In addition to cheering on your favorite players during practice, fans can visit Colts City. It includes a Play 60 Field, Colts In Motion {the team’s new-and-improved interactive mobile experience!} bounce houses, a pro shop, concessions, and more. Colts City – open before, during, and after each scheduled practice – is perfect for wiggly kids of all ages who need to get up and move. 

Training Camp can be some of the first opportunities for the littlest Colts fans to see and interact with the team.

It’s so important for the team; to see our fans come out and show their support means everything to our players,” said Stephanie Pemberton, Vice President of Marketing for the Colts. “It provides such a unique opportunity to interact with the team, and provides the whole family with a day of activities and memorable experiences. We couldn’t be more excited to be able to share this with our fans!”

At training camp, fans can get up close and personal to watch Andrew Luck and the rest of the team out on the field. For all outdoor practices, the Colts will have access to multiple practice fields, though will primarily only use two. Fans are invited to sit on the surrounding elevated bleachers, just yards away from the field and all the action. After practices, players will be available for autographs, depending upon player availability. 

If you have kids between ages 4-14, check out the Helmet Hike. This is a unique experience for kids to interact with the team, when they help carry the players’ helmets after practice. Helmet Hike is offered at select practices. Upon arriving at camp, parents can visit the Helmet Hike booth to check availability. Spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

Important planning tips to know-before-you-go:

  •       Practices are free, but tickets are required for all attendees, regardless of age.
  •       Parking onsite is $5 {or enjoy free parking offsite with a complimentary shuttle}.
  •       No outside food or drink is permitted, but there are ample concessions inside and adult beverages are also available for purchase, so don’t’ forget your ID. If your baby is traveling with breast milk or formula, fear not, you can bring that into camp.
  •       Colts Training Camp follows the same clear bag policy you’ll find at a Colts game. If your child requires a diaper bag, they are permitted, but will be subject to inspection.
  •       Lactation stations will be available for mothers needing a space to nurse or pump. 
  •       Download the Colts app for fan updates about weather, autograph locations, and other activities.
