The Franklin Park Ice Arena is your source for great hockey for all ages!
Our youth program, Panther Paws, begins with instructional hockey focusing on skating and skill development for children 3 years and older.
Once they learn to skate AND learn to play the game, your child can then progress into either our Junior Panther program or our Fall/Winter or Spring Panther Hockey Program. Junior Panthers is for players ages 5 to 8 who have graduated from our Panther Paws program, but might not quite be ready for league play yet or are still too young. Our Panther Hockey program offers teams from the Gold Mite, Squirt, Pee Wee, Bantam & Midget levels. These teams play Tier III hockey in the Northwest Hockey League.
In addition, we offer all-girl hockey teams. The Pink Panthers play in the Northern Illinois Hockey League for the Fall/Winter season and participate in specialized skills clinics, scrimmage games & a tournament for the Spring season.
