 “The Flyers will open their first session of the Flyers Ice Hockey School on Monday at IceLine Quad Rinks in West Chester.

The school will allow young players to improve their overall game as well as their hockey knowledge through multiple on-ice sessions, off-ice conditioning, and time in the classroom.

The curriculum was designed by the Flyers’ coaching staff to develop hockey fundamentals and skills. The off-ice conditioning program was created by Flyers athletic trainer and strength and conditioning coach Jim McCrossin for recreational and youth hockey players.

Participants, the team said, will receive a Flyers Ice Hockey School jersey, a Flyers goodie bag, a report card, two tickets to a Flyers preseason game, and an opportunity to come to training camp at the Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, N.J.

On July 21 and 23, the participants also will get a chance to learn from Flyers ambassador Bob “The Hound” Kelly. The former Broad Street Bully and member of the 1974 and 1975 Stanley Cup champions will spend time with players and show them how to be a champion.”
