“We greatly appreciate the support of our fans and the impact they have on our winning games,” Lions owner Joshua Blair said in a statement. “I know our fans give our players a boost as they put in the hard work that it takes to prepare for the season. Training camp is a special opportunity for our fans to get a unique view of the coaches and players.”
Camp attendees can park behind the visiting team locker rooms at Garrett Harrison Stadium located opposite the press box.
Dates and times are subject to change, and any practice session moved indoors because of inclement weather is closed to the public.
The Lions open the season with defending NAL Champion Jacksonville Sharks on April 17th at home. “This is a huge game right out the blocks and we start the season off with a bye which gives us an advantage on personnel.
