The players, ages 16–20, carry amateur status under Junior A guidelines and hope to earn a spot on higher levels of junior hockey in the United States and Canada, Canadian Major Junior, Collegiate, and eventually professional teams.

The Philadelphia Junior Flyers were members of the Atlantic Junior Hockey League until the 2012-2013 hockey season. In 2013, the junior hockey leagues in the north east went through a re-organization, which included the Atlantic Junior Hockey League re-brandeding itself as the Eastern Hockey League.

The organization also fields a team at the Jr.B level in the Metropolitan Junior Hockey League as well as youth hockey select teams at the Midjet U18, Midget 16U, Bantam, Peewee, and Squirt and Mite levels.[3][4]
