The Washington Redskins, in partnership with the city of Richmond, Bon Secours Virginia Health System and the Virginia governor’s office, announced this week their 2017 training camp schedule.

The camp will be open to the public July 27 through Aug. 13 in Richmond, Va.

The schedule features 23 public on-field sessions available to fans, highlighted by Fan Appreciation Day on Saturday, Aug. 5.

Admission is free, with online registration set to open to fans in early June. Available parking lots, provided by the city, will be announced closer to camp.

Between practice sessions, fans will have the opportunity to meet Redskins alumni and cheerleaders, participate in various family-friendly activities and purchase Redskins merchandise at the Redskins Team Store retail tent. The team will host special themed days at the Training Center, off-site events, and other unique fan experiences throughout camp.

Following practice, Redskins players and coaches will be available to sign autographs and take pictures, schedules permitting. All scheduled dates and practice times are subject to change.

The $10 million state-of-the-art training center debuted in 2013 and features two full-size natural grass fields, a drill field, spectator areas, locker rooms and a training room. Bon Secours Virginia Health System is the main tenant of Training Center, which serves as a valuable year-round resource for the community when camp is not in session. A full-service sports medicine rehabilitation and primary care practice are provided throughout the year in addition to men’s health, fitness and educational programs.

The City of Richmond in partnership with SMG manages year-round events at the venue. The fields are available for youth programming, tournaments and other events that generate revenue and exposure for the City of Richmond throughout the year.

During the team’s stay in Richmond and throughout the 2016 calendar year, the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation youth programs have impacted more than 14,000 children in the Richmond community.

Events and activities included a Mom’s Football 101 Clinic, a $58,000 sports equipment donation to local nonprofits, expansion of the 2016-2017 Redskins Read Program, Coaches in the Classroom and more.
