ABOUT THE CHALLENGE

The Bernie Parent Fishing Challenge is a family-friendly, charitable fishing competition created and hosted by NHL Legend Bernie Parent. The Challenge, which is open to fishing aficionados of every level, combines Bernie’s passion for fishing with his enduring dedication to the Philadelphia Flyers community.

The 2021 Fishing Challenge merges the annual In-Shore Fishing event at Canyon Club Resort Marina in Cape May, NJ with a virtual tournament format. Anglers can compete in freshwater, saltwater, in-shore, and off-shore options during a two-week competition, culminating in a day-of fishing event and poolside celebration down the shore on August 9th.

All Proceeds Benefit Snider Hockey! Proceeds of the Fishing Challenge benefit the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation – an organization that provides hockey, education, life skills, and academic scholarship programming to inner-city Philadelphia and Camden students at no cost. 100% of event proceeds are donated to Snider Hockey. Prior to his passing, Ed Snider had the foresight to create an additional foundation that allows Snider Hockey to continue the policy of matching every dollar received 2:1 – thereby tripling your impact on our deserving young people.
