Rattlers Announce Open Tryout for March 18

 

Phoenix, Ariz. – The Arizona Rattlers have scheduled an open tryout beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at the Gene Autry Sports Complex, 4125 E. McKellips Road, Mesa.

In the last two seasons, ten participants in the tryouts earned a contract to participate in training camp, six of whom made it on to the active roster.  Joe Matthews, an open tryout participant last offseason, ended up being featured on ESPN’s SportsCenter’s Top 10 Plays.

Registration will begin at 8 a.m. and conclude at 8:55 a.m. Participants must register to take part in the tryout.

The cost to participate is $80 (only cash or money order will be accepted, no personal checks).

Participants must provide their own cleats, shorts and accessories. The tryout is non-contact, so pads and helmets are not necessary.

Participants also must be prepared upon their arrival — no locker room facilities will be available, although restrooms will be accessible.

The coaching staff, including general manager and head coach Kevin Guy, will evaluate participants in the 40-yard dash, short shuttles and position drills.
