The Franklin Park Pink Panthers is a Tier II or AA girls hockey program servicing Chicago and the Northwest suburbs of Chicago, IL.  The Pink Panthers offer girls a place to play all-girls hockey in an all-girls competitive travel league.  Over the last several seasons, the Pink Panthers have grown from a beginner house-league program to a AA competitive girls group. We are an all-inclusive family that focuses on player development, skill acquisition, and player support at all levels. We welcome and encourage interested families to contact us about working with their daughter to try hockey, play hockey, and excel in hockey.

Why Be a Pink Panther?

  • 3-5 ice touches per week
  • Competitive League Play
  • Players experience strong skill development from dedicated coaches and rink staff
  • Our fees are 50% less than other AA programs comparable in ice time

The Pink Panthers participate in the Northern Illinois Hockey League (NIHL) in the all-girls division. NIHL will continue to Tier each division to maintain parity among teams.
