What: Three hours of roller skating skills and roller derby drills
Who: All levels of roller skater, full safety gear required
Why: Because it’s awesome
How much: $7

Well, it’s been a long week, and I don’t have anything clever to say in this week’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. I’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 you’ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:

We’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.

The rules:

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