Come celebrate the last Raw Meat of 2013! Kick off the holiday season in style. Hot, sweaty, stinky, roller derby style, that is! We’ll skate, we’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 Year’s resolution, why wait? Come out on Saturday, and get started skating!

What you’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. We’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. It’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. Don’t be an asshat.

All sessions are non-contact.
