Flyers Prospect Camp

Press Release

The Philadelphia Flyers will open their summer prospect camp at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, New Jersey, on Tuesday, July 7. Among the 34 players that are scheduled to attend the weeklong camp are first-round pick James van Riemsdyk (2007) and all six of the Flyers’ 2009 NHL Entry Draft picks.

On Thursday, July 9, the Flyers will hold their annual conditioning event, Trial on The Isle, through the streets and waters of Stone Harbor, New Jersey. Players participating in the team’s Prospect Camp will demonstrate their conditioning by competing in a triathlon, which includes cycling, kayaking and running.

This all-day event starts and finishes at the intersection of 96th Street and 2nd Avenue in Stone Harbor. Following the Trial on The Isle, the players will be available for autographs at the Harbor Bizarre from 1:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. and will later participate in a charity softball game at the 80th Street Field. Fans are welcome at all locations to watch the prospects and all proceeds benefit Flyers Charities, a division of the Comcast Spectacor Foundation with a donation going to Veterans Causes.
