Raw Meat Roller Skating March 29: A Snowy Day in March

The weather this weekend could be sunny, it could be raining, but one thing is for sure: there will be Snow—Snow Crash that is. Expect shenanigans, as well as solid tips on roller skating skills and techniques.

Join us on Saturday, March 29 from 5-7 PM at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St, for the best Snow Day you’ve had all season.

Please note our changing schedule!

On April 5th, due to the TCRG Home opener, there will be no Raw Meat Roller Skating session. Instead, head to Kerrisdale Arena to watch the TCRG. (Visit www.terminalcityrollergirls.com for more information).

On April 12th, we’ll be at Thunderbird as usual from 5-7.

On April 19th, our venue changes to the Royal City Curling Club in New Westminster. We’ll be there on Saturday mornings all summer, and we’ll return to Thunderbird in the fall. Stay tuned for more details.

What you’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

We only have two rules: 1. Be safe. 2. Don’t be an ass-hat.
