By Eastern Washington Athletics

The Eastern Washington University football team will begin practices for the 2018 season the first week of August on the Sports and Recreation Center practice fields in Cheney, Wash.
 
Players will report on Aug. 2 for orientation and conditioning, then the team will practice together for the first time on Sunday, Aug. 5 at 3 p.m. The next day, the first media availability of the season will take place in conjunction with practice, also at 3 p.m.
 
Eastern will practice in pads for the first time on Tuesday, Aug. 7 at 3 p.m. Because the NCAA no longer allows two-a-day practices, Eastern will practice together for nearly a full month prior to the team's opener, which is Sept. 1 at home versus Central Washington. The Eagles are expected to exclusively use the practice fields through Aug. 14, after which Roos Field will be utilized
 
The Eagles will scrimmage twice before the team's season opener. Eastern's first scrimmage of preseason camp will take place on Saturday, Aug. 18 at approximately 3 p.m. at Roos Field. The second scrimmage will take place on Saturday, Aug. 25 also at approximately 3 p.m. at Roos Field. Both are free and open to the public.
 
Times and locations of all practices and scrimmages are below, and are tentative and subject to change.
 
 

Schedule of EWU Practices

Times and locations are tentative and subject to change. Practices usually last for two hours. Media interviews need to be coordinated and approved in advance with Dave Cook/dcook@ewu.edu, but typically take place 20-30 minutes before the practice time listed or after scrimmages. Days available for media availability with assistance from EWU Sports Information staff are marked below with ***. Be sure to always confirm practice times and locations prior to departure for campus. No interviews after Wednesday before games, with Tuesday afternoon before practice the typical pre-game interview day (could be afterwards depending on time practice begins).
