jax tryouts dates

JACKSONVILLE –  The 2017 National Arena League Champion Jacksonville Sharks announced today that they will hold open player tryouts from September 2017 to February 2018. The team will tour 20 cities to allow players from all over the United States a chance to try out for the Jacksonville Sharks. The Open Tryout Tour will begin in Orlando, FL Saturday, September 2 and end in Jacksonville, FL Saturday, February 17. During that span the Sharks will go to 13 states to evaluate players during single day open tryout sessions led by Head Coach Siaha Burley. A full list of locations and dates for the Open Tryout Tour can be found below.

Pre-Registration for the tryouts can be found online at jaxsharks.com/team/tryouts. Pre-Registration is the preferred method for tryouts and includes a $70 registration fee. Pre-Registration for a tryout location will end seven-days prior to each open tryout and players are allowed to sign up for multiple tryout locations. Any players that sign up for an open tryout during the week of the open tryout will be charged a $80 registration fee. Walk-In registration will be accepted with a $100 registration fee. All players attending an open tryout must arrive at the registration table prior to the open tryout by 8:00 a.m. with their open tryout “One Day Waiver” and their photo I.D. The workout is set to start promptly at 9:00 a.m. The tryout will conclude once each player has been properly evaluated by head coach Siaha Burley and the Sharks coaching staff.

Those wishing to participate in the tryout must complete their Pre-Registration form online prior to the open tryout or complete the Walk-In Registration form on the day of the tryout. Players that do not complete their Pre-Registration and submit their registration fee will be asked to complete the Walk-In Registration form and pay the Walk-In fee. Money order or cashier’s checks made out to the Jacksonville Sharks will be the only form of payment accepted on the day of the tryout.

This year’s tryouts will consist of a combination of drills, including the 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle and various position-specific drills. Please note that the tryouts will take place on either natural grass or turf surfaces and players are required to bring appropriate footwear.

The tryout is open to anyone over the age of 18 who has completed high school and is not currently under contract with any professional football team.

Detailed information on the tryout locations and additional information  will be available online at jaxsharks.com/team/tryouts.
