PORTLAND, ME – October 14, 2021 – The Maine Mariners will hold five postgame “family skates” this coming season, allowing fans to take the ice after they enjoy a game. These events are spread out over the course of the season and add an extra element of fun to an outing at a Mariners game.

“Postgame skates are always such a fun and popular promotion,” said Adam Goldberg, Mariners Vice President of Business Operations. “I enjoy seeing the kids that are just learning to skate make their way around the rink as they figure out their new hobby and the adults who are reminded of their childhood.”

Kicking off the slate is a special postgame skate for military families following the Mariners “Military Appreciation” game on November 12th against the Trois-Rivieres Lions at 7:15 PM. This skate will be limited to families of military members only.

The second postgame skate of the season comes on “Kids Club Day,” a Wednesday matinee during holiday break, December 29th. Game time is 3:00 PM against the Worcester Railers. It is open to everyone.

The final three postgame skate events are also open to everyone: Saturday, January 22nd, Saturday, February 19th, and Sunday, March 27th. The Saturday games begin at 6:00 PM with Sunday puck drop at 3:00 PM. The full list of postgame skate dates is below:

Each postgame skate event will begin shortly after the Mariners game ends and will last approximately one hour.
