January 24: The Rocky View Roller Derby Association is hosting a ‘Try It Night’ at the Frank Wills Memorial Hall (405 1 St E). The association’s two teams filled the SLS Sports Centre’s Totem 1 arena for an exhibition match back in May. “Through our fresh meat program we will teach you how to skate and be strong on your skates to get you ready to learn game play,” reads online promotional material for the event. “Once you reach minimum skills you can chose to move onto the team and learn game play strategies, or you can chose to be a referee if contact doesn’t interest you.” They add that no experience is necessary, and for attendees to wear comfy clothes and bring a water bottle. The session runs from 7-9 p.m..
January 25: The ‘Man Van’, a program of the Prostate Cancer Centre, stops by the SLS Family Sports Centre from noon-3 p.m.. Free, baseline PSA blood tests for men aged 40-80 years old. The centre says the tests are not a glove test, and that no appointment is necessary. Men over 18 years old can receive blood pressure, blood sugar, waist circumference, and stress check measurements.
