As they do every year around this time, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released the official dates, start times and availabilities for their upcoming training camp practices.
The practices in orange are ones that will be open to the public. Those dates are July 28, 29, 30, and August 2, 4, 5, 7, 9, 19, 20, 22, 23, 24. Additionally, the Bucs are going to have two joint practices with the Jaguars in Jacksonville on August 14 and 15, both are expected to be open to the public, as well.
As was the case last year, the team will have their practices early in the morning to avoid the Florida heat as best they can. Almost all of the practices are scheduled to start at at 8:45 a.m., which means they’ll likely conclude around 10:30-10:45 a.m.

I don’t currently live in the state of Florida, and I have never been to a practice before, so forgive me if this is a stupid question. Are the open practices free to the public?
As always, parking will be free of charge and no tickets will be required to visit the open practices. And there are no stupid questions! After 45 years of marriage, my dear wife still asks after a day of golf or whatever “are you home already”? To which I still appropriately say “no I’m still in the driveway”. Lol. Hope you get to see a few practices when you come for a visit. Go Bucs!

Thanks macabee. Your oldsters version helped a lot. I’ll be at as many as I can.
I love training camp and I always try to make it to as many practices as I can, usually opening weekend. I should be able to make it the first Friday and Saturday of opening weekend. I hope to see you there Scubog along with what should be a rowdy crowd with Hard Knocks in attendance.
Looking forward to seeing you Pink. Lots to discuss. Not sure about the first Friday, but for sure Saturday and Sunday.
