Twisters to Host Free Agent Tryout
Wednesday October 22, 2008
(North Little Rock, AR) - In a continuing effort to add talent and strive for an ArenaCup championship, the Arkansas Twisters of the arenafootball2 league have scheduled a free agent tryout camp on Saturday, November 22, 2008. The tryout camp will be held at Pulaski Academy High School located at 12701 Hinson Road in Little Rock. Participants are asked to park in the lot between the two facilities. The camp will be under the direction of new Twisters Head Coach Chris Siegfried and his coaching staff.
The format will consist of a variety of physical tests, including the 40 yard dash, 20 yard shuttle and the standing long jump. Participants will be timed and measured in all of these events. After an evaluation of each participant’s times and scores, the group will be reduced to a number of individuals who will be asked to participate in select physical drills. Another evaluation will leave the remaining to participate in skill drills which are related to Arena Football. There will not be any contact drills.
The cost of the camp is $40 cash per individual. Registration will begin promptly at 8:00 am until 9:00 am. A thirty minute period of supervised warm-up drills will follow. Testing will begin at 9:30 am.
The camp is open to anyone who has completed their college eligibility and is physically able to perform the drills. A waiver and release form will be signed by all participants stating that they are physically able to participate and not hold the Arkansas Twister liable for any injury suffered during the camp.
Participants need to provide their own workout attire. Shorts and t-shirts along with turf or tennis shoes are recommended as the camps will be conducted on an artificial surface. Rubber molded football cleats no longer than one half inch will be permitted for tryouts. Metal football cleats are absolutely forbidden and you will not be allowed to participate. Participation in the free-agent camp is not an offer of employment but merely an evaluation. By the conclusion of the camp, everyone will have been advised of their results. The Arkansas Twisters are not responsible for travel or lodging expenses. Food will not be provided.
