The Charlotte Checkers today announced dates and times for the team’s 2017 training camp that begins Monday, Sept. 25, at 10 a.m.
For the first time since the team moved back to the facility for the 2015-16 season, all training camp practices will be held at Bojangles' Coliseum. A full daily schedule, subject to change, can be found below. All practices are open to media, while the sessions on Wednesday, Sept. 27, and Wednesday, Oct. 4, will be open to the public. Those planning to attend one of the two open skates should check this page and the Checkers' social media accounts for potential updates that may occur.
At the conclusion of the camp's first weekend and exactly one week before their regular season begins in Hartford on Oct. 6, the Checkers will play a pair of preseason games, also on the road, against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms on Sept. 29 and 30. The team plays its first two home games at Bojangles' Coliseum against the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on Oct. 13 and 14.
