Soul to Hold Training Camp at NovaCare Complex
PHILADELPHIA (February 11, 2011) - The Philadelphia Soul announce that their first practice will be on Saturday, February 19 at the Philadelphia Eagles' NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia. The team will use the facility for training camp practices through the beginning of March.
"The support we have received from the entire Philadelphia Eagles' organization has been tremendous," said Soul co-majority owner and current ESPN Monday Night Football broadcaster, Ron Jaworski. "The NovaCare Complex is a high-quality facility, and we can't thank the Eagles enough for their continued efforts to assist us as we make our return and bring the championship back to Philadelphia."
The Soul used the practice complex during their two open tryouts for this season, on October 30 and January 29. The open tryouts hosted a total of 550 participants - the most by any team in the AFL heading into the 2011 season.
The Eagles first started using the NovaCare Complex in the spring of 2001 as their new practice facility. Although the Soul will just be using the field, the state-of-the-art facility includes an 8,000 square-foot weight room that overlooks the practice fields, a 189-seat auditorium, meeting rooms, players' lounge, and locker rooms to accommodate the athletes.
