Preparation has begun for the 2016 Canada West men's soccer season for the University of Saskatchewan Huskies.

Fall training camp begins today on Field 7 in PotashCorp Park. The camp will feature 15 returning athletes and nine first-year players.

All fans, supporters and alumni are invited to attend any of the practices during the camp that runs August 8 to August 29. 

"We have a young group of players who are excited to continue and build on the Huskie soccer tradition," said head coach Bryce Chapman. "Camp will be process where we need to bring this group together collectively, learn from each other and start to find our identity."

The Huskies begin the Canada West season on the road against the Calgary Dinos and Mount Royal Cougars on August 31 and September 1.

Saskatchewan returns home to host the MacEwan Griffins on September 9, followed by a rematch of the 2014 Canada West final against the Alberta Golden Bears on September 11. The weekend features the inaugural Bateman Cup, a celebration to honour the history of men's soccer at the University of Saskatchewan. All Huskie soccer matches are played on Field 7 in PotashCorp Park.
