New Centennial & Falcons Hockey Partnership

The Park District of Highland Park is partnering with the Falcons Hockey Association (FHA) for instructional hockey programs at Centennial Ice Arena.  In the new partnership, Falcon professionals will conduct the ice arena’s hockey programs for children ages three and one-half to thirteen.  The programs include: Parent & Child Hockey, Hockey Skating 1 and 2, and Hockey Skills.

   “The Falcons are honored and thrilled to be partnering with the Park District of Highland Park on their hockey classes,” said Steve Dry, President of the Falcons Hockey Association. “With the Park District’s assistance the Falcons will make the District’s hockey program the best it has been.  We look forward to meeting all the new families and teaching the great game of hockey!”

    FHA provides competitive and recreational hockey for all youth ages.  The Association offers travel, girls travel, and house league hockey.  Centennial Ice Arena serves as the home rink for FHA and the arena’s hockey programs are feeder programs for FHA.

     “It is a great fit to have the Falcons professionals teaching our entry-level hockey programs,” said Chris Maliszewski, Recreation Manager – Athletics/Centennial Ice Arena.  “And, it is an added benefit for our hockey students to work with the Falcons professionals early on especially if they chose to move up to the Falcons as they become more proficient in the sport.”

     The mission of the Falcons Hockey Association is to conduct youth hockey programs, of unequalled quality, that provide a fun and exciting experience for skaters and their families, in an environment that promotes competition, sportsmanship, and teamwork, and that have a positive lasting impact upon the development of the participants as hockey players, individuals, and members of the community. FHA’s dedicated board, hockey professionals, and parent volunteer network provides competitive and recreational hockey for all youth ages.
