Axemen training camp draws 6 nations
The full contact scrimmage will be played at 4pm on Saturday (May 7) at Hodges Stadium and will have full concessions and the always popular $1 beer. This event is included in the season ticket package and walk-up price will be $5. (Kids 12 and under FREE)
Gates will open at 3.30pm.
The scrimmage is played in 4 x 15 minute quarters to allow the coaching staff to make multiple changes in positions and to ensure that there is no risk of exhaustion to the players.
“This is the best event for our new fans to come an experience Rugby League,” said co-founder Drew Slover. “There are plenty of veteran fans who are great at explaining the game to new comers and with the extra breaks in play, it allows a little more time for the game-day staff to explain what is happening on the field.”
The Axe Maiden Cheerleaders will also perform at this game to finalize their routines and fine tune any needs before the full season gets under way.
Following the scrimmage, all the fans and general public is invited to join the players and cheerleaders at Time Out Sports Grill to meet all the players who will become the 2011 Firehouse Subs Jacksonville Axemen.
