    About Skate 48

    Founded in 1990, Skate 48 has a long standing tradition of fun hockey, a boisterous post-game meal, prizes, spirited conversation and bragging rights for the remainder of the year. Above all, an incredible amount of of funds have been raised over 25 years for local children's charities. Challenge a rival team to a one game hockey duel.

    The winning team dines on fine food and drink while the losing team drowns their sorrows in a hot dog? Either way you’ll have a blast and a good laugh at the licensed post game party.
