Philadelphia, PA -- The Philadelphia Revolution are proud to announce that they have officially been granted Tier I status for the Revolution Elite Program for the 2020-21 hockey season.
The Revolution, in conjunction with USA Hockey and the Atlantic District, are excited to welcome teams at the U15, U14, U12 and U10 Levels. Team President and General Manager Chris Kanaly, who is in his 11th year with the club had this to say, “We have been developing players at the highest levels for over a decade now. What we do is no secret. We have produced NHL draft picks and NCAA players year after year as an independent program in this district.
"It’s great to see USA Hockey and most importantly the Atlantic District recognize our hard work and dedication to youth hockey.”
Indeed it is an exciting time to be a part of the Philadelphia Revolution.
Since being acquired last February by Black Bear Sports Group, the Revolution have sold its EHL Junior franchises and will continue to focus on Youth Player Development.
“We are now positioned perfectly to focus our time developing players for the Junior and NCAA ranks," said Kanaly. "We have a seamless transition from the Revolution Elite to the NAHL (Maryland Black Bears) and the USHL (Youngstown Phantoms). This Elite Hockey model will make the Revolution the preeminent club in the Philadelphia Region.”
With Tier I, AAA Hockey teams from Squirt through U15, the Revolution will look to continue their growth in the Philadelphia marketplace.
Additionally, Kanaly touched on how special the coaching staff is in Philadelphia.
“The group of men that we have here in Philly leading this program are second to none," said Kanaly.
"We have had a storied history of great coaches come to our program. Our group is the best at developing players and giving these kids the right opportunities for advancement and NCAA placement!”
