Blast to Hold Open Tryouts Prior to 2015-16 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 open tryouts will be held October 17-18 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 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 head coach Danny Kelly and assistant coach David Bascome and General Manager Kevin Healey. Players who make it through the open tryouts will attend a three-day invite mini camp which will tentatively run October 21-23.
"Baltimore has always been an area with great local talent, and the homegrown players who have represented the Blast in the past have had a major impact on our success. We're continually on the lookout for talented local players, and the open tryout is an opportunity for these players to come in and showcase their talents. Those players that show well will be invited into training camp with the possibility of earning a spot on the team." 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 14th. Applications are available HERE
