Skaters of all levels from complete beginners just taking their skates of out the box to all-star derby skaters are welcome to join us at Raw Meat. The skills we work on include stops, falls, jumps, skating backward, transitions, pace lines, weaving, agility, speed skating and more. We emphasize the basic skills that derby leagues will test in their try outs, but the same skills are also a great foundation for jam skating, or just being a strong, confident outdoor skater.
All skaters must have roller skates, helmet, mouth guard, and wrist, elbow and knee pads. If you donâ€™t yet have your skates, check out www.rollergirl.ca to buy or rent everything you need to get started roller skating.
Raw Meat meets on Saturday from 10 am to noon at Royal City Curling Club, at 75 East 6th St. in New Westminster. Sessions are just $12.
At Raw Meat, we just have two rules: 1. Be safe. 2. Donâ€™t be an ass-hat.
See you on the track!
