Happy New Year everyone!Did anyone make a resolution to:
- Learn to roller skate?
- Learn to roller skate better?
- Have fun?
- Be more awesome?
If you answered â€œyesâ€ to any of the above, I better see you at Thunderbird Community Centre on Saturday! Start the new year off right with two hours of roller skating skills, drills and spills. All levels of skaters are welcome, from beginner to expert. Donâ€™t worry if you just unwrapped a shiny new pair of skates and donâ€™t know what to do, weâ€™ll get you going (and stopping!) safely.
Join us every Saturday through the winter at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St. in Vancouver.
What youâ€™ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:
Weâ€™ll cover 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 2311 Cassiar St.
Raw Meat has two rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Donâ€™t be an asshat. All sessions are non-contact.
