July 19: Remember When Skating Was Fun?
You know, like last Saturday, when we had an awesome time skating at Raw Meat? You can know that joy again THIS Saturday! Join us at 10 AM for special guest coach Mean Sprout, as she shows you some of her championship style.
Meat Sprout will show you the roller-skating tips and tricks that let this Faster Pussycat cut through blockers like a Siamese kitten through a fresh patch of catnip. Youâ€™ll have the best time on eight wheels youâ€™ve had all week.
New to roller skating? Thatâ€™s ok! Weâ€™ll show you how to get going safely, and youâ€™ll progress faster than you think you can.
Experienced skater? Welcome! Come skate in a fun, no-pressure environment, and enjoy some time playing on your wheels. You might even learn a new trick or two.
Planning to try out for a league this fall? Then get your butt on the track, because nowâ€™s the time to build your skills and your fitness.
No matter your skill level, as long as you arenâ€™t an ass-hat, you are welcome to skate with us.
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!).
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.
Weâ€™ll be at Royal City Curling Club, 75 East 6th Avenue in New Westminster, every Saturday from 10 AM to Noon all summer long, until August 30.
Starting in September, weâ€™ll move back to Thunderbird Community Centre.
1. Be safe.
2. Donâ€™t be an Asshat.
