The Indianapolis Colts reported to training camp earlier this week and are gearing up for a successful 2009 season. Even with the departure of Head Coach Tony Dungy and Wide Receiver Marvin Harrison, there is reason to be excited for this year. The Indianapolis Star’s Bob Kravitz even thinks the Colts will be better this year than last.
This year’s training camp will be hosted on the campus of Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana and there are plenty of activities that the public is invited to join in on. Part of the fun at Training Camp is Colts City, which features a bevy of activities like Colts Inflatables (Mountain Slide, Football Bouncer, Quarterback Throw), Colts give-a-ways, a Rock Climbing Wall, the Colts Kids Club and Crib Club and more. Be sure to visit the Colts City Training Camp page for more details and the Colts’ practice schedule, and stay tuned to Colts.com/events throughout the year for tons of Colts-related events all around Indiana.
If you don’t have season tickets to the Colts, your only opportunities to see them this year will likely be during a pre-season game (on 8/14 versus the Vikings and on 8/20 versus the Eagles – available on Ticketmaster.com), but if you live in Central Indiana, you should be able to watch most games on TV.
