Thursday, September 17, 2009

Tryouts abound for the Erie BayHawks this weekend.

This Saturday and Sunday, the BayHawks will be holding open tryouts. BayHawks coahes John Treloar and Ben McDonald will run the tryouts, however, members from the Cleveland Cavs scouting staff likely also will be on hand to help out.

As of Wednesday, 35 players had already signed up to take part in the tryouts. One member from the 2008-09 team, Jarvis Gunter, is confirmed to be participating in the drills and scrimmages as is Gannon University alum Kyle Goldcamp. The BayHawks expect several more people to sign up in the final days leading up to the tryouts as well as on the day of registration.

The tryouts will be held at Family First Sports Park, 8155 Oliver Road, in Erie. The schedule for the tryouts is as follows:

Saturday, September 19

  • 10 a.m. Player check in and registration.
  • 11 a.m. Session One (player drills and scrimmages)
  • 6 p.m. Session Two (player drills and scrimmages)

Sunday, September 20
  • 9-11:30 a.m. Session Three (player drills and scrimmages)
Additionally, the Erie BayHawks Dance Team is holding its tryouts on Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Dance Vibe Studio, 2307 West 12th St. The BayHawks have also established a partnership agreement with Envy Spa & Salon that includes title sponsorship of the dance team.

So, whether you're a prospective D-League player or dancer, this is a big weekend. Or, if you're a fan of the BayHawks, this is a weekend that will begin to shape the team and game experience for you this upcoming season.
