If you didn’t get tendered, drafted or invited to main camp, time is starting to run out to find junior team for the upcoming 2019-20 season. Rest assured, the Jr. Flyers EHL Junior team has just a few roster spots available and will be having its final open junior tryout skate on Saturday, July 13 at Ice Line to fill out its team.
The open tryout skate is comprised of two on-ice sessions (10:00am – 11:30am and then 1:00pm – 2:30pm). There also is a tour of our fantastic facilities, and it gives you the chance to see the surrounding community.
To secure your spot for this opportunity, please reach out to General Manager and Head Coach Jerry Domish at (610) 389-9076 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Jr. Flyers 2009 and 2006 teams won their respective divisions in the Philadelphia Shootout – a Memorial Day weekend tournament held at Ice Line.
The ’09 team entered the championship game as the number one seed having previously defeated the Knighthawks 6 – 3 in game one, beating Mayhem 4 – 1 in game two, beating the Valley Forge Minutemen 5 – 1 in game three and the SHD Selects 7 – 0 in game four of round robin play. The Jr. Flyers defeated fourth seed SHD Selects 3 – 1 in the semi-finals, and they then defeated the third seed Knighthawks 5 -0 in the finals.
The ’06 team was the number one seed going into the championship game. They had defeated Team Kanaly 5 – 0 in game one, beat DC Selects 8 – 0 in game two and then beat SHD selects 3 – 1 in game three of round robin play. They defeated the fourth seed DC Selects 6 – 2 in semi-final play, and they then beat the second seed SHD Selects 6 – 2 in the finals.
Overall, it was an excellent tournament for the Jr. Flyers organization. In addition to the two division championships, the ’08 and 16U teams advanced to the semi-finals while 621 Hockey (comprised of three-fourths of the Jr. Flyers 2010 team) and the ’05 team reached the finals for their respective division.
