ST. LOUIS -- The Stanley Cup champion Blues will open training camp Sept. 14 at their new practice facility, Centene Community Ice Center in Maryland Heights.

Practice sessions for 58 scheduled skaters will hold three time slots beginning at 10 a.m. and run at 10, 11 a.m. and noon.

Sessions on Sept. 14-15 are open to the public, and fans can get reserved seating for a $10 donation to the Blues for Kids Foundation by purchasing tickets at MetroTix.com beginning Thursday. Season ticket holders can begin purchasing tickets at 10 a.m. (limit of 4 tickets per account) before the general public sale begins at noon.

Doors open at 9 a.m. both days.

Before practice begins on Saturday, the Blues will unveil a commemorative jersey at 9:45 a.m. that will be worn for three home games during the 2019-20 season. 

In addition, the Blues will host Try Hockey for Free sessions for children ages 4-12 on the Plager Rink from 12:30 until 2:30 p.m. on Sept. 14. A parent/legal guardian must be present to sign a waiver for their child to participate.

Additional outdoor activities and access to ancillary rink activations, including pre-practice warm-ups and post-practice cool downs, are open to the public at no cost.

Tickets available at MetroTix.com will be mobile-only and will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis by best available locations. As part of NHL policy, all fans entering Centene Community Ice Center must go through a security screening upon entry.
