St. Joseph, Mo--For the second straight year, the Kansas City Chiefs rolled into Scanlon Hall on the campus of Missouri Western State University, reporting for day one of Chiefs training camp.

Several of the usual suspects were spotted: Matt Cassel, Jamaal Charles, Tony Moeaki, even Defensive Coordinator Romeo Crennel was seen unloading his car in the parking lot on the southeast end of campus.

The Chiefs first practice will be Friday, July 29th at 3:30 pm. The public is invited.

Beginning this year, some of the team's practices will be walkthroughs instead of full practices. For full practices, players will wear helmets and full pads and will take part in contact drills. During walkthroughs players will wear only shorts and their practice jerseys, they will not wear helmets, and will not take part in any contact drills. Fans can check for updated information on the type of practice to expect each day. For the opening weekend only, players will be in helmets and shells and practice will be similar to an off-season OTA.

Unless otherwise noted, all outdoor training camp practices will be free of charge. MWSU will charge a $5 daily parking fee in all lots throughout the duration of training camp except for practices where admission is charged.

Training camp will be highlighted by Family Fun Day presented by American Family Insurance on Saturday, Aug. 6 at 1:30 p.m. at Spratt Stadium. MWSU will charge a $12 admission fee on Family Fun Day with free admission for children three (3) and under. Parking is free on Family Fun Day. A special Season Ticket Holder event will be announced at a later date.

The Chiefs are scheduled to conduct two free night practices at Spratt Stadium on Wednesday, Aug. 3 and Wednesday, Aug. 10 at 7:15 p.m. In addition, MWSU will host a Training Camp Sendoff Event that will be announced at a later date.

All training camp dates, times and practices are subject to change due to weather conditions and other factors. Practices conducted indoors at Missouri Western State University are not open to the public. Fans are strongly encouraged to consult for the most up-to-date schedule information.
