Fans interested in attending the Seattle Seahawks’ training camp practices this summer will be able to pre-register on the team’s website starting Monday at 10 a.m.
Open practices at the team’s Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton will be held from July 31 through Aug. 16, but will be available only to those who sign up in advance at seahawks.com.
The team will also host an open practice at Husky Stadium on Sunday, Aug 8 that will not require preregistration since the stadium has plenty of seating.
Registration for the VMAC practices will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis and fans 15 years or younger must be accompanied by an adult. A $5 transportation fee will be charged per person, as fans will be required to park at an off-site location and be shuttled to the VMAC before and after each practice.
This is the second year of open practices at the VMAC, which is located just off Exit 7 of Interstate 405 on the shore of Lake Washington.
Exact practice times will be listed on the team’s web site starting in mid-July. In addition to the action on the field, fans will be entertained with music and other family-friendly activities, with food and beverages also available.
The practices will be sponsored by Bing, which already has a corporate partnership with the Seahawks, who wear their logo on their practice jerseys year-round.
“In partnership with our friends at Bing, we are excited to host Seahawks fans for the second year in a row at VMAC,” said Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke. “Fans will enjoy the competitive atmosphere of Coach (Pete) Carroll’s practices, the energy among the players and coaches and one of the most beautiful settings in all the NFL.”
