ABOUT US

Portage Skates is a non-profit sports organization dedicated to furthering roller sports in all forms and creating a healthier and happier Portage County. We are based in Kent, Ohio, USA (Portage County). Events sponsored by "Portage Skates" are usually held to help raise funds for the Portage County Park Foundation to help aid Portage County in maintaining our bike and hike trails, to make it a safer county for roller sport enthusiasts. Ohio contains the largest number of roller rinks of all the US States and we plan to help encourage skaters in Ohio to get out there and get the sport in the eyes of the community, make a skatement, and start a new skating revolution! We will soon tell you more about the officers in our group, but in the meantime, just know that anyone involved in this website is a roller-skater-for-life, rink-rat, or skater-lover, and we love the sport. We also love exercise and having fun, and when the rinks aren't open, we like to find other ways to roll together. We hope you'll roll with us, too!
