S.K.A.T.E. is an academic recognition program designed to encourage youth hockey players to strive for excellence in the classroom. The program was originally developed prior to the 1993-94 season by parent volunteers at a youth hockey organization in Minnesota to emphasize the importance of academic performance to young players. Focusing on the competitive nature of the young student-athletes, the program soon saw results with a significant increase in Grade Point Averages among youth hockey players.
In the 1997-98 season, the S.K.A.T.E. program was adopted and endorsed by Minnesota Hockey, the statewide governing body of amateur hockey. Within a few years, the S.K.A.T.E. program expanded to include nearly 100 youth hockey organizations and more than 10,000 participants on an annual basis. In a short time, the S.K.A.T.E. program has evolved into the most recognized and most popular off-ice initiative in youth hockey.
