Arizona Rattlers Holding Open Tryout Saturday Morning

Have you dreamed of playing professional football? You actually have a chance, but it is Arena Football. It is professional football, nonetheless. Saturday morning, starting at 9AM, the Arizona Rattlers are holding open tryouts. Registration begins at 8AM and it will cost $80 in cash or money order.

Per the team press release, the open tryout will be held at Gene Autry Sports Complex (4125 E. McKellips Road, Mesa, Arizona, 85215) on the Rattlers' grass practice field. Participants must bring their own cleats, shorts and accessories. No pads or helmets are required. All camp activity is non-contact.

↵

Participants must show up ready to go, no locker room facilities will be made available. However, bathrooms are available.

So if you have a dream and $80 to burn, show up nice and early in North Mesa. Seems a little on the extreme to charge for a tryout, but if there is anything you can put a price on, it is a dream.

The Rattlers start their 25th season in the AFL this coming March.
