After a long and productive off-season, it was finally time to open training camp. It was a great day for Erie Explosion football as our coaches, players, and staff gathered at the Downtown Avalon Hotel for meetings and physicals. Our team will take the field for the first practice of training camp on Saturday March 5th 2011 at Edinboro University. We have an excellent group of talented dynamic athletes assembled who are looking forward to working hard to bring the SIFL Championship to Erie in 2011. The local Erie Media provided excellent coverage to the start of training camp as we were featured on JetTV, WICU, and the Erie Times News, among others. We now begin our journey over the next two weeks to shape our roster leading up to our game vs. the Harrisburg Stampede on March 20th.
