Professional Football Tryout Information
Each month we receive hundreds of calls from Athletes regarding league tryout schedules and location. We created a INTERNET link based system for Athletes and Agents to use. This will save you hours of searching for camp tryout information and ensure you do not miss ones in your area.
Each league and their individual teams may have varying times and procedures. Some request you pay a fee, some require you to pre-register ahead of time, many require some travel, some are invitation only, etc. The CFL for example does not hold league tryouts but their teams have tryouts scheduled throughout the US. Your agent is normally the best qualified and knowledgeable person on the various leagues and their policies. If you do not have an agent you can request an agent(s) to contact you by clicking menu item, “Athletes looking for Agents”, “Football” on www.prosportsgroup.com. You can possible be successful going it alone but an informed and educated agent is worth more than his fee.
Before you contact a team or league you need to make sure you meet the minimum requirements they establish. Some leagues may have an age requirement, others a minimum of a college degree or playing experience. Do not waste your time, or money, and certainly not the agents or the teams. Be informed by reading their posted web site information and instructions! Take notes, when reading the requirements. A spiral notebook purchased at any office or school supply store is more than adequate.
You are interviewing for a job so you should desire to create the most professional resume, bio, and appearance within your resources. If you want to be a professional athlete then people will need to see you as a professional. Slackers, or out of shape players are a waste of tryout organizers time. You may not get a second chance.
If you want this as bad as most claim to, get in shape, stay in shape, eat right, and be prepared! Be in shape for your position not just “IN SHAPE”. Your desire and drive to win shows itself in whether you are in shape of not. This is a very competitive market place with thousands of athletes wanting to advance. Do not embarrass yourself or others who support you. There are coaches and camps that can develop a program for you prior to going to a try out. Please take advantage of them if at all possible.
For the NFL, to really get a chance you must score high at the Combine and have a qualified agent! There are “PRO” days at colleges for those not invited to the combine. Now you can find this information in one location for a small fee. ” The Football Tryout Links Package”.
