Youth Hockey

Available Seasonally – September through February

Have a hockey lover in your house? Pekin Park District’s popular Little Stars Hockey program is designed to get the youngest hockey star hopefuls ready for recreational or competitive play.

While kids ages 3 – 5 will work on the fundamental skills of hockey in this program, the focus still is on having fun. Our teachers and coaches also get help from Pekin Dragon Hockey (as game schedules permit). That means some of the best coaches in the area will help your skater develop their hockey skills for the future! Some of the skills your child will work on in Little Stars Hockey include: power skating, stick handling, passing, shooting, and most importantly sportsmanship and team play. No prior skating experience is necessary to join this class and loaner equipment is available for all participants at no charge.

Actual games begin at the end of the first session. All games are non-competitive and are designed to teach team play and the love of the game. The league schedule includes two 45-minute practices and one game weekly.
