Albany, N.Y. -- University at Albany Vice President and Director of Athletics Lee McElroy announced on Tuesday, June 17 the New York Giants' summer training camp schedule. The Giants, who have trained on the UAlbany campus since 1996, begin workouts on Friday, July 25. The camp concludes on Sunday, August 17.

For the third consecutive year, Giants training camp will feature eight evening practices. The first night practice is slated for Monday, July 28, at 6:10 p.m. All eight sessions are preceded by a morning workout at 8:40 a.m. The other day-night workouts are scheduled for July 28 and 30, plus August 1, 3, 5, 10, 12 and 15.

As has been the routine in previous camps, the Giants will not practice on the days following preseason games. On the day before a preseason game, the team will hold a one-hour jog-thru session.

Giants training camp all-session parking passes will be available at UAlbany's Athletic Merchandise Store, located in the SEFCU Arena Lobby, beginning Monday, July 7.

UAlbany and the Giants are currrently in the second year of an agreement that has kept the National Football League organization's training camp in the Capital Region. The arrangement also includes the option for a third year in 2009.

The Giants are traveling to UAlbany for the thirteenth consecutive summer, matching the longest period in the team's training camp history. The Giants previously spent thirteen summers at Pace University in Pleasantville, N.Y. from 1975-87. The Giants, who have also trained in the states of Vermont, Connecticut, New Jersey, Wisconsin and Oregon, previously worked out at Fairleigh Dickinson University (1988-95) in Madison, New Jersey prior to their arrival on the UAlbany campus.

In the 12 years that the Giants have trained at UAlbany, the preseason camp has averaged 31,032 fans per summer. The all-time mark of 45,040 was established in 2004.
