The Ticats like Black and Gold day so much they've decided to do it three times this year.
The team will hit the field Ivor Wynne Stadium this Saturday at 3:15 p.m for the first intra-squad session before travelling to Burlington on June 16 and St. Catharines on June 23.
Head coach coach George Cortez says the team will run approximately 60 plays as it prepares for its first pre-season game next Wednesday, simulating various game situations involving the offence, defence and special teams.
“If you want to come out and see some football, it's something good to see but it won't be like watching a game,? Cortez said.
There will be inflatable games for kids as well as food and merchandise available for purchase, though there will be no player autograph session. Fans are asked to enter the stadium via the gate at the corner of Beechwood Avenue and Balsam Avenue North and watch the practice from the north stands. Gates open at 2:30 p.m.
The team will travel to Nelson high school in Burlington on June 16 – there will be an autograph session that day – and to Kiwanis field in St. Catharines on June 23.
