    The Texans are having their first training camp starting May 7-9 then another June 14-16 and I'm just dying to get involved with everything dealing with the Texans. What I'm wanting to know is whether the training camp is available to the public. I'd love to see it in person but I'm sure if folks are allowed to, it'd be an extremely limited amount of people with special passes or something. If not, I guess I'll have to settle for coverage on channel 24, ESPN, and channel 13. :(

    Thanks in advance! ;)

    Last year, the evening sessions of most of the training camp days were open to the public. The Texans built bleachers for the purpose and had concessions, signings, etc. going on outside. Tickets were free through Foley's. Don't remember the mini-camps being open to the public last year.

    From my understanding, the mini-camps are not open to the public. The training camp which usually starts the third week of July or so through the second week of August had the night practices open to the public. Usually, there would be three night practices a week. Last year, the tickets were gree but had to be obtained from Foley's or I think Fiesta food, but not positive on that or how they are going to do it this year.

    By the way, it seems like the season's starting late this year! We have a preseason game on SEPTEMBER 2. When does Texans camp start?

    Do not believe they have set the exact date yet, but I might be wrong. However, camp started July 25th last year, so maybe something like July 30th or July 31st. It seems everything is getting started a week later this year, but I just cannot see the starting date for training camp being pushed back until August. Additionally, even though the first scheduled preseason game is on August 14th, I remember hearing that the Dolphins will visit and practice some joint dates with the Texans and then play a scrimmage, which would logically occur some time the weekend of August 7th maybe. Just a guess, but the Texans would get a week of practice under their belts before practicing with the Dolphins. Wasn't there a rumor about practicing with the Saints too? That makes sense to me, but someone else with better knowledge, please help out.

    Training camp opens July 30th. I heard it on the news the other night. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone there.
