Well, itâ€™s been a long week, and I donâ€™t have anything clever to say in this weekâ€™s write up. But, I do have three hours of roller skating skills, drills and fun for you on Saturday. As usual, the last session of the month is three hours. Iâ€™m thinking a little sock derby for the last hour? No minors sock derby! If you haven’t checked out WFTDA’s new roller derby ruleset, you should!
What youâ€™ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:
Weâ€™ll cover 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.
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 2311 Cassiar St.
Raw Meat has two rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Donâ€™t be an asshat. All sessions are non-contact.
