YouTube TV Package Another Step in the Growth of High School Hockey

Monday’s APAC game between Malvern Prep and La Salle will be streamed live from Hatfield Ice Arena on the Flyers Cup YouTube channel.

Monday’s game is the first of a 10-game Game of the Week package that will air between now and mid-February and feature games from each scholastic league in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

The YouTube package provides a vehicle for exposing high-school hockey to a wider audience, potentially including those who have not witnessed hockey at the high-school level before.
It’s not the first time that TV has been used as a medium to draw new fans to the sport.

In 1967, the National Hockey League expanded from six teams to 12. That’s when the Philadelphia Flyers came into existence, along with the Pittsburgh Penguins, the St. Louis Blues, the Minnesota North Stars (now the Dallas Stars), the Los Angeles Kings, and the California Seals (now defunct).

That same year, CBS launched a Game of the Week telecast which gave many American sports fans their first exposure to the National Hockey League.

The upcoming series of high-school games on YouTube will serve the same function.

The games will be streamed HERE

The schedule is as follows

Monday 12-12 5:15 La Salle vs. Malvern Prep

Friday 12-16. 8:45 Lower Dauphin vs. Hershey

Thursday 12-22 7:00 Conestoga vs. Penncrest

Thursday, January 5 7:10 Plymouth Whitemarsh vs. Abington

Friday, January 13 6:30 Radnor vs. Owen J. Roberts

Friday, January 20 9:00 Eastern vs. Washington Township

Friday, January 27 6:30 Father Judge vs. Salesianum

Wednesday, February 1 7:20 Pennridge vs. Council Rock South

Friday, February 10 6:30 West Chester East vs. Avon Grove

Monday, February 13 9:00 West Chester Rustin vs. Conestoga Girls

Hockey Happenings is looking for interested individuals to shoot video of Atlantic Prep Athletic Conference games. We’re seeking students, parents, and hockey enthusiasts who have experience shooting/editing video.

Flyers Alumni Association Presents An Adaptive Bike Surprise

We thank Help Hope Live for providing this content

We are so excited to announce our 20th adaptive bike giveaway to a local recipient living with disabilities. This weekend, nine-year-old Raelynn Alaina Morrison got a chance to ride her new adaptive bike – customized to her mobility needs.Flyers Alumni Brad Marsh pushes 9-year-old Raelynn as family members and neighbors look on. Raelynn is smiling from ear to ear as she sits atop the bright orange ad black adaptive bike.

“It was truly magical,” observed our Executive Director, Kelly Green. “Raelynn was completely surprised and overjoyed, and she was able to ride her new bike independently. It was so special. It will really help her not only to ride with her sibling but also to continue to progress in physical therapy as she gets more activity and exercise. The entire family was so grateful.”9-year-old Raelynn rides her new adaptive bike in the street outside of her home as Philadelphia Flyers Alumni Bob Kelly, Brad Marsh, and Joe Watson look on smiling. Raelynn is being pushed by a family member who wears a black Flyers jersey that matches hers.

“Raelynn was so happy. This little girl was amazing!! Yup, I cried.”

Born 10 weeks premature, Raelynn is living with cerebral palsy, quadriplegia, and symptoms of epilepsy and sight loss. Her family is grateful for her warm and smiling presence. Her diagnosis comes along with a multitude of care and wellness challenges, including a need for ongoing therapy and surgical procedures to maintain as much flexibility and motion in her legs and feet as possible.

For kids like Raelynn, an adaptive bike can be a game-changer, giving them access to a classic childhood pleasure while increasing their ability to enjoy exercise, fresh air, and spending time with their families and communities. However, insurance typically refuses to help with the cost of an adaptive bike, leaving families on the hook for $5,000 or more out-of-pocket.

With the help of generous partners, including the Flyers Alumni Association, our local Freedom Concepts adaptive bike giveaways bring joy within reach.Flyers Alumni Brad Marsh holds the back of the black and orange Flyers themed adaptive bike as 9-year-old Raelynn sits on the bike and raises one arm into the air. Raelynn and a family member wear matching black Philadelphia Flyers jerseys. They are in a concrete driveway.

Raelynn’s bike giveaway was made possible with assistance from our friends at the Flyers Alumni Association through their Every Child Deserves a Bike program. We love working with Brad, Bob, Joe, and the entire Flyers Alumni family to bring these special moments to life!

Raelynn’s family will continue to fundraise with Help Hope Live for the out-of-pocket expenses associated with her diagnosis. Said Kelly Green:

“They adore their Client Services Coordinator. They are coming up with so many great fundraising ideas!”
