Portman’s First Annual Great Skate Event: December 17, 3-6pm

Save the date, Portman’s first annual Great Skate will be held Saturday, December 17 from 3-6 p.m. at Portman Community Center. Everyone in the Duluth community is welcome to attend this outdoor event as we kick off the outdoor hockey season and celebrate our youth hockey players.

This event will also serve as the Association’s largest fundraiser of the year. In the weeks leading up to the Great Skate, current Portman players, plus squirts who previously played at Portman, are encouraged to solicit donations from their family and friends to participate in several fun challenges, including a laps contest, competition for fastest lap skated, most goals on net in 0:30 seconds, parents vs. kids race, and limbo. Best of all, 100% of the event’s proceeds will benefit Portman Hockey and allow us to cover costs associated with equipment, facilities, and jamborees/tournaments. They skate, we all win!

There will be food available for purchase, a silent auction, an appearance from UMD’s Champ, and the debut of our brand-new Zamboni, sponsored by Sonju Two Harbors. Stay tuned for more Great Skate details on our website and Facebook pages. For more guidance on how to collect donations and other FAQs, please see this helpful document.

Rink Ratting 2021 - 2022

The kids often tell us some of their best Portman memories are those spent rink ratting with their friends down at the rinks.  Keep track of your child's hours spent rink ratting, or ask your older kids to track their own hours.  We will email everyone once a month to collect hours, and the kids can earn prizes at the end of the season for their rink rat hours.  All of our rink ratters will receive a Portman Rink Rat T-shirt.
