Come celebrate the last Raw Meat of 2013! Kick off the holiday season in style. Hot, sweaty, stinky, roller derby style, that is! Weâ€™ll skate, weâ€™ll laugh, your quads will cry, a good time will be had by all.
After this session, we take a little break over the holidays. Our next session will be January 11. If learning to skate is part of your New Yearâ€™s resolution, why wait? Come out on Saturday, and get started skating!
What youâ€™ll learn at Raw Meat Vancouver Roller Skating:
You will learn the basics of roller skating, including 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. Weâ€™ll help beginners learn to skate, and give more advanced skaters some fun drills and games.
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 Thunderbird Community Centre, 2311 Cassiar St., Vancouver. Itâ€™s very close to Rupert Skytrain Station.
Sessions are drop-in. Just grab your gear and come join us!
Raw Meat has two rules: 1. Be Safe, 2. Donâ€™t be an asshat.
All sessions are non-contact.
