The Jaguars are taking training camp to Bartram Trail High School on Monday, July 28. They are also opening mini camp practices at the stadium to the fans on June 17 and June 18.

The training camp session at Bartram Trail is scheduled to run from 7 to 9 p.m.

Admission and parking are free for the practice. Members of the ROAR and Jaxson de Ville will also be in attendance. Several Jaguars alumni will sign autographs prior to practice and all players and coaches will sign autographs at the completion of practice.

“This is just another indication of what we are trying to do to as we become more integrated into the community,” Jaguars President Mark Lamping said. “These things don’t happen without the commitment of our football operations led by David Caldwell and Gus Bradley.”

“This is a great opportunity for us and goes with the vision that Shad (Khan) and Mark (Lamping) have created for this organization,” Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell said. “This is a great opportunity to give back to the community and bring Monday night football to Bartram Trail. We think it’s going to be a great event not only for the community but for us as a team. This is just the first step in what we are trying to produce and over time we are going to take this show on the road multiple times over the course of the next couple of years.”

“It’s been a great partnership the last two years between St. Johns County school district and the Jaguars,” said Dr. Joe Joyner, St. Johns County Superintendent of Schools. “The leadership of Shad Khan and Mark Lamping have really reached out to the community and it’s been amazing the last two years. The Jaguars represent the type of values we represent as a school system. This is a great opportunity for Bartram Trail High School and St. Johns County. I can assure you it will be the largest event in St. Johns County that night. It’s a real joy to see things going in such a positive direction with the Jaguars.”

The Jaguars will open the first two days of the club’s mandatory minicamp to the public on Tuesday, June 17 and Wednesday, June 18, General Manager David Caldwell announced today. Both practices are scheduled to run from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on the Florida Blue Practice Fields. The club announced last week that its OTA practice on Thursday, June 5 will be open to the public from 10:50 a.m. to 12:50 p.m.
