This session of Raw Meat, weâ€™re going to take a look at good roller skating form. If you are a beginner, weâ€™ll go over tips and tricks to help you skate with good form right from the beginning. If you are an experienced skater, youâ€™ll feel the burn.
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.
Raw Meat has two rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Donâ€™t be an asshat. All sessions are non-contact.
