Be sure to come early! Right at noon, Coach Moneyball is going to give a short talk on derby stats. Want to know what a +/- is? Yah you do. Be at RCCC to learn why you should always know yours!
Raw Meat Roller Skating Lamb Session Basics:
At our Lamb sessions, all levels of roller skater are welcome. These sessions will focus on basic roller skating skills, including stops, falls, agility, skating with others, and more. Our emphasis is on the skating techniques you will need if you hope to join a roller derby team one day, but jam skaters and people hoping to get around the seawall in one piece will learn some new tricks too. There are always fun and games, and advanced skaters will be challenged.
Are you a complete beginner? Never fear! 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 donâ€™t allow ass hats. Itâ€™s an important distinction.
Sessions are $12. Sessions will run at Royal City Curling Club, 75 East 6th St. in New Westminster, from 12:30 to 2:30 every Saturday until August 31.
Who Can Come to a Raw Meat Lamb Session:
Anyone who isnâ€™t an Ass-Hat and wants to roller 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 Guardâ€”no exceptions) you are welcome to attend and skate with us.
Please remember to put your name on your helmet or the back of your shirt so we can know what to call you on the track!
We have two simple rules at Raw Meat: 1. Donâ€™t be an Ass-Hat. 2. Be Safe. There is zero-tolerance for breaking these rules.
