Default Raptors Will Hold Training Camp In Ottawa

So it would appear as though its official now that Ottawa and Carleton University will host the Raptors traning camp this fall. It was a rumour a couple weeks ago, but appears to be a done deal now.

According to a report in the Ottawa Sun, the Toronto Raptors are preparing to hold their 2008-09 training camp at Carleton University. Sources confirmed that the deal is pending finalization between the Raptors and the school.

This will be the second time the Raptors have visited Ottawa. The team held a pre-season game at Scotiabank in 1994.

Toronto has made a habit of rotating the team's training camp. Last season, the Raptors travelled to Europe and held camp in Italy and Spain. In the past, the Raptors have visited other Ontario locations in St. Catharines and Waterloo.
