It may only be July, but football is in the air. The Eagles don't open training camp until next week, but the Philadelphia Passion is already hard at work.

Philly's entry in the Lingerie Football League held open tryouts at Bucksmont Indoor Sports Center in Hatfield, Pa. Monday night as coaches attempt to overhaul a roster that fell short of the playoffs in the team's inaugural season.

The Passion will once again play its home games at Sun National Bank Center in Trenton this season. Here's a look at the team's 2010-11 schedule:

*Baltimore Charm (Sun National Bank Arena, Trenton, NJ) - Sept. 17

*at Miami Caliente (FIU Stadium, Miami, FL) - October 15

*Orlando Fantasy (1st Mariner Arena, Baltimore, MD) - December 10

*at Tampa Breeze (St Pete Times Forum, Tampa, FL) - January 13
