The Giants are opening up 11 training camp practices to the public for free, the team announced Tuesday.

The practices will be held at Quest Diagnostics Training Center on the MetLife Sports complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey. There will be free parking and admission, but seating will be limited along the practice fields.

However, the Giants are changing up their post-practice autogaph procedure after an incident last year where the aluminum bleachers buckled because of fans rushing to get Odell Beckham Jr.’s autograph.

In addition to select Giants legends signing autographs each day for all fans, a rotating group of current players will sign autographs for the first 400 fans age 12 and under. The autograph opportunity will take place behind the Kids’ Zone area. All kids who are interested in the opportunity must visit the sign-up table with a guardian upon arriving at the practice so that they can receive a wristband. Kids must have a wristband to be permitted into the autograph area.

Below are the practice dates and start times for those that will be open to the public:

Friday, July 29: 10:40 a.m.

Saturday, July 30: 10:40 a.m.

Sunday, July 31: 10:40 a.m.

Tuesday, Aug. 2: 10:40 a.m.

Thursday, Aug. 4: 10:40 a.m.

Friday, Aug. 5: 10:40 a.m (no autograph session)
