The Northbrook Park District continues to follow local, state and national COVID-19 guidelines. At this time, face masks are recommended but not required at the Northbrook Sports Center. 

For more than 40 years, the Northbrook Park District Skating School has offered recreational fun and competitive opportunities for the entire family. A staff dedicated to high standards has produced many national-level skaters, and the diversified programming offers ISI and USFS avenues to all patrons.

With an elite level of customer service, the Northbrook Sports Center is home for all your skating needs―offering hockey and skating classes for all ages, public skating, freestyle, cosmic evening skating, holiday skate and dance camps, synchronized skating teams, competitive figure skating teams, a speed skating club and special events.

The Northbrook Sports Center is one of the busiest sports venues on the North Shore. The facility houses two year-round NHL-sized ice rinks, dance rooms, concession stand, Registration Office and rental facilities for parties and meetings, along with an outdoor swimming pool.

History

The Pfingsten Road property was purchased in 1965 for $201,708. In 1968, the Park District built and opened a sports complex with an outdoor swimming pool, one indoor skating rink, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, tennis courts and a playground, covering 23.5 acres. A second rink was added in 1973. The pool, tennis courts and playground have been upgraded over the years, and a major renovation and expansion took place in 1999-2000 to upgrade ice rink and pool operations.

Northbrook became known as “The Speed-Skating Capital of the World” after athletes who trained at the Sports Center became Olympic champions. Anne Henning and Dianne Holum won Gold Medals in the 1972 Winter Olympics, and Leah Poulos-Mueller won three silver medals in later Olympics. All were trained by former Park Board Commissioner Edward Rudolph, whose son also skated in two Olympics.
