But itâ€™s nice and toasty inside the gym at Thunderbird Community Centre, especially once you warm up with stops, falls, jumps, weaving, agility, and all the other skills and drills that will make you a top-notch roller skater.
On Saturday, Nov. 23, from 5 to 7 PM, come join us at Raw Meat, where youâ€™ll learn all the roller skating basics, and a few fun tricks, plus some fun and games. Whether you are brand new to roller skaters, or you are an experienced skater looking for an off-season workout, everyone is welcome.
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.
