NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Training camp is the best time for fans to get an up-close look at the current Tennessee Titans. It is the only time of the year when practice is open to the public. A total of 17 practices are scheduled for fans to watch from July 31 through Aug. 23. For more information on Titans training camp, fans can call the team's training camp hotline at (615) 565-4190 or log on to the team's official website, TitansOnline.com.
FAN ADMISSION AND PARKING: Admission to practice and parking for fans is free at Baptist Sports Park. Fans attending training camp can park directly across the street from Baptist Sports Park in the CVS/Caremark corporate offices at 445 Great Circle Road.
DIRECTIONS TO TRAINING CAMP PARKING
● From Interstate 65 in downtown Nashville, take Exit 85 (Rosa Parks Boulevard) North.
● Proceed on Rosa Parks Boulevard and turn right on Athens Way.
● Turn left on Great Circle Road.
● Security officials will direct fans to the parking lot on the right and assist crossing the street into Baptist Sports Park.
ACCESS: At the practice facility, fans are permitted to walk along and watch from the outside perimeter of the three outdoor practice fields. Gates to the practice field generally open 15 minutes prior to the scheduled practice. Fans should be prepared to stand during practice, as bleacher seating is very limited. Workouts inside the practice "bubble" are closed to the public.
PRACTICE TIMES: Typical start times for training camp are 3:00-3:45 p.m. and 6:15-6:30 p.m. Other practice times are scattered throughout the camp schedule, including a 2:00 p.m. practice at LP Field on Saturday, Aug. 6. A complete schedule with exact dates and times appears on Page 3 of this
AUTOGRAPHS: Every player on the Titans roster will take part in a free autograph session after practice at least once during training camp. Generally, three to five players are assigned to the autograph schedule each day, and usually the players sign autographs along the sideline of the field nearest to the fan entrance. Additional players may choose to sign autographs at their discretion. The players' time is limited, however, and fans are not guaranteed to receive autographs. A tentative autograph schedule is released approximately one week in advance at TitansOnline.com and through various media outlets. The first week's schedule appears on Page 3 of this release. The autograph schedule is subject to change without notice.
DRESS APPROPRIATELY: Fans should dress appropriately for the heat of Middle Tennessee. Training camp practices often take place during the hottest portions of the day, and there are very few shaded areas overlooking the practice fields at Baptist Sports Park.
ACCESS TO PRACTICE IS ON A FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED BASIS: Although over-crowding is rare at training camp practices, there is a limit to the number of fans who can safely attend practices. Fans arriving first will be given first priority.
MERCHANDISE AND CONCESSIONS: A merchandise tent will be open during all practices, selling a variety of Titans goods and apparel. The merchandise tent will be located at the entrance to the practice field. Additionally, a concession stand selling ice cold Coca-Cola products will be open during all practices. Fans are permitted to bring their own refreshments. However, tobacco products and alcoholic beverages are strictly prohibited.
VIDEO CAMERAS PROHIBITED: Fans are not permitted to use video cameras during training camp practices and are asked to not bring them onto the premises. Video features on cellular devices are also prohibited from being used. However, "still" photography cameras are permitted.
WEATHER CONDITIONS: The safety of fans and players is the organization's top priority during training camp practices. If inclement weather, particularly lightening, is moving into the area, practice may be moved to the team's indoor practice "bubble," where fans are not permitted due to space restrictions. Practice also is subject to be moved indoors due to extreme heat conditions. Upon inclement weather, fans may be asked to depart the practice facility.
