About One Million Skates

Established October 1, 2012, One Million Skates (OMS) is a dynamic online lifestyle magazine dedicated to North America’s passionate, on-the-go minor hockey families. Celebrating the history and tradition of the great game of hockey, we feature inspiring editorial content, practical lifestyle information and unique tools and resources to help players and their families, coaches, associations and communities experience the most rewarding hockey experience possible.

In addition to informative articles on player development, nutrition, health, fitness, sports psychology, parenting and the joys and challenges related to the unique minor hockey lifestyle, OMS offers entertaining features on family life, food, travel, leisure and the latest must-have hockey finds.

In early 2013, OMS and Hockey Education Reaching Out Society (HEROS) teamed up in an expanded effort to connect the greater hockey community while empower youth through the game of ice hockey. The inclusion of HEROS adds valuable content to you, our readers and offers greater opportunity for the growth of the not for profit organization that is committed to teaching life skills at risk youth.
