SIX NATIONS — The five-time Mann Cup champion Six Nations Pro-Fit Chiefs are looking for that next player or goalie that could step into the lineup alongside the likes of Cody Jamieson, Randy Staats, Sid Smith and Brandon Miller.
General Manager Duane Jacobs has announced a free agent camp for those players who think they have what it takes to pull on a Chiefs jersey.
“We are excited to offer a free agent camp for those undrafted and free agent players in Ontario,” Jacobs said. “Every year there are over 200 players going overage in Ontario. The landscape in Major Series Lacrosse is ever changing and this year is no different, with the overlap of the NLL season and the year-round demand on players. We feel it’s necessary to hold this camp as we will need players short and long term. We are always looking for talent and having this open camp allows us to leave no stone unturned.”
Camp dates at the Iroquois Lacrosse Arena are Saturday April 9, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, April 10, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Saturday, April 16, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Cost per player is $25.
To be eligible players must be free agents and not the property of an MSL team. The Chiefs top brass hope look over around 40 runners and six goalie for the camp as they assemble a powerful 2016 team ready to take back the Mann Cup they lost to the Victoria Shamrocks last season after the Chiefs won back-to-back Cups in 2013 and 2014.
