The New Orleans Saints are holding public training camp sessions soon, and you need to act quickly if you want free tickets.

Why it matters: Training camp gives you an early indication of how the team is looking and playing together before the season starts.

  • It's also great opportunity to get autographs and selfies with players.

The schedule: The Saints will hold seven public practices at the Ochsner Sports Performance Center on Airline Highway in Metairie.

  • Friday, July 28.
  • Saturday, July 29.
  • Monday, July 31.
  • Friday, Aug. 4.
  • Saturday, Aug. 5.
  • Sunday, Aug. 6.
  • Thursday, Aug. 10.

How it works: Tickets are available to the general public at 10am Wednesday.

  • You must register to attend. You are limited to four tickets per registrant and two practices total.
  • The tickets get you a spot on the bleachers, which Saints officials say will be covered and misted. Bathrooms are available too.
  • Concessions and merchandise will be for sale.

Worth noting: If there's bad weather, practices will be moved inside and closed to the public. Check the status before you go.

The big picture: The Saints have a new quarterback in the form of Derek Carr.

  • The four-time Pro Bowler comes to New Orleans from the Las Vegas Raiders, and even Drew Brees is hopeful he'll turn things around after the team's 7-10 finish last season.

What's next: The Saints' first preseason game is Aug. 13 against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Caesars Superdome.

  • The regular season kicks off Sept. 10 at home. They'll play the Tennessee Titans.
