The Philadelphia Flyers announced that they will open their summer prospect camp at The Virtua Center Flyers Skate Zone in Voorhees, New Jersey, on Sunday, July 20. Thirty-six players are scheduled to attend the weeklong camp.


Among the players participating in this camp are Flyers’ first-round draft picks, Steve Downie (2005), Claude Giroux (2006), James van Riemsdyk (2007) and Luca Sbisa (2008).

On Wednesday, July 23, the Flyers will hold their annual conditioning event, Trial on The Isle, through the streets and waters of Avalon and Stone Harbor, New Jersey. Players, who are in town as part of the team’s Prospect Camp, will demonstrate their conditioning through their participation in a triathlon, which includes cycling, kayaking and running.

This all-day event starts and finishes at the fire station at the intersection of 96th Street and 2nd Avenue in Avalon. Following the Trial on The Isle, the players will be available for autographs at the Windrift Resort Hotel and will later participate in a softball game against local celebrities at the 80th Street Field. Proceeds from t-shirt sales will go to the Comcast-Spectacor Foundation.

The following players are scheduled to attend the conditioning camp:
