From Press Release
The Philadelphia Wings announced its final training camp schedule and exhibition contests in preparation of the upcoming 2014 NLL season.
The Wings will open their first weekend of main camp on Friday, November 22 and commence practice on Sunday, November 24. Four different practice sessions will be held over the three day period at Bucksmont Indoor Sports Center. All sessions are open to the public.
“We are eager to take another step towards the regular season and have the opportunity to take a look at our full squad as they practice together,” said Wings head coach Blane Harrison. “The coaches are looking forward to a competitive camp. We have a number of younger players looking to come in and make a statement about winning a spot on our club.”
The Wings have also set their preseason schedule with a full slate of exhibition scrimmages taking place in Buffalo, NY and Toronto, ON.
With the passing of the new CBA, teams are now permitted to carry a 20-man roster, and up to four practice players. All nine NLL teams will be required to submit their final 20-man rosters by Monday, December 16. Last year, teams could field a 23-man roster and up to three practice players.
Fans can catch their first glimpse of the 2014 Philadelphia Wings team at home as they host the Buffalo Bandits at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday, January 12, at 4 p.m.
