The team is led by Casey Powell, a former three-time All-America for Syracuse University.

The Titans are scheduled to play at the Prudential Center on Jan. 10 against Boston; Feb. 8 against Chicago; March 14 against Calgary; April 4 against Philadelphia and April 11 against Buffalo.

The team also plans to provide instruction and equipment to local schools as part of a community outreach project.
