This Saturday, the fabulous Hackinen sisters, Schwarzemegger of the Faster Pussycats and the Terminal City All-Stars and Smackinâ€™em of the Riot Girls, will show you some roller skating tricks you never thought possible. Edging, carving, agility, blocking and skating as a team are just some of the skills you can look forward to. Be forwarned, though. Come Sunday, your quads are going to feel terminated.
And donâ€™t worry. If just one session with these two isnâ€™t enough for you, later this summerâ€¦ theyâ€™ll be back.
About Raw Meat Roller Skating Meaty Sessions
These are our advanced sessions. They will focus on advanced roller skating skills, endurance, and an introduction to roller derby rules and strategy. These sessions feature advanced skills, but continue to be non-contact.
A skills test is required to attend Meaty sessions. If you are a current league skater who has passed WFTDA basic skills (the old test), or an on-skates WFTDA referee, you are welcome to attend any time. Just drop in! If you would like to take the test, come to our 12:30 session and speak to a coach, or email info (at) rawmeatvancouver (dot) com.
These sessions are $12. If you attend a Meaty session and stay to skate at a Lamb session (12:30-2:30), it is $18 for both.
