Raw Meat Roller Skating March 24: Zippy Headline Here!

All right, everybody, you know the drill(s)! Join us on Saturday, March 24 for two hours of roller skating goodness! If you missed the fantastic drills we learned last time, don’t worry. We’ll go over them again. Because, who doesn’t want to perfect the backwards snowplow? We’ll also take a look at some other great agility drills, and little bit of strategy.

For homework, think on this. In a scrimmage, when would blockers want the pack to go fast? When would they want it to go slow? Ponder that, and I’ll see you Saturday!

When and where?

Join us on March 24 at 2311 Cassiar St, from 5 to 7 PM!

Who can come?

Women of any skill level are welcome. Beginner skaters, we will help you learn to stop safely, and build your roller skating skills at your own pace. For advanced skaters, we will keep it interesting with skills challenges, roller derby strategy drills, fitness, and fun & games.

What should you bring?

To participate, you will need roller skates (not roller blades); a helmet; wrist, knee and elbow pads, and a mouth guard. All safety gear is mandatory for active participation in the lessons.

The venue also requires that you have white/light toe stops, and put white, non-marking tape over black knee pads. Covering the knee pads with vertical strips of tape works best. Canadian Tire sells multi-packs of white tape for a reasonable price.

The Rules:

Raw Meat has two simple rules: 1. Be safe. 2. Don’t be an ass-hat. There is zero tolerance for breaking either rule, and you will be asked to leave if you do.

Raw Meat sessions are strictly non-contact. We do not allow leaning, hitting, or overly aggressive skating. We do practice hip/arm whips and skating in close proximity. If you aren’t comfortable grabbing a girl by the hips, derby is not going to be your sport. Perhaps Parcheesi?
