Football Practice Fields


"This is the hidden gem of NFL camps. Pine trees line the fairwaylike practice field, and a breeze off the San Francisco Peaks blows on a bucolic city 6,905 feet above sea level. WATCH FOR ELK flashes on the highway sign just outside of town."

"We have the best of both worlds with some of the best practice fields in college football. The Cardinals use them for their training camp so they are obviously kept up to a very high standard. With the Dome, we also have a great indoor facility."
