A, B, C, it’s as easy as Plow, Hop, T
Or as simple as, Weave, Jump, Knee
That’s how easy skate can be!
T-t-t-t teachers gonna show you, how to get an A!
Oh Lambies do we ever have a treat for you this week. A substitute teacher is taking over and we think you’re going to like her very much. Meatinatrix and I are leaving you all in the capable hands of – Miss Behaving. You know her as Felicity when she ACs but this week she is going to be the department head – This is one substitute teacher you’re not going to screw with! She’s been waiting for the chance to whip you all into shape!
So make sure your uniforms are all neat and tidy for her lesson containing stops, falls, pack work and lots of class participation. You’re going to learn how to play nice and communicate with each other. It had better be in correct grammatical fashion too, lest she whack you with her ruler.
No giggling in the back row or passing notes! We want you all on your best behavior or you might have to spend time after class cleaning her erasers.
Don’t make her put you in the naughty corner either we hear that’s the worst.
P.S. We’ll miss you all! Draw us pictures of what you were doing for our fridges!
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 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!.
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.
