T-Birds Announce 2019 Training Camp Schedule

Training Camp ends with Future Showcase and Blue White Game

KENT, August 7, 2019 — The Seattle Thunderbirds are excited to announce their Training Camp schedule for the 2019-20 season. Training Camp will take place at accesso ShoWare Center.

This year we have two new features to our Training Camp Schedule. The first, on the last day of Training Camp, there will be two full length games.

Then at 6pm the annual Blue White Game, consisting of T-Birds prospects and returning veterans, will conclude Training Camp.

The teams in both of these games on August 24 will be wearing T-Birds white and blue game jerseys, unlike prior scrimmages which will feature team branded practice jerseys.

The second new feature is that, when Training Camp opens on Tuesday, August 20, the scrimmages at accesso ShoWare Center, will be between four teams made up of T-Birds returning players, prospects and free agents.
