Cal announced that spring workouts will begin Monday, March 9 and conclude with its Cal Football Spring Experience and spring game on Saturday, April 18.
Most practices are scheduled to be open to the public.
“We want to share what we are working on with our great fans,” coach Sonny Dykes said in a statement. “We’ve been preparing diligently in our offseason conditioning program to get ourselves ready to get back on the field for spring ball.
“We’re excited about the work our guys are putting in and the upward trajectory our program is on.”
The Cal Spring Football Experience is an admission-free, interactive event that gives fans an opportunity to get to know players and coaches in the Cal program on an up-close basis.
