(October 27, 2014)… The Rochester Knighthawks will open Training Camp the weekend of November 22-23 at the Unity Health System Total Sports Experience (TSE) in East Rochester.

“It will be nice to get going and have everyone in the same room again,” said Knighthawks Head Coach Mike Hasen. “I am looking forward to getting back to work with this group.”
