Jaguars 2006 Training Camp Information and Schedule

The Jacksonville Jaguars' 2006 training camp will begin on Friday, July 28 when all 85 players on the team's roster are scheduled to report. The first practice session will take place on Saturday, July 29 at 10:15 a.m. on the practice fields northwest of Alltel Stadium. Training camp will be open to the public and media for viewing through August 11. Training camp will feature 23 practice sessions over two weeks before the start of the Jaguars' preseason on August 12. There is no admission charge for training camp, and parking will be available in the parking lots surrounding the stadium. Following is more specific information regarding the Jaguars' 2006 training camp: TRAINING CAMP LOCATION: All training camp activities will take place at the Jaguars' facilities at Alltel Stadium. The media workroom inside Gate 1, which is available during the regular season, will serve as the media workroom throughout training camp. All practice sessions will be on the three practice fields at the northwest corner of the stadium. Media covering training camp are advised to park in stadium lots N or J, which are located at the West and Southwest sides of the stadium (near Gate 1) and are nearest to the media workroom and the practice fields. The entrance to the media workroom is adjacent to Gate 1. The entrance to the Jaguars' administrative offices is adjacent to the Crown Royal Touchdown Club entrance on the stadium's West side. The team lockerroom and meeting rooms will be off-limits to the media throughout training camp, as will the training room and weight room. ACCESS/INTERVIEWS: Accredited media may observe the practice sessions from anywhere around the perimeter of the three practice fields, although some areas may be restricted due to the location of drills. No one is allowed in-between the three practice fields or in the medical/training shed. Media is reminded that use of cell phones is prohibited while on the practice fields, and sitting during practices is not allowed. Head coach Jack Del Rio will be available to the media for group interviews every other day immediately following the morning practice session during training camp (see schedule, which follows), and as needed by request. Interviews with assistant coaches and players may also be conducted following the morning practices. All requests for interviews with assistant coaches must go through the Jaguars communications department. All reporters needing to arrange interviews — with players, coaches or other staff — should do so through the Jaguars' communications representatives: Ryan Robinson, Hunter Robinson, Alisa Abbott and Dan Edwards. All player interviews will be arranged to take place either as the players leave the practice fields or in the media workroom at the stadium. CREDENTIALS: Training camp credentials will be issued to all accredited media needing access inside the practice field fence. No one will be granted access to the practice fields without proper credentials. Co-workers, associates, friends and guests will not be given credentials. Access to the practice fields during practice, and to the media workroom, is for media representatives specifically covering training camp. Please call Alisa Abbott at (904) 633-6590 for training camp credentials or fax your request on letterhead to (904) 633-6055. Also, if your organization has not yet requested game credentials for the 2006 home games, your request should be submitted on letterhead to Dan Edwards by mail, e-mail or fax. IMPORTANT NUMBERS

FAN GUIDELINES: As stated earlier, training camp practice sessions will be open for viewing by the public from Saturday, July 29 through Thursday, August 11. Bleacher seating, which will accommodate approximately 2,250 people, will be provided inside the fence at the practice fields. Restroom facilities and concession stands will also be provided. Concession stands will include food and beverages as well as Jaguars merchandise, including training-camp-specific T-shirts and caps. The Jaguars' 2006 Media Guide will also be available for $10. Fans should park in the Lots M and N on the west side of the stadium. For fans attending practice sessions, video cameras are strictly prohibited, as well as horns, whistles and other noisemakers. Still cameras are allowed. Fans wishing to get autographs are asked to do so after each practice session, outside the practice field fence as the players return to the lockerroom. Because of the full schedule during training camp, it is not possible to schedule autograph or photo sessions. Groups wishing to visit training camp do not need to make special arrangements; they may watch practice from the bleachers.
