Panther Paws Group 3 or above

Junior Panthers

Little Blackhawks

Gold Mites

Jr. Panthers practice on the studio arena once a week, to work on skills that will help young skaters transfer to a team environment.

Jr. Panthers follows the USA Hockey ADM style to allow each player to learn:

Skating, Shooting, Passing, Puck Handling, and Body Control

Panther Hockey ADM Skills Clinics

Fall/Winter 2018-19 Jr Panthers!
Jr. Panthers is offered to young skaters born from 2010-2013. These skaters are either too young or not developmentally ready to play Gold Mites. JPs practice on the Studio Rink twice a week and compete in “jamborees” on the main arena ice against similar programs from neighboring ice arenas. They will also have several opportunities to interact with our Panther Gold Mite teams during some of the jamborees. The Jr. Panthers coaching staff works to create a team environment where kids can thrive on the combination of passionate coaching & fun game like experiences. 
All players will attend the first ice session at 6:10pm on September 28 followed by a brief parent meeting. From that point forward, players will be permanently assigned to either the Thursday or Friday team for the remainder of the session.
