1. Autographs: No professional training camp experience is complete without some mixing and mingling with the Stars themselves. No official autograph times will be set up by the organization, but players will be around the seating areas during camp to sign autographs and chat with fans. Keep your eyes and ears open for a chance to meet your favorite player.

2. Gear: Just as it was in 1993, the Stars’ trip to Fort Worth is one of the first opportunities for fans to get their hands on merchandise featuring the team’s new logo and color scheme. A small gift shop will be set up in the Convention Center to sell select items available with the new logo. New jerseys are not available yet, but fans can pre-order one during training camp for October pickup.

3. Parking: The Convention Center parking garage on Houston Street will be available for fans to park for camp. Standard fees for garage usage will apply.

4. Experience: The Stars hope to bring all the excitement of the game-night experience at American Airlines Center to Fort Worth. So fans can expect to experience the Stars’ Street Team, which brings pickup street hockey games, shooting challenges, inflatables and more. It’s a chance to mingle with other Stars fans. Once practice begins, seating is open in the Convention Center, which will be set up in its normal hockey configuration with horseshoe seating around the rink.

5. Other attractions: At 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, alumni will join Mayor Betsy Price at Morningside Elementary in Fort Worth to launch the FitWorth Kids Challenge, which promotes an active lifestyle for kids.
