2015 Atlantic District Camp Dates for 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003 Birth Years:

All of our camps will again be held at the Flyers Skate Zone, Voorhees, NJ.  This location has worked very well over the last two summers and has provided exactly what we are looking for - plentiful and quality ice, along with safe, clean accommodations and healthy meal options.  We will again be lodging at the Wingate and Marriott Spring Hill Suites. 

The main Atlantic District Player Development Camp will be held July 18-25 at the Flyers Skate Zone.  The camp will be divided relatively equally over the eight days between our four active birth years, plus additional time dedicated to all of our goaltenders.  For your camp dates, please go to each of our age groups with their specific time assignments.

  • 13U - 2002s

ALL RETURNING PLAYERS who participated last summer at Voorhees and/or who went to Quebec will be invited to the Development Camps!  There is NO TRYOUT FESTIVAL!  New 2002s (who did not participate at Voorhees or go to Quebec) will need to attend the OPEN TRYOUT on April 26.  Returners, and those selected from the open, will participate in two development camps at Voorhees (July & August).  Development camps will include, seminars, off ice training, position specific training, cross-ice small games, and competition.  The second camp will include a round robin tournament where we will divide the group into 4 equal teams that coached by top NHL/College/Junior and Prep School coaches.  We believe that this restructuring is a more practical and efficient way to help develop our young players.   Essentially, rather than "tryout out" for our camp, we are switching the paradigm and inviting all returning players to the development camp --- AND THEN evaluating and ranking in a competitive environment.

  • 14U - 2001s

ALL RETURNING PLAYERS who participated last summer at Voorhees will be invited to the Development Camps!  There is NO TRYOUT FESTIVAL!  New 2001 players will need to attend the Open Tryout.  In July we will host a development camp, which, like last summer, will be coached by top prep, college & junior and NHL coaches.   Then, we will then depart for Gavle, Sweden - with those players who want to go - in August for seven days of training, development and competition.  Details for Sweden are being finalized and will be emailed to 2001 families soon. We can tell you, we will invite 40 players for the trip which will be August 14-21.

  • 15U - 2000s

At the 15U level things will remain the same as they were in 2014.  We have the OPEN TRYOUT in April followed by the TRYOUT FESTIVAL in May (returning players are invited to Tryout Festival).  We will host our EVALUATON CAMP on June 13 &14 where we will create "Festival Team" who attend National Camp and our "District Team" (12F, 6D, 2G) who will go to Kent State for a regional tournament versus SE, Mid-Am, Michigan Districts.  Alternates will also be named for the Festival.  (The National Camp is July 7-13 --- Kent State Tournament is August 6-9). Players are to plan accordingly and be available for both events upon acceptance to the program.

                RECAP OF OUR 2014 SEASON:

2000 Team Goes To Sweden!

The camp is taking place at the home of the Brynas Hockey Federation, Lakerol Arena. Brynas is a suburb of Gavle, a town about 2 hours north of Stockholm with a population of app 90,000. Brynas is one of the oldest and most renowned professional clubs in Sweden and they have had tremendous success producing NHL and domestic national team talent. NHL players like Niklas Backstrom, Jakob Silferberg, Andreas Dackell, Anders Markstrom, Anders Lindbaek, Tomas Sandstroem, Andreas Johansson, Mats Naslund, Borje Salming and many more all came from this hockey hot bed. Brynas is at the forefront of developing young Swedish players.  In addition, Brynas youth, Junior and professional coaches will partake in our training. This will be a fantastic cooperative effort.
