The 49ers' rookie program for training camp begins on Tuesday, July 18.

The doldrums of the NFL offseason are finally coming to a close, as many a team has the first stage of training camp opening up this week.

These are primarily camps starting for first-year head coaches or other teams' rookie programs commencing.

For the San Francisco 49ers, the latter applies.

The Niners open up training camp to rookies this week, and as NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maioicco pointed out, first-year pros will undergo a strength and conditioning program for a full week before veterans arrive:

This will include the entirety of San Francisco's 2023 NFL Draft class and undrafted free agents who help comprise the team's 90-man offseason roster.

49ers training camp will begin on July 25

Getting rookies into shape will be one thing. Having the full squad together will be another.

All players are expected to return for training camp by July 25, and the 49ers announced a number of days that'll be open to the public:

  • Wednesday, July 26
  • Thursday, July 27
  • Sunday, July 30
  • Monday, July 31
  • Tuesday, Aug. 1
  • Thursday, Aug. 3
  • Friday, Aug. 4
  • Saturday, Aug. 5
  • Monday, Aug. 7

Fans can purchase tickets for $10 per person, and proceeds benefit the 49ers Foundation.

All practices begin at 10:15 a.m. at the SAP Performance Facility located to the East of Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

The Niners play their first preseason game on Sunday, Aug. 13, against the Las Vegas Raiders, and that'll be preceeded by two joint practices with their former Bay Area rivals.

San Francisco also plays the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Chargers this preseason.

So, while it might seem like the regular season is pretty far away, crucial events on the NFL calendar are happening now.

It's comforting to know!
