Eagles host final tryouts next week at Big Bear

The new Soo Eagles will hold their final training/tryout camps from August 24-26 at the Big Bear Arena in Sault Ste Marie.

Tryout times are August 24 - 8:45 am-10:05 am, 1:15pm-2:35pm; August 25 - 9:15am-10:35am, 3:15pm-4:35pm; August 26 - 9:15am-10:35am, 3:15pm-4:35pm.

The Eagles currently have 19 players committed to the new organization, so camp tryouts should be very intense as players compete for limited team positions.

The Eagles will begin their exhibition games with a back-to-back series against the Alpena IceDiggers of the NAHL. They will host the Icediggers at Pullar Stadium on Friday, September 5 with a 7 p.m. start time. They will then play the IceDiggers in Alpena the following night at 7 p.m.

The team has also finalized their new jersey designs as well as mounting an aggressive marketing campaign trying to establish a hometown fan base. The Eagles offer the lowest ticket prices in the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League at only $6 per game, as well offering season tickets at the incredible cost of $125 for 25 home games.

Central Savings Bank has stepped up to offer sponsorship and fans can purchase season tickets using credit cards or bank cards at any Central Savings Bank location. The Eagles are also offering an new "Super Fan Season Ticket" package that lets fans order an official Soo game jersey and hat with their ticket purchase. For $250, true fans can get a game jersey customized with their choice of number and their name on the back.
