Pump up the jam
pump it up
while your skates are stomping
And the jam is pumping
look ahead the crowd is jumpin’

pump it up a little more
get the party goin’ on the skate floor
see ’cause that’s where the party’s at
and you’ll find out if you do that
I want a place to say:
“get your booty on the floor tonight”
make my day

It’s time to put on your roller skates, get on the track, and bust a move! As usual, on the last Saturday of the month, we have a special three-hour session. We’ll go over all the usual roller skating skills and drills (stops, falls, agility, skating form, jumping, skating with others, and more), and in hour three, we’re going to have a little fun with jamming skills.

See you there!

What you’ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:

Want to learn to roller skate? You’ve come to the right place!

At Raw Meat Vancouver, 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.

Whether it’s your very first time on skates, or your 10,0001st, please join us at Raw Meat. All levels of roller skater are welcome. We’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.
It’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. Don’t be an asshat.

All sessions are non-contact.
