Beware! Beware the Strides of March!
If you want to develop power and speed as a roller skater, your stance and stride are crucially important. This session, weâ€™ll look at drills that will help you develop the power, strength and agility youâ€™ll need to decimate your 27-in-5 laps. By the end of the session, your crossovers will be strongerâ€”or youâ€™ll be closer to a crossover, if you canâ€™t do one yetâ€”and you have the tools and drills to keep working on your own. Whether this is your first time on skates or your thousandth, weâ€™ll work on skills that will help you get better!
You may also have very sore glutes come Sunday morning. Donâ€™t say you werenâ€™t warned!
What youâ€™ll learn at Raw Meat Roller Skating
At Raw Meat, we teach roller skating, roller derby style. Whether you have ambitions to skate in the world cup of roller derby, or you just want to hold your own against the tourists on the seawall this summer, we can teach you the roller skating skills you need to know. Each session features a variety of roller skating skills and roller derby drills, including: stops, falls, agility, jumping, weaving, skating in pace line, skating in a pack, positional blocking, and more.
All Raw Meat sessions are non-contact, so you can get a taste of derby without the hits.
All levels of roller skater are welcome, from beginner to expert.
What to bring to Raw Meat Roller Skating
All skaters must have roller skates (quad skates), helmet, mouth guard, and wrist, elbow and knee pads, no exceptions. The venue requires all toe stops be white or light, and all black knee and elbow pads to be covered in white or light coloured tape. This is to prevent black marks on the floor.
Sessions are $7. Exact change is appreciated.
The Rules of Raw Meat Roller Skating
