Do you think you have what it takes to play with the big boys?
The Sioux Falls Skyforce of the D-League are holding open tryouts in the cities of each of their NBA affiliates and that means that this very Sunday they will be in Miami to see the best of what the area has to offer. Players will have the unique opportunity to showcase their skills to the Skyforce coaching staff for a chance to be invited to training camp in November.
Tryouts are scheduled to take place this Sunday, October 14th at the Jose Marti Gym located at 434 SW 3rd Ave., Miami, FL 33130. Registration begins at 8:00 AM and there is a league-mandated $150 cost (in order to root out the pretenders, you know who you are). Tryouts will take place from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
Applicants must be eligible to play in the NBA Development League and are required to pre-register by submitting the official registration and release forms (available right here) along with the nonrefundable fee.
Remember that registration is at 8:00 AM so if you live far away or don't think you'll be able to get there in time from your home, you can get a special discounted rate (just mention "Skyforce Open Tryout" ) at the Extended Stay America in Miami-South-Brickell (298 SW 15th St., Miami, FL 33129 • Phone: 305-856-3700) that's just a few minutes away from the gym.
Good luck to those who participate!
