SKATE 48 Hockey Challenge

In-Person SKATE48 Hockey Will be Back in February 2023!!!

This year has proven to be a challenging one once again, but you can rest assured that we aren’t giving up on this popular event and plans are to resume SKATE 48 in February 2023.

We appreciate the interest teams have shown in SKATE 48 in the past and ask that you remain committed to supporting the many children’s causes that have benefited from the funds raised at SKATE 48.

The SKATE 48 organizing committee will be in touch with past participants as soon as planning efforts for our February 2023 event begin. In this, our 31st anniversary, we are hopeful that SKATE48 will again operate as a live in-person event, with actual hockey games being played.

If you have any questions about SKATE 48, please submit them through our contact form.

Thank you for your patience and commitment to 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 $3.6 million has been raised for children’s charities since its inception in 1990.

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!
