Some More Training Camp Details

What will training camp at Lincoln Financial Field look like? The Eagles provided some details Thursday.

Each of the five practices are expected to start at 12:30 (time on August 17  may change to 8:15 am if Phillies game gets flexed).  Beginning at 10:30 am in the HeadHouse Plaza, there will be music, face-painting artists, appearances from SWOOP, and Eagles Cheerleader entertainment.

After each practice, all fans ages 14-and-under will have the opportunity to catch a pass on the field from Eagles alumni. Also, every fan entering Lincoln Financial Field will receive a scratch-off ticket. Those who receive “winning” tickets will have a chance to get player autographs after practice.

“Our goal is to have a fun atmosphere for fans as they get an up-close look at the team,” said Eagles President Don Smolenski.

Here is a look at the training camp schedule:

Sunday, July 28 – Alumni Day

The Eagles will recognize alumni players on the field prior to practice. In addition, some of the many honored players will begin signing autographs for fans in the HeadHouse Plaza at 10:30 am.

Monday, August 5 – Military Appreciation Day

The Eagles will honor members from all four branches of the military on the field prior to practice.

      As if the fireman would relinquish that honor lol:
      Canadian Fireman: “Over my dead body”
      Foles: “If only he fought the Dline like he fought fires, I would have had enough time so that Vick wouldn’t be here right now…Sigh”

    Do fans get smoothies? Can sleep monitors be raffled?

    • Andy

      Those sleep monitors need to be retrofitted with speedometers.

    Screw your fans over day………….almost every day with the closed practices. This is the worst change of the Kelly admin! The cutting out of the fans from training camp is totally classless.

      really, who cares. 16 days plus hopefully 3/4 more is all that matters to me. just dont be horrible violent felons or locker room cancers. this peters deal, while extremely stupid, is blip on my radar. as long as he didnt hurt his achilles pushing down hard on gas pedal, couldnt care less.

        I swear I wish every single practice in this city was closed to fans and the irresponsible gossipy media…So Jealous of the patriots and the way they go about there business….I want what’s best for the Team, and sorry but the media just trying to stir shit up so that they can get a quote, is not what’s best for their team. It’s like the Eagles have to give access to a bunch of shitheads who are more tabloid then actual journalists. The Eagles should do whatever gives them the best chance to win..and I don’t see how having to deal with our ridiculous media is what’s best for the team. I would love to know everything that happens every single day, but if the media can’t find a way to do there job without harassing players every single day, asking them the same exact things that they either don’t know the answer to, or clearly aren’t allowed to reveal the answer to then I would rather be in the dark.
        I’m not Sure where fans got this sense of entitlement about the offseason, and practice..The only thing the Eagles owe us is quality play on Sunday and answering questions after the game…everything else is a bonus…I wish we had like a GreenBay market

          I went to 1 practice last year in Lehigh, I’ll probably go to more in Philly. I wouldn’t get all jacked up about the media, once there is actual game film the fans won’t want articles on everything DeSean Jackson has ever said, and they’ll want stories about the game. It’s probably tough to do their job when the next football thing happens on July 22. Besides, fans aren’t that stupid , they know Kelly has always run his team where everyone competes, and unlike the media, they know that eventually Kelly will rid himself of all the whiners in that locker room with full support of the FO. Let them say what they want, they went 4-12, so they have no goodwill built up with the fans anyway.

      Stupid comment, you are not the coach and do not understand Coach Kelly. Do you want a winner?
      Hey, it’s practice.

    “Monday, August 5 – Military Appreciation Day”

    Are the Eagles not honoring the fifth branch of the military? That’s messed up.

    • Richard Colton

      They’re exempting the Air Force as an apology to fans for Chad Hall
