Gaiters football training camp gets underway
Bishop’s Gaiters football training camp is set to get underway Wednesday morning at Coulter Field, as preparations begin for the 60th consecutive football season at Bishop’s University.
Nearly 100 student-athletes reported to the Lennoxville campus yesterday, including 59 returnees from the 2010 squad that went 5-4 and fin- ished tied for third in the Quebec University Football League.
Tony Addona’s team is scheduled to practice each day from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Coulter Field for the next two weeks, before heading to Toronto to play the York Lions in a non-conference game on Saturday, August 27.
Practices are normally open to the public. (Note that times are subject to change, and fans are advised to check the Gaiters’ website and twitter account [@BishopsGaiters] for updates.)
The Gaiters start the regular season on Friday, September 2, as they visit the Sherbrooke Vert & Or.
