Players come first

The HEParks Hockey Club began in 2004 where it became one of the fastest growing programs to prominence at any time in Illinois.

The focus of the program is to give youth players and coaches the tools to effectively play and love the game…for life!

HEParks Hockey Club teams play in the Northwest Hockey League. Teams from Squirt (U10) to Midget (U18) play against other programs in what is termed as being a “house travel” league where players, capable of playing at a functional level are accepted on a first come basis. The league runs from September to March and teams are chosen through evaluations and when there are more than one team at any level, than the teams are chosen as equal as possible. Players are expected to all get balance ice time in games. Wolf Pack teams receive excellent training opportunities for the level of play and as much ice time or more as any other program.
