Blast to Hold Open Tryouts Prior to 2014-15 Season
Baltimore – The Baltimore Blast will hold open tryouts in October at the Southeast Regional Recreation Center located at 4021 North Point Boulevard in Baltimore. The Blast will open training camp October 20th and start the 2014-15 MASL season November 8th.
The open tryouts will be held October 11-12 from 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. and are open to male soccer players ages 18 years and older. College players with remaining eligibility are not permitted in the tryout as per NCAA rules and regulations. Current professional players must have a letter of release from their current club in order to participate.
Players will be assessed by head coach Danny Kelly and assistant coach David Bascome. Players who make it through the open tryouts will be invited to attend a three-day mini-camp October 15-17.
“We’re always looking for players, and the open tryout is another avenue for prospective players to get in front of the coaching staff and show their skill set. Ultimately it’s their chance to prove they have what it takes to play at a professional level” said Kelly.
The registration fee for each player who attends open tryouts is $100. Space is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis; walk-in players will not be granted a tryout. All players must submit a tryout application to the Blast office by October 8th. Applications are available at www.baltimoreblast.com and the application fee is non-refundable.
