Steelers Expected To Report To Training Camp July 26th

Though the official schedule still won’t be released for another month, it appears the Pittsburgh Steelers will report to St. Vincent College for training camp on Wednesday, July 26th.

In a Q&A session with fans on Steelers’ Nation Unite, Kevin Colbert said the team will begin camp 15 days prior to their first preseason game. That first game falls on August 11th against the New York Giants. Last year, the team reported 16 days prior to their first game with the first practice obviously kicking off the following day.

This year, that first day of practice should be on Thursday, July 27th. Each practice will begin at 2:55 PM with the exception of the Friday Night one at Latrobe High School at 7 PM.

Each practice at SVC is open to the public and free. The night practice is open to everyone with a ticket at the gate. The Steelers have been in Latrobe since 1966. If you’ve never made the trip out there, put it on the bucket list. Well worth it for an atmosphere most teams don’t give their fans (or charge absurd amounts for, looking at you Dan Snyder).

Of course, we’ll be there every single day, offering up daily reports on everything that happens during practice. We’ll also have a daily podcast with Dave Bryan to recap things as well. We’ll also have our Depot photographer, Tim Rice, snapping some awesome pictures to help capture the day.

It’s by far my favorite time of year and I can’t wait to experience camp with all you guys. All the stands between that is one long, long summer.

    I got to go to camp a number of years ago for a day. It was an awesome experience to see the guys in action. I remember it was the year that AB had a break out season, but had just been a rookie who got very few snaps the year before (aside from the big reception against the Ravens in the playoffs). I couldn’t believe how twitchy he was in person. I kept thinking, “Wow, this kid Antonio Brown looks like he could be good!” LOL Little did I know! I can also remember being struck by the athleticism of Lawrence Timmons in his prime. I stood and watched the LBs cover the RBs and TEs drill for a good half hour. I can remember the RBs torching Larry Foote over and over again. But Timmons was staying stride for stride with them all.

    I haven’t been able to make it back to camp since, but I’ve really enjoyed your coverage over the past few years. I can’t wait to get all the break downs and observations this year again. Thanks for your good work!

    I think people need to be reminded that on more than one occasion, Vdub, was running stride for stride with Bell, down the sidelines at last years camp.
