Did you resolve to learn to skate in 2014? Then this is your lucky day! Or rather, Saturday, Jan. 11 is!
Join Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating on January 11 from 5-7 PM at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St., Vancouver, to start learning!
Whatâ€™s that? You didnâ€™t resolve to learn to skate in 2014? So what! Come join us anyway!
Oh, and you, yeah, you. I know you are an awesome skater, but that doesnâ€™t mean you canâ€™t come out and have a little fun with Raw Meat! Seriously, guys, come on back and visit some time!
If you want to do something, donâ€™t hesitate! Just do it! Grab your skates, and weâ€™ll see you Saturday!
What youâ€™ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:
You will learn the basics of roller skating, including stops, falls, agility drills, skating form, roller skating in proximity with others, a few fun tricks, and some (non-contact) roller derby strategy drills.
All levels of roller skater, including beginners, are welcome. Weâ€™ll help beginners learn to skate, and give more advanced skaters some fun drills and games.
What to bring:
You must have roller skates, and all safety gear: knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, helmet, and mouth guard. The venue also requires everyone to use white or light-coloured, non-marking toe stoppers. If your knee pads are black, please cover them with white, non-marking hockey tape. Vertical strips of tape work best.
Sessions are $7, and take place every Saturday from 5-7 at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St., Vancouver. Itâ€™s very close to Rupert Skytrain Station.
Sessions are drop-in. Just grab your gear and come join us!
Raw Meat has two rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Donâ€™t be an asshat.
All sessions are non-contact.
