The Annual "Trial on the Isle" is scheduled for Wednesday, July 10th! As always, it will be a fun-filled day for Flyers prospects and fans alike. And, you never who else might show up!

“Trial on the Isle” is an annual event for Flyers prospects that involves a variety of fitness-related activities in and around the beaches of Stone Harbor, N.J. This year, we’ve made a few adjustments to make the event even more fan-friendly! The schedule is as follows:

9:00 a.m.—The day begins at the 96th Street Beach with a run south toward the point and returning where it began.  The run back will include physical challenges and team building activities.  Fans are invited to watch and cheer the boys on. 

10:15 a.m.—The action continues at the Stone Harbor Yacht Club on 83rd and Sunset for water challenges and more team building. 

12:00—Young Flyers Fans are invited to the Stone Harbor Elementary School playground at for a Hooked On Hockey clinic with Scott Laughton, Samuel Morin and myself. 

1:15 - 2:30 p.m.—Prospects will be at the Stone Harbor Elementary School for a meet and greet autograph session. There is a nominal fee for this fund raising event which includes a team picture of the prospects for autographs.

3:00 p.m.—This year, there is a new twist on a way in which Flyers Fans can get in on the fun and the fund-raising. In place of the traditional charity softball game, the Flyers Prospects will be challenging fans to 4-on-4 beach volleyball. The minimum bid to play is $500. Proceeds from this event always stay local.

Participating teams will:
1. play in a Semi-Round Robin Tournament against Flyers prospects
2. receive a Trial On The Isle team signed volleyball
3. receive 4 tickets for the Post-Trial On The Isle Prospects dinner at the Yacht Club
4  receive 4 tickets to a Flyers Pre-Season game.
5. receive media coverage

If you would like to bid on this great event, e-mail your bid to: Trialontheisle@gmail.com

Remember, this is first come, first serve! (No pun intended!)  Don't delay!
