With temperatures expected in the mid to high 90s this coming week, you’re playing a little fast and loose with the term “fall camp.”
But, according to the NCAA, the number of days is limited and fan excitement and anticipation is in high gear. So you University of Montana Grizzly football fans will want to know when you can get out there and sweat it out next to the guys on the practice field!
With the media and members of the Big Sky Conference branding them preseason favorites, the Griz carry the added weight of expectation into fall camp starting this Monday, August 8. UM director of sports information Eric Taber reports that Monday is officially the first of 18 days of pre-season training leading up to the 2022 season opener, a home game against United. North West State of the Southland Conference.
Players will show up Friday for a few days of meet-and-greets, gear tweaks and tours, no doubt eager to get out and bump a little, despite the scorching heat. Then, practice will begin on Monday at Dornblaser Field at UM’s South Campus Stadium complex.
Practices should start at 2:30 p.m. each afternoon. The first 11 of these 18 practices are open to the public, and all practices remain open to members of the Griz Quarterback Club.
Unless extreme heat changes the schedule for certain evenings, here is the schedule:
|Monday||8/8||Practice 1||2:30 PM|
|Tuesday||8/9||Practice 2||2:30 PM|
|Wednesday||8/10||Practice 3||2:30 PM|
|Thursday||8/11||Practice 4||2:30 PM|
|Friday||8/12||Practice 5||2:30 PM|
|Saturday||8/13||Practice 6||2:30 PM|
|Monday||8/15||Practice 7||2:30 PM|
|Tuesday||8/16||Practice 8||2:30 PM|
|Wednesday||8/17||Practice 9||2:30 PM|
|Thursday||8/18||Practice 10||2:30 PM|
