If you love to skate, but want something other than figure skating or hockey, you can race! The Franklin Park Speed Skating Club trains skaters to compete locally, regionally and nationally in the exciting sport of short track speed skating.
Our Speed Skating Club was selected as the 2019 Best of Franklin Park Award in the Sports Club Category. The selection of this award speaks volumes about the program’s quality and commitment to our students.
Practices are on Tuesday evenings from September through February. You can try the sport using your hockey or figure skates. Once you’ve decide to join the club, our coaches will help you select proper equipment.
If you have any questions, please contact Dejan Gakovich at 630-853-0435 or the Ice Arena at 847-671-4268.
