Rain or Shine, see which prospects will be competing with and against each other in Stone Harbor

YACHT CLUB & BEACH COMPETITION COMPLETE

The 2014 Trial on the Isle is in the books and was once again a smashing success. Prospects interacted a little more than usual as they combined to forms teams in the afternoon volleyball session with proceeds going to charity.

A quick look at some of the action on the beach in the first leg of Trial on the Isle...

The team of Merrick Madsen, Nick Luukko, Robert Hagg and Maxim Lamarche was the best of the beach group, coming in at a time of 26:42.

It was a dead-heat for second-place (two groups below) as Mark Friedman, Steven Delisle, Scott Laughton and Oskar Lindblom (28:14) just edged out the team of Petr Straka, Nicolas Aubel-Kubel, Sam Morin and Travis Sanheim (28:23).

The group now heads to the docks to begin the second phase at the Stone Harbor Yacht Club.

After nine hours on the ice, and countless more off it, Flyers prospects are getting a true taste of what it means and what it takes to be a professional hockey player.

Day 4 of Camp wrapped up after their usual second session of the day late in the afternoon and a full night's rest is becoming increasing valuable, but none more so than last night as wake up calls were most likely set for around 6 a.m. to kick off the team's annual Trial on the Isle for some conditioning, teamwork and friendly competition.

The uniqueness of the event lies not only with the bonding that the prospects will get to do with each other, but also with the packs of Flyers fans who get an even more up-close look at the future of the Flyers.

The bus is slated to depart from the Flyers practice facility in Voorhees, NJ approximately 7 a.m.

When they arrive over an hour later in Stone Harbor, here's what the makeup of each team competing against each other that the fans will get to see through the first two legs of the day.

* Note, the team's will have a different look to them for the final part - the Flyers/Utz Beach Volleyball Blast tournament.
