In addition, the Cyclones are excited to be one of 11 organizations accepted into the USPHL’s tuition-free National Collegiate
Development Conference.

The Northern Cyclones are raising the bar for all development programs. In September, the Cyclones opened their new 10,000-square foot multipurpose facility with a state of the art gym, a video classroom, a players lounge and a classroom.

While providing players with all tools necessary for player development, the Cyclones also have a competitive elite schedule.

Through commitment, the Cyclones have made it their No. 1 mission to send their players to top quality schools, and they take
pride in watching their players succeed at the collegiate level.

“We are proud to be accepted into the NCDC division of the USPHL,” said owner Bill Flanagan. “The USPHL provides our program with the very best levels, competition, and exposure. We now have an ultimate opportunity in player development.”

For the upcoming season, the Cyclones will host a Pre-Draft Camp at the Cyclones Arena in Hudson, N.H., that will be open to players within the birth years of 2001 to 1997.

The camp will be held on Friday, April 28, through Sunday, April 30. Camp will begin at 4 p.m. on Friday and will start at 8 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

The camp will include a practice on Friday, two games on Saturday. The organization will then select players for an All-Star game on Sunday.

The Cyclones will also host a Main Camp, which will be invitational only, but players will also be able to apply for a spot. The camp will begin on Thursday, July 20, through Sunday, July 23.

This camp will include a practice on Thursday, two games per team on Friday, one game per team and two All-Star games on
Saturday, and a Prospect Game and All-Star game on Sunday.

“These camps will help us identify and select players that will make an impact on our growing tradition,” said Flanagan. “We
intend to then provide those players with the proper tools to increase player development. That will add to our over 200 college placements.”
