♪Yeah ewe…(insert guitar solo and generally flinging about here)♪
Sorry, I’m on a bit of song tangent this week. 

So, I expect you are all nicely recovered from the awesomeness of sock derby because it’s time to get back to business! The business of being awesome and having fun on roller skates that is. I hope all you new lambs have been having a blast on your skates and learning great things with us so far.

This week we will work on roller skating fundamentals (derby stance, falls, stops) and some fancy pants pace lines. We are also going to bust out some agility and pack work! Don’t think I’ve forgotten about the fitness either I’m going to…♪ make a meal outta ewe and come back for more… (insert even more guitar solo and generally flinging about here)♪

I have a new piece of homework for you this week, Consider it a little gift from me to you. If you haven’t seen it yet go and read this blog entry that I was reminded of this week. If you’re thinking of trying out for TCRG Fresh Meat this year I think you’re going to like it.

The Basics:

At our Lamb sessions, all levels of skater are welcome, but we will focus beginner skaters (Lambs) through the summer. If you are a more advanced skater, don’t worry, we’ll have lots of challenges for you, too.

This is the lesson to come to if you want to practice your basic skills. We will teach you all the fundamentals to skate safe and build your skill level in a fun, no-pressure, non-contact environment. Turning you into a bad ass is our specialty. If you are already a bad ass, you have found the right place. We like bad asses, but we don’t allow ass hats. It’s an important distinction.

Raw Meat Lamb sessions run for two hours (5 -7pm) every Saturday, with a special three hour edition (5 – 8pm) at the end of each month.

This session will be $5 and 2 hours. Fees are subject to change and are attendance dependent.

Who Can Come to a Raw Meat Lamb Session:

Anyone who isn’t an Ass Hat and wants to skate with some great people.

Raw Meat Lamb Sessions have no skating skills requirements. As long as you have all the correct gear (Quad skates, Helmet, Knee Pads, Wrist guards, Elbow Guards and a Mouth Guard) you are welcome to attend and skate with us. It is also a requirement of our venue that we use white or light toe stoppers and cover your knee and elbow pads with white or light hockey tape to avoid marking the flooring. No gear, No tape, No skate.

Don’t be afraid to attend these sessions if you are a complete beginner. We will teach you everything you need to know. On the same token, if you are an advanced skater, come on out! We’ll keep you hopping with our evil floor worms. Want to know more? You’ll just have to show up!.

The Rules:

We have two simple rules at Raw Meat: 1. Don’t be an Ass-Hat. 2. Be Safe. There is zero-tolerance for breaking these rules.

We operate in a strictly non-contact environment – no hitting, pushing or overly aggressive skating. But we will cover drills that involve safe touching of teammates and hip/arm whips. If you’re not ok with touching people, derby may not be the sport for you, but you won’t have to worry about getting shoulder checked with us.

We also run an advanced session on Saturday mornings. To attend these you must pass some basic skills testing. If you would like to attend one of these sessions and you are not a currently certified TCRG league skater please contact us or come to one of our night sessions and talk to us about your skating level.

See You All Saturday!
