Jacksonville, FL - The Jacksonville Sharks of the Arena Football 1 (AF1) league announce the first open tryout for prospective players to be held on January 8th.
The tryouts will begin at 8:00 am and continue through the day until all players have been evaluated thoroughly by Head Coach Les Moss and the Sharks coaching staff.
The tryouts will be a combination of drills including the 40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle, and various position-specific drills.
The coaching staff will be evaluating each potential Shark during the exercises. The open tryout is for any person who still has a dream of lacing up their pads and winning a championship.
The tryouts will be held January 8th at Plantation Park, located at 3060 Racetrack Rd, St. Johns, FL 32259. Registration will begin at 8 am with the combine starting at 9 am. The coaching staff will remain until all players have been evaluated.
To become a Jacksonville Shark, bring a completed tryout packet - found at jaxsharks.com - to the tryout along with $80 cash or money order (no checks or credit cards will be accepted).
There will be no need for pads or helmets as most drills will be non-contact. Coach Moss recommends bringing both cleats and turf or running shoes, as the tryout will be held on field turf.
Please bring plenty of water to stay hydrated.
