Blast to Hold Open Tryouts Prior to 2013-14 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 in late-October and start the 2013-14 MISL season in mid-November.
The open tryouts will be held October 19 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and October 20 from 9 a.m. to Noon 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 members of the Blast coaching and management staffs, including head coach Danny Kelly, assistant coach David Bascome and General Manager Kevin Healey. Players who make it through the open tryouts will be invited to attend a three-day mini-camp October 23-25. The Blast will open training camp the following week.
“These tryouts are an opportunity for any players who think they have what it takes to be a professional. A lot of times these opportunities do not exist for players, but this is a very real chance to get in front of the Blast coaching staff and see if you have what it takes to be a professional. Sometimes all you need is that one chance to make it happen” 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 Noon on October 18. The application fee is non-refundable.
