The Washington Capitals’ 2008 rookie camp begins September 14th and culminates with a game against the Philadelphia Flyers rookies on Thursday, September 18th at 3pm at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Virginia.

Every on-ice session during rookie camp is free and open to the public to attend. The game against Philadelphia is also free, but a ticket will be needed to gain admission. To secure a ticket, fans will need to RSVP at WashingtonCaps.com. Since seating at Kettler Capitals Iceplex is limited there is a maximum of two tickets per person, and tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. A ticket will gain fans admission to the game, but because of seating limitations it does not necessarily guarantee a seat.

Fans can begin to RSVP online on Thursday, Sept. 4, and will need to bring their printed confirmation with them to gain admission to the game. Fans will need to enter through the main entrance of Kettler Capitals Iceplex, which is on the eighth floor of the Ballston Common Mall parking garage. No copies or duplicate confirmation sheets will be permitted.

Washington Capitals’ 2008 training camp, which will include veterans and select group of young players and prospects, will open Saturday, Sept. 20, and will be held at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. All on-ice sessions during training camp are open to the public and free of charge.
