For the sixth consecutive year, Colts Training Camp Presented by Verizon will be held at Anderson University in Anderson, Ind. Practice dates and times will be announced at a later date. Following training camp, the team will return to the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center to resume football operations.
The team originally spent their summers at Anderson University from their inaugural season in 1984 to 1998 and then returned in 2010. The 2015 training camp will be located at the Kardatzke Wellness Center/Macholtz Stadium complex located in the Northeast section of the university campus. The public can access the camp via University Boulevard and 5th Street. Campus signage will be present to direct the public to available parking for the duration of camp. Entire practices will be open to the public free of charge, however, Anderson University will charge a parking fee for campus visitors.
Since returning to Anderson in 2010, the university has made significant improvements to the campus. In 2002, Anderson dedicated the Kardatzke Wellness Center. The 132,000 square-foot facility connects the O.C. Lewis Gymnasium and Bennett Natatorium at the Northeast end of the campus.
In addition to the Kardatzke Wellness Center, the university has upgraded and enhanced residential facilities on the campus. The school constructed York Seminary Village on the east side of Walnut Street, between 6th and 7th Streets, in Anderson and remodeled 5th Street directly in front of Reardon Auditorium.
Improvements to the athletic complex have included new baseball dugouts at Don Brandon Field and an all-weather synthetic field turf and outdoor lights at Macholtz Stadium in the summer of 2008. Master planning around the athletic complex is currently underway with refinements to the practice fields and upgrades to the locker rooms on the Northeast corner of the Kardatzke Wellness Center.
Anderson is a private Christian university of 2,600 undergraduate and graduate students in central Indiana.
