Are you ready, ladies?
Sit down, and take a deep breath and prepare yourself for the awesome. The awesome that isâ€¦Steve. Yes, thatâ€™s right, Steve Colt is our special guest coach this week. Oh, yeah. Get out the spurs and be ready to rideâ€™em cowgirl!
You asked for it and now you got it! Come to Raw in your favourite pair of panties on the outside, because thatâ€™s what derby girls do! And thatâ€™s how Steve likes it.
Steve is in the house and will be putting you all through your paces so be prepared to sweat and whatever you do get low. Lower. Oh, we all know you can get lower than that. Steve dares you to wear your bra on the outside, too.
What is Raw Meat?
Raw Meat Vancouver is a roller skating/non-contact roller derby drills group for women who want to learn to roller skate, learn roller derby skills, and have fun. We learn stops, falls, proximity skating, hip/arm whips, roller derby strategy, pace lines, agility, fitness, and more. Raw Meat Vancouver is an independent group, and is not affiliated with any roller derby league.
Who can come?
Women of any skill level are welcome. Beginner skaters, we will help you learn to stop safely, and build your roller skating skills at your own pace. For advanced skaters, we will keep it interesting with skills challenges, roller derby strategy drills, fitness, and fun & games.
What should you bring?
To participate, you will need roller skates (not roller blades); a helmet; wrist, knee and elbow pads, and a mouth guard. The venue also requires that you have white/light toe stops, and put white, non-marking tape over black knee pads.
You donâ€™t have to wear booty shorts (though they are encouraged), but stretchy, close-fitting exercise pants/shorts will be most comfortable. You will hit the floor, so make sure you donâ€™t mind getting dirty and sweaty!
Raw Meat sessions are strictly non-contact. We do not allow leaning, hitting, or overly aggressive skating. We do practice hip/arm whips and skating in close proximity. If you arenâ€™t comfortable grabbing a girl by the hips, derby is not going to be your sport. May we suggest badminton instead?
Raw Meat has two simple rules: 1. Be safe. 2. Donâ€™t be an ass-hat. There is zero tolerance for breaking either rule, and you will be asked to leave if you do.
This session will be $5.
Raw Meat runs from 5-7pm every Saturday, with a 3-hour session (5-8) on the last Saturday of every month. Three-hour sessions are $7. This pricing is attendance-dependent.
Oh and Steve says â€œGET LOWER STILL!â€
See you Saturday!
