Rapids Hit Official Training Field for First Time

Today was a special treat for the Rapids as Gary Smith's squad was finally able to train on the club's official training pitch this morning for the first time this year.

The official training pitch, which is an exact replica of the field inside the stadium, is finally back to form and the grass is ready to take the wear and tear of a Rapids training session.

The squad had previously been training on the artificial turf fields at the complex, with a session on one of the other grass fields every once in a while depending on how far along its progress was.

Long story short, the team's happy to be back on their official training pitch, and the grass is back in world-class shape.

All the Rapids players and the technical staff, led by coach Gary Smith, shared a cold morning of physical and technical training this morning.

Sharing the complex with the Rapids this week will be the Bolivian National Team (who arrive in Denver later today), and the Mexican National Team (who arrive tomorrow). While both national teams will host training sessions at Dick's Sporting Goods Park ahead of Wednesday's international tilt at the stadium, neither team will have access to the Rapids' pristine official training pitch.

Can the public attend any of the training sessions this week or next? If so, at what time?
