In case you arenâ€™t quite as derby obsessed as most Raw Meat skaters, you may not know that on Saturday June 1, the Terminal City All-Stars are playing the London (as in England) Rollergirls. This will a spectacular bout, and I hope you can make it.
But first, whet your derby appitite with a little Raw Meat! Weâ€™ll put you through two hours of roller skating drills and skills, and maybe even a few gamesâ€”with an English twist. Bring your roller skates, bring your safety gear, and bring your best British accent, as we celebrate the British invasion, roller-derby style.
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.
We operate in a strictly non-contact environment â€“ no hitting, pushing or overly aggressive skating. But we will cover drills that involve safe touching of teammates and hip/arm whips. If youâ€™re not ok with touching people, derby may not be the sport for you, but you wonâ€™t have to worry about getting shoulder checked with us.
See you all Saturday!
