Future players

The Phantoms scouting staff are always searching for the next generation of talent. During the 2021 summer, the Phantoms coaching staff teamed up with NCAA coaches and its Maryland Black Bears NAHL affiliate and held a Futures Camp Series at rinks across the country. These unique camps provided opportunities for younger players to gain exposure to Junior 'A' scouts and coaches from our USHL and NAHL coaches as well as select NCAA Division I and III coaches. Camps were held in Pittsburgh, PA; Washington D.C; Princeton, NJ; and New Haven, CT.  The Phantoms will hold similar camps in summer 2021 for birthyears 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009.
