The Vermont Voyageurs will be changing the Tryouts and Training camp schedule and adding more action to the weekend. The Boston Blazers and Sherbrooke Extreme will be in town on May 2nd and 3rd for a round robin of exhibition games against the Voyageurs. Immediately following the Voyageurs second session on Saturday afternoon, the Voyageurs and Extreme will play game 1 of the round robin. Face off for game 1 will be at 4PM. The Extreme will then faceoff against Boston at 7PM
Sunday May 3rd will feature the Voyageurs vs the Blazers at 11:30am. All games are open to the public with general admission tickets for $7. Concessions and Voyageurs merchandise will be available at the game.
Teams involved will feature some of the United States and Quebec's top indoor lacrosse players, with many Team USA hopefuls scattered throughout the rosters. The Boston Blazers are a club team from the Boston area run by Randy Fraser- a longtime NLL pro.
The Voyagers are returning most of their roster from last season, but will be selecting players from tryouts to fill out the rosters for Saturday & Sunday. "We are excited to host two talented squads during training camp," said Voyageurs part owner and GM Joe Evans. "It will give players we wouldn't normally be able to evaluate in a game situation a chance to show what they can do when it really matters. We hope the lacrosse community will come out and support their local team and hope to involve the kids. There will be a lot of great lacrosse to see over the 3 games."
