Be afraidâ€¦be very afraidâ€¦
Of ghosties and ghoulies and things that go bump in the night! Mostly because, on roller skates, bumps donâ€™t end well, unless you are in derby stance! This session, weâ€™ll work on avoiding danger, side-stepping evil, warding off frightening wrist-guard stink, and other feats of agility and daring-do.
Do come in costume, and do be prepared to sweat (in fear?). Through drills, games and a few special Halloween surprises, youâ€™ll learn to skate like your life depends on itâ€¦.Mwahahahahahaha!
This session is three full hours of terrifying bumps and thrilling grinds.
What youâ€™ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:
Youâ€™ll learn all the basics of roller skating, plus a few not-so-basic tips and tricks. 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.
