On Tuesday, Aug. 1, I attended the Green Bay Packers Training Camp for the first time in 2023. It was the sixth practice of the year, and I made sure to jot down notes on what to expect when attending practice and key highlights from Tuesday’s session.
What Fans Should Expect At Green Bay Packers Training Camp
Over the years, one of the most important things I’ve learned about attending camp is the need to arrive early to get a good seat. I came later than I intended, and finding a suitable spot an hour before practice began was challenging.
Young fans of the Green Bay Packers participate in a unique tradition where they wait with their bikes at Lambeau Field. The players then take their bikes across the street to Ray Nitschke Field. Kids begin lining up as early as 3 to 4 hours before practice to secure a spot at the front line. Seeing people from all over the state and country travel to attend an NFL practice is amazing. The fan energy at practice is remarkable, and the players draw inspiration from it.
Highlights from Practice
Today’s practice could have been more eventful. I observed that Joe Barry and Matt LaFleur focused heavily on coaching the safety position during drills, which is a vulnerable position early in the season. Rashan Gary and Eric Stokes were absent from the team practice but instead were performing individual exercises and rehabilitation on the sidelines.
