Raw Meat Lamb Session: Wolf in sheep’s clothing

This weeks’ session runs from 5-7pm, Saturday 4th June at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St, Vancouver, BC.
Awoooooooooooooooooooooo! This week full moon is bringing out the beast in me! And this week Meatinatrix is away, no-one can save you now! Mwaaahaha!! I just ate Edward and Jacob, burped up some glitter & pansy wolf fur and I am preparing a killer lesson plan for this week. 

Time for some thrills and drills! Stops, falls, pace lines and games! I want it all! Bring on the Lamb related fun!

But most of all, what kind of wolf would I… be if we didn’t do a healthy dose of pack work? We are going to do lots of proximity work this week lambs! Being conscious of other skaters, no flailing and strategy! All at a slowed down pace so you can still have fun and learn while you are turning into predators. Bring you’re A-Game and leave the territory marking up to me.. awooooo!

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 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 would like to skate with 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!
