There will be performances by the Redskins Marching Band and the Redskins Cheerleaders, each celebrating major milestones in 2012.

The First Ladies of Football are the longest running cheer squad in the NFL, and will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary gracing the Redskins' sidelines.

The Redskins' Marching Band was founded in the team's initial season in Washington, and will be performing the Redskins Fight Song and other familiar songs throughout the morning.

Practice kicks off at noon, where fans will be able to watch Robert Griffin III and company battle the defense in the ninth practice of training camp.

For those of you at home, there will be live streaming video beginning at 10 a.m. over on the Redskins Facebook platform.
