After a fruitful first weekend of Training Camp on Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Field at Infinite Energy Arena, the Georgia Swarm will hold its final weekend of Training Camp at the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre (TRAC) in Oakville, Ontario.
Players will meet for a late practice on Friday night, hold an all-day session on Saturday, and play the Rochester Knighthawks in a preseason exhibition game on Sunday.
Following the Swarm’s first-ever Training Camp and open practice in Georgia, the Swarm front office made two roster moves. The team released forward Nolan Apers (Lehigh University, No. 61 overall) and transition player Zach Tomkinson.
Georgia will have to make more cuts after Training Camp concludes. The team will submit its 21-man Active Roster and four-player Practice Squad to the NLL by 1 p.m. ET on Monday, Dec. 10.
Georgia opens its 2018-19 season against the New England Black Wolves on Saturday, Dec. 15. Faceoff is set for 7:05 p.m. ET. The Swarm will be celebrating Star Wars Night presented by Peachtree Orthopedics, and players will wear special Star Wars themed jerseys and shorts.
Following the game, fans will have the opportunity to bid on game-used, autographed Star Wars uniforms. Select proceeds from the uniform auction will benefit the Rally Foundation.
Early-arriving fans will receive light-up Bamstix and have the opportunity to mingle with several dozen Star Wars characters in the 501st Legion, Georgia Garrison throughout the game. Tickets start at just $25, and fans can purchase tickets by visiting GeorgiaSwarm.com/StarWars or calling 844-4-GASWARM.
