WELCOME TO SKATE 48

SKATE48 is Going Virtual!!!

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 $3.5 million has been raised for children’s charities since its inception in 1990.

In this, our 30th anniversary, SKATE48 will operate as a virtual event, because of Covid-19.  Despite no actual hockey games taking place, we need you to sign up on – and carry on with the hard work of raising funds to meet our community needs.

We are celebrating our 30th anniversary under very challenging times and we need you to rally your team, your friends, and your family to come to the support of this important community fundraiser.  Many charities are hurting because of Covid-19, so we can’t let them down.

Our success depends on you!
