Open Tryouts For Our 2005 Birth Year:

PROGRAM OVERVIEW:  This program is a prerequisite to being chosen for the Quebec teams.  For the 12's who are interested in going to the Quebec Pee Wee International tournament, we hosted an OPEN TRYOUT at the Flyers Skate Zone, Voorhees, NJ in June.    From the open tryout, we selected 68-80 players to then participate at a Tryout Festival.  Following the tryout festival, we will then select the fifty-four players who will make-up the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, NJ Devils & Philadelphia Flyers Quebec Teams.  As soon as the tryout festival schedule is complete, we will post it on our website!

Those goalies who are invited from the open tryout will also attend a District Goalie overnight Camp in June prior to the tryout festival.

    The 54 players (including goalies) chosen to attend Quebec will then be invited to a overnight weekend camp at the Flyers Skate Zone, Voorhees, NJ. Additional information on the weekend camp can be found in the overview page of the 2005 birth year.

Tryouts For Our 2000, 2001 and 2002 Birth Years:

The Atlantic District held our open tryouts for our 15, 16 and 17 year olds the weekend of April 22-23, 2017 at the Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, NJ.  The Open Tryout was strictly for players who did not participate in our 2016 Tryout Festival last year or who were not invited to go directly to this years tryout festival and who would like to be given the opportunity to tryout for the USA Hockey Player Development Camps that will be held in Amherst, NY over the summer.  The open tryouts are now complete and will not be held again until 2018.

The second stage of our tryouts for the 15, 16 and 17 year olds is our Tryout Festival, which is by invitation only to those returning players who were chosen from last year and those invited from the open tryout that we held in April.  No walk-ons or registrations will be taken.  We have finalized our invite list and are in the process of making up the teams that will participate at the Tryout Festival.  It will be held at the Flyers Skate Zone, Voorhees, NJ.  The event will be held May 20-21, 2017.

All players should plan on arriving one hour prior to their scheduled ice time to check in at the registration desk to receive your jersey and socks.  Players will be notified by email the week of the Festival as to the color of the team that they have been assigned to. 

 

From the Tryout Festival, for the 2000 birth year, we will choose the players/goalie who will attend the USA Hockey National Festival representing the Atlantic District.  We are permitted to send to the Festival at the 2000 birth year - 1 goalie, 6 forwards and 4 defensemen. 

From the Tryout Festival, for the 2001 birth year, we will be choosing the players/goalie who will attend the USA Hockey National Festival representing the Atlantic District. We are permitted to send to the Festival at the 2001 birth year - 1 goalie, 6 forwards and 5 defensemen. 

From the Tryout Festival, for the 2002 birth year, we will be choosing the players/goalies who will attend the USA Hockey National Festival and the players who will be attending the Kent State Festival, both representing the Atlantic District.  For the Kent State Festival, we are permitted to send a maximum of 25-28 and to the USA Hockey National Festival we are permitted to send 2 goalies,9 forwards and 6 defensemen.
