It is a dark time for the Beginning Roller Skater. Although the fear of Death by Skating has been defeated, Imperial bruises have driven the Raw Meaties from their hidden base and pursued them across the galaxy. Evading the dreaded Epic Wipeout, a group of freedom skaters led by Luke Skatewalker has established a new skating venue on the remote curling rink of New Westminster. The evil lord Meatinatrix, obsessed with training young Skatewalker, has developed thousands of challenging drills to probe the far reaches of your skating ability….

Raw Meat Roller Skating Lamb Session Basics:

At our Lamb sessions, all levels of skater are welcome. These sessions will focus on basic roller skating skills, including stops, falls, agility, skating with others, and more. 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 don’t allow ass hats. It’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 isn’t an Ass-Hat and wants to 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 Guard—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!

The Rules:

We have two simple rules at Raw Meat: 1. Don’t be an Ass-Hat. 2. Be Safe. There is zero-tolerance for breaking these rules.

We operate in a strictly non-contact environment – no hitting, pushing or overly aggressive skating. But we will cover drills that involve safe touching of teammates and hip/arm whips. If you’re not ok with touching people, derby may not be the sport for you, but you won’t have to worry about getting shoulder checked with us.

See You All Saturday! And don’t forget, the Terminal City Roller Girls have a bout at Minoru Arena at 5 PM on Saturday!
