Football teams can begin walk-through practices July 24

The NCAA’s Division I Council approved summer activities and preseason practice measures, which would allow for an earlier start of preseason camp on July 24.

This would allow Florida State football to have 20 hours of “countable athletically related activities per week” but not more than four hours each day from July 24-Aug. 6. The 20 hours can be divided up with up to eight hours per week for weight training and conditioning, up to six hours per week for walk-throughs, and up to six hours for meetings, which could include film review, team meetings, position meetings and one-on-one meetings.

It’s a measure that adds two extra weeks of practices ahead of what is the normal preseason camp. There are no changes to the 29-day preseason practice period.

From July 13-23, schools can hold up to eight hours of weight training, conditioning and film review per week (with not more than two hours of film review per week). 

FSU is slated to open the season against West Virginia on Sept. 5.
