The schedule changes for night practices.

Daily updates regarding the Steelers practice schedule will be available on this page. Please be sure to check the schedule on a regular basis for any changes.

Please keep in mind that there might be changes to the practice schedule or cancellation of practice because of weather conditions. Unfortunately sometimes those changes occur shortly before practice is scheduled to take place and we are unable to announce the change.

No problem. I've been going the last 3 years now. I'm hoping to go the 1st day...even though this yr its on a Sat which means a TON of people...i was hoping day 1 would be a weekday. Also the Friday Night practice i will be going to...if you never have gone to it...and can...i would recommend it. Its like $3 to get in (goes to the school), and ALL players must sign autographs (for like 15-20 min)...refreshments/food is sold and is reasonable...its just a great experience. Other than that (and the last day of camp) i dunno when i'll be going!

Thanks for the information - I've been waiting for the schedule to come out. I talked my wife into taking the kids and having a "mini-vacation" maybe the first week of August.
We're lifetime Steelers fans, but we've never been to a training camp. If anyone can offer any pointers, it would be much appreciated.
We're hoping to go sometime during the week to (hopfully) avoid the bigger crowds.
Thanks! Go Stillers!
