Virginia football to hold spring practice March 26 at Episcopal High

By Steve Yanda

The Virginia football team announced Thursday its spring practice schedule, which included a road trip to Episcopal High School in Alexandria on March 26. The workout session will be from 1-3 p.m. and will be free to the public.

Virginia will begin its 15-session spring practice slate March 16 on the practice fields behind the McCue Center. The Orange-Blue spring game will be held April 2 at Scott Stadium following the conclusion of the Virginia-Maryland men's lacrosse game, which will begin at noon.

In addition to the open practice at Episcopal, the Cavaliers also will travel to Hampton to hold a workout session at Darling Stadium on March 19. That practice also will take place from 1-3 p.m. and will be free to the public.

Other practice sessions open to the public will take place at the practice fields behind the McCue Center on March 16 (6-8 a.m.), March 18 (6-8 a.m.), April 8 (6-8 a.m.) and April 9 (noon-2 p.m.).

Admission to the spring game on April 2 will be free following the conclusion of the lacrosse contest. The football team will take the field roughly five minutes after the lacrosse game has ended and will proceed to warm-up for approximately 35 minutes.

Scott Stadium's East, West and South lots, as well as the North D lot off Alderman Road, will be available for free parking beginning at 8 a.m. on April 2. Free public parking also will be available in the Emmet/Ivy Parking Garage and University Hall parking lots. Hourly rates will apply at the Central Grounds Garage. The Scott Stadium gates will open at 11 a.m.

I don't know if this sort of away practice is the norm with other schools, but I have to say that I love what Coach London is doing to raise the visibility of the UVa football program around the Commonwealth. And based on his first recruiting class, it's already paying dividends.
