Panthers Development League


The purpose of the Florida Panthers Youth Development League is to create a learning atmosphere which allows players to improve their skills and develop new ones. By providing two practices a week, the Florida Junior Panthers travel coaches will implement the American Development Model (ADM) to maximize age-based skill development. Our long-term approach allows us to grow the game starting with the 8U age levels and create an ideal bridge between recreation, high school, and travel hockey. This league will forge a path for opportunities and success for ALL youth hockey players. Each season of PDL has evaluation dates, player draft, game/practice/blackout dates. Each player also must have a current USA Hockey Certification number which the player must have prior to registration. This league is not open to travel hockey players who are currently on a travel team within ANY organization. No exceptions! Players who were born after February 2014, will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for the 8U team.
