you can still slide on them.
Sessions are $7, and exact change is appreciated.
