Pre season training.
A chance for the rookies to show the coaches what they've got to add to the team.
A chance for the veterans to show the coaches that they've still got and haven't been too lazy in the off season.
And now for the two teams based on the south coast, its a chance to compete for the title of the Dorset Bowl champions.
This year is the first year that the two teams, the Bobcats and the Jurassic Coast Raptors will compete for bragging rights, as well as the chance to head into the season with a manful victory under their belts.
The Bobcats will be favourites heading into the game with home field advantage and a more experienced roster but will not look to take the Raptors lightly.
Kick off is at 12:30 at Chapel Gate
