Hey, all the weekend forwards, fullbacks, midfielders, and goalkeepers out there...the Baltimore Blast is offering a chance to make your dream of playing professional soccer come true.
The Blast is holding open tryouts Sept. 15 and 16 at the DuBurns Arena, 9 a.m. to noon each day. If you’re a male soccer player, 18 or older and not a college player with remaining eligibility, here's your shot. First, submit a tryout application — with $100 — to the Blast office by 5 p.m. Sept. 4. Walk-in players will not be granted a tryout.
Players will be assessed by the Blast staff, including head coach Danny Kelly, assistant coach David Bascome, and general manager Kevin Healey, according to the Blast’s website. Players making it through the open tryouts will be invited to attend a three-day mini-camp Oct. 10-12. The Blast opens training camp the following week.
“We are looking to provide an opportunity to those players who wouldn’t otherwise get a chance to come out and take a shot at making the Blast,” Kelly said. More information and online application can be found here.
