      For Immediate Release
      May 30, 2014

      BON SECOURS WASHINGTON REDSKINS TRAINING CENTER OPENS TO THE PUBLIC FOR TRAINING CAMP IN RICHMOND ON THURSDAY, JULY 24

      Richmond training camp will feature 15 days of practice open to accommodate fans;
      Team will practice jointly with New England Patriots on Aug. 4-6

      RICHMOND, Va. – The Washington Redskins, in partnership with Bon Secours Virginia Health System, the City of Richmond and the Virginia Governor’s Office, announced their 2014 training camp schedule, set to take place at the world-class Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center from July 24 through Aug. 11 in Richmond, Va. The schedule features a total of 15 days of practice sessions that will be open to the public, highlighted by Fan Appreciation Day on Saturday, Aug. 2 and joint practice sessions with the New England Patriots on Aug. 4-6.

      Admission is free for all fans. Following practice, Redskins players and coaches will be made available to sign autographs and take pictures with fans, schedules permitting.

      “All of us at the Washington Redskins are extremely excited to return to Richmond for Training Camp this season,” Redskins President Bruce Allen said. “Our inaugural camp at the Bon Secours Washington Redskins Training Center last year was a tremendous success, whether it related to our on-field work, our connection with the fans or the number of children we were able to positively impact in the community. We look forward to returning to do all those things and prepare for our upcoming season.”

      Prior to their arrival at training camp, Redskins fans are encouraged to fill out their free Training Camp Fan Invitation, which is available at redskins.com/trainingcamp.

      The $10 million dollar state-of-the-art training center debuted last season and features two full-size natural grass fields, a natural grass drill field, spectator areas, locker rooms and a high-tech training room. Last year, the facility welcomed more than 165,000 fans during the course of camp, including more than 25,000 visitors during the team’s annual Fan Appreciation Day. In addition, more than 5,000 children were directly impacted by youth programs in the community during the team’s stay in Richmond. Events and activities included a Play 60 Mini-Combine, the Back to School Shopping Spree, Coaches in the Classroom, a high school coaches clinic, a Richmond Public Library Summer Reading Finale, youth cheerleading programs and more.

      The Bon Secours Virginia Health System ensures the facility serves as a valuable year-round resource for the community when camp is not in session, operating the facility as a full service sports medicine rehabilitation and men’s health center on the property throughout the year in addition to offering men’s health, fitness and education programs. The facility is also home to movin’ mania, Bon Secours’ healthy kids initiative.

      The City of Richmond has developed field utilization plans to ensure the facility is available for a variety of sporting events and other activities throughout the year. The fields are available for youth programming, tournaments and other uses that generate revenue and positive exposure for the City of Richmond when camp is not in session. In April, the facility hosted the minicamp of the Canadian Football League’s Ottawa REDBLACKS.

      “Bon Secours is thrilled to have the Washington Redskins back in Richmond for Training Camp. Our health system is proud to partner with an organization that is expanding health and wellness initiatives in our area,” said Peter Bernard, CEO of Bon Secours Virginia Health System. “This is an exciting time for fans and our community.”

      The City of Richmond will offer a variety of parking options for Redskins fans during training camp. Available parking lots provided by the City of Richmond will be announced closer to camp.

      “The Redskins training camp had an exciting first year, and I know this year will be even better as Richmond and the Redskins welcome the New England Patriots to town,” said Richmond Mayor Dwight C. Jones. “We're expecting even more people and lots more fun, and we've created a family friendly atmosphere for our residents and out of town guests. People came from all 50 states last year, to discover everything that Virginia's capital city has to offer. We hope people enjoy their stay in Richmond."

      In addition to the opportunity to watch practice, the Redskins will offer special events, giveaways and other unique fan experience destinations. Fans can also enjoy various interactive tents and purchase their favorite Redskins merchandise at the Redskins Team Store tent. Located behind the Science Museum of Virginia and the Children’s Museum of Richmond, fans can also take advantage of special museum exhibits that will be featured during camp.

      “I am thrilled to begin the second year of the great relationship between the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Washington Redskins,” Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe said. “This year's training camp is an opportunity for families from all over Virginia to follow the team they love and experience the great culture, dining, shopping and more that the Richmond region has to offer. I am looking forward to visiting camp this year and I encourage all of my fellow fans to join me.”
