Denver Broncos 2011 Training Camp Schedule

Photo by Kaptain Kirk 8/1/10
This is what it looked like at the first Training Camp practice in 2010. 
Over 3,300 fans lined up to witness Tim Tebow's debut as a Denver Bronco.

The full practice schedule for the Broncos 2011 Training Camp at Dove Valley has been announced. All 18 practices are open to the public (yes I've seen Raiders fans there too). There is no charge to watch the team and there will be chances to get autographs from your favorite Bronco. However, there is one caveat. This schedule has been finalized — but keep in mind dates and times are subject to change without much notice. The Paul D. Bowlen Memorial Broncos Centre, aka Dove Valley Training Complex, is located 3 miles East of I-25 on Arapahoe Road, on the corner of Potomac and Broncos Parkway in Englewood, CO.

The Gates will open one hour before the session begins.



Kaptain's Tips: If you are coming to practice seeking autographs, the afternoon session is better. After the morning practice, the players don't have as much time, as they must shower and get to their classroom work. They have extra time after the late practice and most will stay a little longer. Also, the players are assigned autograph duty by unit. One day it will be the Running Backs and the next time Receivers etc. On occasion, one of the other players will come over if persuaded. Eddie Royal, Brian Dawkins and yes Tebow signed more than their share. 

Bring your Bronco Caps, footballs, jerseys or 8X10 color glossies, they will sign them all. You usually don't need to bring a Sharpie unless it's one of those fancy silver or gold ones for different colored items. I pack a few anyway, just in case one of the unscheduled players walks up.

Still Cameras are another good thing to bring. Just don't show up with a telephoto lens. They will check to see if your zoom lens is too long. The limit is the length of a credit card. If your zoom lens extends further than that, take my advice, leave it at home or you will have to hike back to your vehicle, possibly missing practice time. No video cameras or tripods will be allowed. 

Umbrellas are a no-no. If the weather calls for rain (and it may this week), bring rain gear. Something comfortable to sit on is a good idea. Some folks bring a blanket to sit on. I have an air seat for my personal comfort. 

Bring sunscreen, lip balm and bug repellent. You'll be happy you did.

You can bring bottled water or soda, just no alcohol. It must be in plastic bottles. No glass, aluminum cans or canteens. The reason for this is for player safety. There are times when the players run into the crowd chasing passes and the team doesn't want anyone getting injured by cuts or stabbing umbrellas. There will be beverages available for purchase, but I recommend bringing your own. A sandwich or snack might be a good idea, but you can always eat before or after. Soft-sided bags no larger than 12" x 12" x 12" will be permitted at training camp. I bring a plastic bag to carry my gear.

The Parking Lot at the facility is on the west side of the practice fields and is open on a first-come, first-served basis. Because space is limited, please arrive early. The parking area is open one hour before the start of each practice.

There are no bleachers at Training Camp, but fans will be seated along the west end of the practice fields on a grassy embankment. I like to sit between the 40's to view the most action, but there are no bad seats. Lawn chairs are not allowed (for player protection).

Fans with a Disability will have a comfortable elevated pavilion seating area that is Wheel chair accessible. Don't worry, the players will come and visit anyone who sits in this area.  


There will be a temporary Broncos’ Team Store located adjacent to the practice fields during training camp. You can't miss it and if you forgot something to autograph, need a jersey, football, lip balm or a Sharpie, they have it.

If you can make it, look me up and we can enjoy Practice together. I will be the dude with the clipboard and supplemental oxygen backpack furiously writing notes for the rest of you.


I can't wait for Thursday.


Go Broncos!
