Full List of Dates for 49ers 2016 Offseason Program

With the 2016 NFL Draft now in the rear-view mirror, the next event on the horizon for the San Francisco 49ers is rookie minicamp.

This will mark the first time the team's new players will be on the field and training with Chip Kelly's coaching staff.

Back in early April, San Francisco's nine-week offseason program began with strength and conditioning workouts. The calendar eventually crescendos in June with three days of mandatory minicamp.

The program is broken down into three phases. Here is the tentative schedule: 

First Day of Phase 1 (begins April 4)

The first two weeks of the program consists of activities limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation only.

Local Pro Day (April 13)

Draft prospects who attended high school or college in the Bay Area are invited to work out for the 49ers coaching staff and scouts.

First Day of Phase 2 (begins April 18)

On-field workouts may include individual player instruction and drills as well as team practice conducted on a "separates" basis. No live contact or team offense versus team defense drills are permitted.

OTAs (May 17-19, May 24-26, May 31, June 1-2)

Teams may conduct a total of 10 days of organized team practice activity, or "OTAs." No live contact is permitted, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills with helmets are permitted. Maximum six hours per day, with a maximum two hours on field for any player.

Voluntary minicamp (April 26-28)

This only applies to teams with a new head coach. The voluntary minicamp must take place prior to the draft, but no earlier than week three of the offseason workout program. This minicamp is subject to the same rules as the mandatory camp below.

Rooke minicamp (first or second weekend after draft)

Clubs may elect to hold their one, three-day post-draft rookie minicamp from Friday through Sunday or Saturday through Monday. Each club may hold a rookie football development program for a period of seven weeks, which in 2016 may begin on May 9. During this period, no activities may be held on weekends, with the exception of one post-draft rookie minicamp, which may be conducted on either the first or second weekend following the draft.

Mandatory minicamp (June 7-9)

No mandatory veteran minicamp may exceed three days in length, plus one day for physical examinations. Two-a-day practices shall be permitted at two of the three practice days of the club's one mandatory minicamp. Players may only be asked to participate in the club's activities for a maximum of ten hours per day including taping and treatment but excluding mealtime. On-field activities are limited to three and a half hours per player.

All dates are subject to change.
