Skate 48 Hockey Challenge in Support of Local Children's Charities


An annual hockey event to raise money for children's charities within the Waterloo Region.

  •  Over $2M Raised For Children Charities


    About Skate 48

    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, over $2.5 million has been raised for local children's charities since its inception in 1990.

    Challenge a rival team to a one game hockey duel and you'll enjoy both the competition on the ice, as well as the  satisfaction of knowing your helping make a difference in people's lives.  The winners dine on fine food, while the losers will have to be contended eating hot dogs.  Either way you’ll have a blast and a good laugh at the licensed post game party. 

    Last year 60 teams and 700 players joined us for a day of family fun and hockey at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium. Get in on the action!  Register now by clicking the "Register a Team or Player" button on this page.

    There are great prizes for players that reach fundraising levels of $300, $500 and $1000, plus we will later host a “Top 50 Party” for the top fundraisers.  While at Skate 48, you will also be able to purchase pro sports memorabilia at a discounted price.

Invest in an event that helps children's charities and be known as a community leader in generosity - check out our sponsorship opportunities here.
