Are the grey skies getting you down? Dreaming of roller skating along the seawall with the wind in your hair (under your helmet, of course!) and the sun on your skin? Not excited for the next few months of grey skies?

Well, pop some Vitamin D and grab your gear, because just because it’s nasty outside doesn’t mean you can’t get your skate on. Come on out to Raw Meat and learn some new skating tricks and skills.

Are you a brand new skater? Now is a great time to learn! By spring, you’ll be zipping around like a roller-skating ninja. Are you an experienced skater, looking to keep fit and keep rolling through the off season? Come play with us! I guarantee you’ll get a workout!

Whatever your skating level, you are welcome at Raw Meat. Just be sure to bring all of your safety gear, and leave the ass-hat at home.

What you’ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:

You will learn the basics of roller skating, including stops, falls, agility drills, skating form, roller skating in proximity with others, a few fun tricks, and some (non-contact) roller derby strategy drills.

All levels of roller skater, including beginners, are welcome. We’ll help beginners learn to skate, and give more advanced skaters some fun drills and games.

What to bring:

You must have roller skates, and all safety gear: knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, helmet, and mouth guard. The venue also requires everyone to use white or light-coloured, non-marking toe stoppers. If your knee pads are black, please cover them with white, non-marking hockey tape. Vertical strips of tape work best.
Sessions are $7, and take place every Saturday from 5-7 at Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St., Vancouver. It’s very close to Rupert Skytrain Station.

Sessions are drop-in. Just grab your gear and come join us!

Raw Meat has two rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Don’t be an asshat. All sessions are non-contact.
