Our Mission

Our Goal

It’s pretty simple….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.

Funds raised from the Breckenridge Skatesgiving event are donated to Summit Youth Hockey to fund free hockey for children under 8, and hopefully provide scholarships for older age groups, and assist with gear as needed. Our goal is to use those funds to introduce children to an activity that teaches teamwork, confidence and good sportsmanship.

Our Impact (So Far)

Because of the high cost of hockey, SkatesGiving facilitates more children playing a sport that they might not otherwise play. This provides life skills that encourage leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, exercise, and strong relationships.

Our Commitment

To bring the benefits of SkatesGiving to other communities across the country. As we expand to different locations, We plan to provide sponsorship matching to provide seed funds so that Skatesgiving can impact each of the local programs. As we expand to multiple locations, local sponsorship funds, and drop-in donations raised in each community will remain in that location.

We will also work to bring in title sponsors whose funds will spread across all participating hockey programs. Funds from the Skatesgiving “Hockey Stories” Zoom Fundraiser will be spread across all of the communities that participate. Thank you for being a part of Skatesgiving and supporting our mission.
