Fans are invited to attend a select number of practices during the camp, all free of charge. Once again this year the Titans will conduct all training camp practices at Baptist Sports Park, where the vast majority of the team’s camps have been conducted since the team moved to Tennessee in 1997. The Titans held camp at Tennessee State University from 1997-98, Baptist Sports Park’s Bellevue location in 1999 and their current facility in Nashville’s MetroCenter since 2000. In 2006, they spent two weeks on campus at Austin Peay University in Clarksville, Tenn., before finishing their training at Baptist Sports Park.
Located just five minutes from downtown Nashville, Baptist Sports Park is located at 460 Great Circle Rd.
PRACTICE TIMES: Training camp practices typically begin at 8:30 a.m. and/or 3:30 p.m. Three traditional “two-a-days” are scheduled, giving fans an opportunity to see the team in action during the morning and afternoon hours on the same day, an ideal arrangement for out-of-town fans seeking to watch a maximum amount of practice in a brief period of time. A complete schedule with exact dates and times will be announced later this off-season.
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 or four 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. The players’ time is limited, however, and fans are not guaranteed to receive autographs. On days there are two practices open to the public, veteran players will sign autographs only following the second practice session, while rookies designated for that day will sign following both the morning and afternoon sessions. Additional players may choose to sign autographs at their discretion. The autograph schedule is released approximately one week in advance at titansonline. com and through various media outlets.
* Please note, 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 overcrowding 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. 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.
