Portland Thunder announces 2015 Training Camp Schedule

Tuesday February 10, 2015

 PORTLAND – The Portland Thunder will open their second ever training camp on Friday, March 6 at the Oregon Soccer Center (17015 Southeast 82nd Drive, Clackamas, OR 97015) as they prepare for the upcoming 2015 AFL season.

“As a staff, we are excited to continue cultivating our relationships with the returning players, and establish connection with our rookies and new additions,” head coach Mike Hohensee stated. “Any time you begin a project, you are anxious to set an attitude or tone. This camp will help us do that, while getting the team to a position where we can interact and understand each phase of the game together.”

Players will report to the team offices on Wednesday, March 4. Physicals will be conducted at Sports Medicine Oregon the next day, followed by a headshot photo session and introductory meetings. Practices will begin at 8:00 AM on March 6 at the Oregon Soccer Center, with the first two practice sessions being held without pads. Pads will be introduced on March 8.

The Thunder will make one road trip during training camp, traveling to eastern Washington on Thursday, March 12, for workouts and scrimmages with the Spokane Shock. The practices in Spokane will be closed to the public.

The training camp roster consists of 35 players, plus invitees, who will compete for 24 spots on the opening roster. Final rosters must be turned into the Arena Football League office by 5:00 PM CT on Friday, March 20.

All training camp practices are open to the public, and media availability will begin at 11:00 AM on every practice day. Interested media and photographers may begin filing for appropriate credentialing on Thursday, February 4 via email (rboelke@portlandthunder.com) or through the Thunder website at portlandthunder.com/media/2015Credentials

The Thunder open the 2015 AFL season at home against the LA KISS on March 27.
