A Thanksgiving Tradition
We value a community that is kind, welcoming and generous.
A strong community is an inclusive place that brings people together from all backgrounds, ages and experiences
SkatesGiving is about giving and fundraising to get kids to the rink and to keep them coming back.
SkatesGiving is a wonderful day filled with friends, family, hockey, laughs, and pie
What Is SkatesGiving?
Put your bird in the oven and come skate for a great cause.
SkatesGiving is a drop in style skate on Thanksgiving morning used to raise funds for your local hockey association. Money is raised via sponsors, skate registration, merchandise and pie sales in order to direct funds to the local youth program. On Thanksgiving morning, we rent a few hours of ice for a non-competitive, fun and inclusive skate for everyone of all skill levels. Register today for the next SkatesGiving in your town!
SkatesGiving Benefits the Community
Get more kids to the rink. And keep them coming back.
By introducing more kids to hockey, SkatesGiving strengthens community ties, promotes excellent skills in our youth, and fosters exercise and good mental health at an early age .
