The Clemson football team will officially kick off its 2019 season and title defense with spring practice, set to begin later this week.
It seems like just a month ago we were celebrating another huge Clemson football National Championship victory.
As a matter of fact, it was just a little over a month ago.
Despite the fact that the Tigers just really got out of the 2018 season, it’s time for 2019 preparation to get underway.
Since the win, Clemson football players have been going through winter workouts and continuing to get better. Beginning this week, the Tigers will officially turn their attention to the 2019 season with the start of spring practice.
When does spring practice begin?
Clemson football will have its first session of the spring on Wednesday, February 27. Media will be allowed to watch the first 30 minutes of the practice and then talk to Dabo Swinney and a few players following the practice.
Per NCAA rules, the Tigers are allowed to have 15 total sessions in the spring. Of those allowable session, eight may involve live contact and up to three may be scrimmages. You can’t have more than two live contact practices in a week, as well.
The Tigers will host their annual spring game on Saturday, April 6.
That means we’ll see Clemson go through spring practice here the last week in February and throughout March into the first week of April. That’s an average of 2.5 practices per week.
Overall, it should be a fun time. It’s always a good thing when football is happening and that’s exactly what we’ll be getting here until the beginning of April. We will have more spring previews and such to give you before the Tigers get too deep into spring practice, so make sure you check back here on Rubbing the Rock.
