The Cardinals will host the annual Red and White practice at Training Camp 2012 presented by Hyundai on the campus of Northern Arizona University Saturday.
With a large crowd expected, the team would like fans to be aware of the following details concerning the event.
PRACTICE: Fans will have the opportunity to watch the Cardinals take the field and practice from 11:30 a.m.-1:20 p.m. at the upper fields across from the Walkup Skydome.
WEATHER: If the weather prevents the team from practicing on the grass fields at NAU, the action will move indoors to the Walkup Skydome.
KIDS PRE-PRACTICE AUTOGRAPH SESSION: Weather permitting, a special autograph session for kids will take place on the lower field across the street from the Skydome prior to practice from 10:45-11:10 a.m. Rain could move the autograph session indoors to the Skydome.
The session is open to kids 12 years old or younger only.
- Because of time limitations, there will be a one item per child limit and no posed photos will be permitted.
- Gates for the autograph session will open at 9:45 a.m. and a specified number of people will be then allowed to start lining up in the player lines.
- Space is limited and fans will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Lines will be monitored and cut-off to make sure they don't exceed the number of people that can be accommodated during the session.
PARKING: Due to large crowds, NAU has set up a special parking plan for Saturday. Sections of both McConnell Drive and San Francisco Street surrounding the Skydome will be closed beginning at 6:30 AM through the conclusion of practice. Fans coming from the Valley should take the McConnell exit (#341) off I-17 just past the Interstate 40 interchange. Make a right turn at the stop sign and proceed to Pine Knoll. Make a right turn onto Pine Knoll, then in to the large parking lot on the right for shuttle service to the fields. Buses will be leaving every 5-10 minutes from the lot. Parking for disabled individuals will be provided directly east of the Skydome lot, just north of Pine Knoll. Follow signage to the disable parking.
