The Atlanta Falcons unveiled their upcoming slate of training camp practices, including those open to the public. That means you can watch the Falcons stretch and catch passes for free. Bring sunscreen and lots of water, because the fan area gets hot.

On July 27, 28 and 30, and August 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8, the team will hold open practices for the public.

Practices are planned to start at 9:20 a.m., and the gates for attending will open at 8:20 a.m., though, of course, times may vary. And, practices are weather permitting. Fans don’t get to go into the indoor practice facility.

The team will have closed practices on July 31, and Aug. 5, 9 and 11. They open the preseason on the road against the New York Jets on Aug. 10.

The team says “2018 AT&T Training Camp fan experience information regarding parking, policies, directions, etc. coming soon.”

And, hey, if you want to read a quote from Dan Quinn about the upcoming training camp the team provided, we won’t keep it from you.

“I told the team now there’s a break, [prepare your] heart, mind, body, soul to get ready,” Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said after the team’s final minicamp practice. “Base camp is over. We threw ourselves a good base camp. We’re ready, we’ve got our stuff together. Now it’s a matter of in these five weeks really putting out from a conditioning standpoint so when you come back here, we 100 percent get to see the best version of you. I imagine that this camp will look faster and more complete in a lot of respects.”

If you’re planning on stopping by training camp that week, be sure to let folks know in the comments!
