The women entered the Wells Fargo Center as a Flyer would, entering the hallway and signing a contract on the spot. Next, they headed into the locker room, briefed by Flyers Equipment Managers Derek Settlemyre and Harry Bricker about the life of a Flyer and their daily duties. The Junior Flyers girls team was featured in the shot-on-goal and stick handling events on the ice. The Sports Medicine and Nutrition panel with Jim McCrossin was all about enhancing the players during rehab and breakthrough science for concussion protocol. The Women in Sports Panel featured Flyers front office executives Cindy Stutman, Senior VP, Business Operations; Linda Mantai, VP, Flyers Charities; Sarah Schwab, Marketing Director; and Christine Mina, Digital Media Manager. Last, but not least, was a panel with a few of the coaches and their wives.
The women participating had a great time meeting many of the faces from the organization.
