The Jacksonville Jaguars are holding their rookie minicamp Friday May 3 through Sunday May 5 and will be open to the public each day. When owner Shahid Khan was talking about fan access and really engaging the fan base he meant it. Getting a look at the rookies in the minicamp each day is a unique experience that puts the front office in a positive light with its fans.
For those of you who are interested in going, here are the guidelines published by Jaguars.com:
FAN GUIDELINES: As stated earlier, the three mini-camp practice sessions will be open for viewing by the public from Friday, May 3 through Sunday, May 5. Restroom facilities and concessions will be available. Concession stands will include food and beverages as well as Jaguars merchandise.
Fans should park in lots J, M, or N on the west side of the stadium. Still cameras are allowed, as are tablets such as iPads. Among the prohibited items are the following:
- Video cameras and computers are strictly prohibited, as well as horns, whistles and other noisemakers
- Audio or video recording, broadcasting, live streaming and blogging are prohibited
- Coolers or containers including cans, cups and bottles
- Knives, guns and any type of weapon or explosive
- Laser pointers
- Noise makers, whistles and air horns
- Pets, except special services animals
Fans wishing to get autographs are asked to do so after each open practice session, outside the practice field fence as the players return to the locker room. Because of the full schedule during mini-camp, it is not possible to schedule autograph or photo sessions. Groups wishing to visit mini-camp do not need to make special arrangements; they may watch open practice sessions from the bleachers.
It’ll be nice to get an early look at the talent the Jaguars have brought in this offseason.
