Steelers Training Camp 2005: Things every fan needs to know
 
Steelers Training Camp 2005: Things every fan needs to know
Sunday, July 31, 2005
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Kickoff: Camp opens for all players today when they must report by 6 p.m., but they won't practice until Tuesday. The players will take the field for the first time tomorrow for their annual running test. The last open practice of camp is the afternoon of Aug. 24.

Where: St. Vincent College, Route 30, Latrobe. It's the Steelers' 39th summer at the school

Getting there: See map at right. From Pittsburgh, take the Parkway East to the Monroeville entrance on the Turnpike. Go east to the Irwin exchange. Take Route 30 East about 15 miles to the St. Vincent College sign on your left. Turn left on Fraser Purchase Road, and the campus is one mile away. From Route 70, exit at New Stanton and take 119 North to Route 30, then head east. By air, the Arnold Palmer Regional Airport is near the campus. By rail, Amtrak (800-872-7245) offers daily scheduled passenger service with stops in Latrobe.

Parking: There's plenty of free parking in the large paved and grass lots across Fraser Purchase Road from the main entrance to St. Vincent College.

Practices: They are open to the public only in the afternoon, normally between 3 and 5 p.m. All practices are held at St. Vincent College except one night practice at Memorial Stadium in Latrobe at 7 p.m. Aug. 10. That practice will begin following a 15-minute autograph session that starts at 6:45. Weather and unforeseen circumstances can alter the schedule, particularly if there is a heavy rain, when Bill Cowher might elect to hold practice indoors, which are closed to the public.

Getting around: Campus opens to fans 90 minutes before the start of an open practice. There are restricted areas. An information booth is located near the field, and campus security can answer questions.

Regular fans memorize players numbers and position on the depth chart.

Steeler fans memorize dorm room numbers and roommates at training camp.

Can never have enough football.
