The Philadelphia Flyers Junior Hockey Club, also known as the Philadelphia Flyers Elite or the USPHL Flyers, are a Tier III Junior A ice hockey team based in Voorhees, New Jersey at the Flyers Skate Zone.
The team was created in 2013 as one of the founding members of the United States Premier Hockey League (USPHL) Premier Division, the highest level of the USA Hockey-sanctioned Jr. A league. It is owned and operated under the Philadelphia Flyers NHL team and parent owner Comcast-Spectacor.
On May 1, 2017 it was announced that the organization had come to an agreement to sell and relocate the Premier Division team. The team will be renamed the Lightning Hockey Club and will apparently be based out of the Pond Ice Arena in Newark, Delaware.
In addition to entering the USPHL-Premier Division, the Flyers Skate Zone also announced that their Team Comcast 16U and 18U midget teams would participate in the USPHL U16 and U18 Divisions.
