Welcome to BC Lions Training Camp

 

This is your one-stop location on BCLIONS.COM for everything you’ll need to follow the team as they prepare for a run at a seventh Grey Cup title in our 70th season in 2024. Practice schedules, printable position charts, rosters and detailed practice reports will be updated daily when the team hits the field beginning with rookie camp on Wednesday, May 8 and for the start of main camp on Sunday, May 12.

**Please note: media and fans are welcome to watch practice from the stands at Hillside Stadium. Reporters will be allowed to shoot footage from various parts of the track but must first check-in with a member of the Lions communications staff before commencing with filming.

The Lions will occupy the all-weather surface located at Hillside Stadium adjacent to the campus of Thompson Rivers University.  Select practices listed in the tentative camp schedule below may take place on the lower grass field. Please note, practice times (especially ending times) are subject to change on short notice.

Media on-site at Hillside Stadium will be permitted to conduct in-person interviews after practice on a daily basis. Player and coach requests for reporters on-site must be submitted to Matt Baker: mbaker@bclions.com, before the end of practice.

Local media in Vancouver not on-site and wishing to conduct interviews virtually or on the phone must submit their requests no later than TWO HOURS prior to the end of practice on any given day. Best efforts will be given to accommodate virtual or phone interviews during the allotted time for media availability as per the daily schedule below.

At the discretion of the BC Lions communications and football ops. staff, ENG Camera operators looking to capture B-Roll footage may be permitted to move closer to the field. Filming will not be allowed during certain portions of practice, particularly during the ‘team’ periods.

*Schedule is subject to change. All practices take place at Hillside Stadium.
