Toronto – The 2014 Toronto Rock will begin to take shape when the team holds their Rookie and Free Agent Camp on November 23rd and 24th at the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre in Oakville, ON. The following weekend, the team will open their main training camp on November 30th.
The Rock have also set their preseason schedule with a full slate of exhibition scrimmages taking place at the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre.
On Saturday, December 7th Toronto will host the Colorado Mammoth followed by a matchup against the Rochester Knighthawks on Saturday, December 14th. The preseason calendar wraps up on Saturday, December 21st when the Rock face the Philadelphia Wings. All three games are 7pm start times and the scrimmages are open to the public with no charge for admission.
Teams will have very little time to make decisions this year as the roster deadline is Monday, December 16th.
“With the season opening a week earlier than usual our training camp timeline is accelerated,” said Rock GM Terry Sanderson. “The active roster decreasing to just 20 players will make this the most competitive training camp in this franchise’s history.”
The club has been busy re-signing players over the last couple of weeks following the NLL and the PLPA coming to an agreement on a new 7-year CBA. The Rock have signed 10 players in total to this point and have placed the franchise player tag on captain Colin Doyle which prevents him from entering the unrestricted free agent market.
