Attending Giants practice for first time, any recommendation

Fan in Philly : 8/12/2017 5:18 pm
I'll be attending the practice at the Quest center tomorrow with my 12-year old son and was wondering if anyone who has attended in the past has any recommendations/ tips. I have looked at the info on Giants.com but still had a few questions.

Specifically:

- What time should we plan on arriving if practice is at 11:10? Saw that the parking lot opens 1 hour before practice begins.
- Can we bring our own food/ drink?
- Sounds like seating is limited. Should we bring our own chairs or is that not allowed?
- How long does the practice last?

Thank you for your help!
I haven't been there since last year, but

here goes:

- What time should we plan on arriving if practice is at 11:10? Saw that the parking lot opens 1 hour before practice begins.

I'd say no later than 09:50 am. Yes, you are going to wait in line a while, but you'll get a decent seat in the stands.

- Can we bring our own food/ drink?

I was able to, but no glass bottles. Get plastic water or soda bottles. I put a subway sandwich and a few water bottles in a small soft carry cooler, didn't have issues. They will inspect all bags.

- Sounds like seating is limited. Should we bring our own chairs or is that not allowed?

I wouldn't. When I went, they were making people bring chairs back to their car, though that may be different this year. You want to get to the two stands on the left side (near where the players come out). The stands are covered, and if you're mid level on the stands, you get a decent view.

- How long does the practice last?- What time should we plan on arriving if practice is at 11:10? Saw that the parking lot opens 1 hour before practice begins.

Usually about two hours. If the weather is iffy, or a thunderstorm is coming, they'll go inside and only reporters are allowed. Check the weather forcast.

- Can we bring our own food/ drink?

I think so. Bring Binoculars, sunglasses, hats and suntan stuff as well.

If you want autographs, ask the staff where you get checked about it...I think there is a line for kids only, where a limited number get wristbands for the autograph line. The staff should have the details.
