sunsThe Phoenix Suns will return to Flagstaff, Ariz. for the second consecutive season when they report for training camp at Northern Arizona University from September 30 through October 4.

This year marks the 18th time the City of Flagstaff has hosted the team’s training camp and the second straight year after the Suns returned in 2013 for the first time since 2004. Phoenix first used Flagstaff as a training camp site in 1986, coincidentally the first training camp as a player for now Head Coach Jeff Hornacek.

The Suns’ week in Flagstaff will culminate with an open to the public scrimmage, starting at noon on Saturday, Oct. 4, at NAU’s J. Lawrence Walkup Skydome.
