Flyers New Practice Facility and Locker Room

Rosehill shouldn't get too comfortable...

Somebody post pics if you find em'

I just saw video footage on the news...

New digs

After months of dust and construction, the Flyers were finally able to enjoy their new practice facility and locker room yesterday. They're still practicing in the same Skate Zone in Voorhees, but their portion of the facility is wrapping up a $4 million overhaul that makes the old one barely recognizable.

Yes, their new locker room is impressive, but it's the behind-the-scenes features not open to the media that have the players talking. There are new coaches offices, a team meeting area with a 72-inch touch screen monitor, a theater with a 100-inch projection screen, new workout facilities, hot and cold tubs for soaking and rehab, and a new changing room and lounge for players.

The Flyers' main locker room is highlighted by an illuminated puck in their ceiling bearing the team logo.

"It's awesome," Hartnell said. "You walk in and it's like a new house. You feel proud to be a part of an organization that spends millions and millions of dollars to make you feel more comfortable."

There is a reason for all of that.

"This place makes you want to come in early before practice and stay late," Jay Rosehill said. "It's unbelievable."

That's a lot nicer looking than the one at WFC. They should renovate that one too.

Complaining about the team renovating their practice facility is pathetic. As bad as anything you would see on the Flyers facebook page.

You got your opinion I got mine...just think that the Flyers should concentrate on winning not redecorating. Yet you know what's on a Flyers facebook page...hmmm

I'm fairly confident that the renovation was done by contractors, not players and coaches.

I personally think they should replace the logo overhead with Snider's head..kind of like 1984's Big Brother

what are you the Inquirer dumb-a55 reporter....just complain about everything. The Flyers have spent to the cap for the players since the cap was brought in so they don't go cheap on putting a team on the ice...now the results with players they have signed may not be what we all expected but why should it bother you if they try to make the workplace a better place.

just like no one should have responded to your terrible opinion. Who cares what's done to the room. I'm pretty sure this had no financial repercussions on anything the Flyers did this summer or will do in the future. You complained about absolutely nothing

That's the one thing that has always stuck out with me since 24/7. Their locker rooms in the WFC honestly make you think the building was from the 70's. They're always renovating something in that building, I think it's time to get on the locker rooms soon.
