It will be two-a-day sessions until Aug. 2, when the annual intrasquad scrimmage is held at Qwest Field. The first practice in pads is on the morning of Sunday, July 27.
Camp breaks after the morning practice on Aug. 21, a Thursday.
More on the scrimmage: It begins at 11 a.m. on Aug. 2. Should last about an hour and a half. Tickets go on sale starting tomorrow at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster outlets and ticketmaster.com . Prices are $12for adults, $5 for youth ages 6-17, and kids under age 5 get in free. Gates to the stadium open at 9 a.m. that day.
More from an official statement from the team on the scrimmage:
"All proceeds from the scrimmage will benefit 'Play It Smart' programs in King & Pierce Counties. The Seahawks, in partnership with the National Football Foundation, fund 'Play It Smart' programs at Clover Park and Rainier Beach High Schools during the 2008-09 school year."
"'Play It Smart' is an educational program designed to transform student-athletes' passion for sport and intense dedication to their team into a force for greater good in their lives... "
"Prior to the scrimmage, the team will host a two-hour Gatorade Jr. Training Camp (ages 8-14) at 8 a.m. Participants will have the chance to work with local high school coaches to learn football fundamentals, techniques and skills. Participants must register through seahawks.com. Campers will be admitted into the scrimmage for free. Parents/guardians of the campers must have a ticket to attend the scrimmage.

I think it is sad that you have to pay to see the Seahawks have a practice game. In the past, when the seahawks didn't alienate the east side of the state, the practice game at Cheney was free.
