Thank you to the hard work and dedication of our Portman volunteers we are able to offer the community a very unique opportunity during the winter months. Unlimited free ice (weather permitting) is not common across most hockey communities. As an association, we encourage our Portman kids to spend as much time as possible down at the rink participating in unstructured play. Games are fun, while practice helps to develop fundamental skills, but “rink ratting” is where hockey players develop creativity and a passion for the game. Rink ratting is a critical component of hockey development.
Congratulations to the 2018-2019 Portman Rink Rats!
