The third day will begin with another match, this time at the FelicianCollege in Rutherford, New Jersey. Following the game the group will get to travel to Hoboken, wherein there will be great photo opportunities of Staten Island and New York City itself. The group will travel into the heart of New York City in the evening for dinner, before heading back to New Jersey that night in preparation for another packed schedule to follow in the morning.
The fourth day will be packed full of tournament games. After the games the group will depart for the Holiday Inn Woodbridge before a relaxing evening by the pool. On the fifth and final day the group will travel back to the city for a short tour, while also specifically visiting The Staten Island Memorial.
