New Orleans VooDoo To Hold Open Tryouts On January 20

The New Orleans VooDoo will hold its second open tryout of the 2013 season on Sunday, January 20 at Pan American Stadium in City Park. Registration will begin at 9 a.m. with the tryout starting at 10 a.m.
Registration fee for all trying out will be $60 and due at the registration table prior to participating in the work out. The registration fee is non-refundable, and only cash will be accepted as a form of payment. Kickers WILL NOT be worked out at this tryout.
"Last year, we had a very talented crop of athletes attend our tryouts, and we invited two players from the tryouts to come to training camp with us," said VooDoo Head Coach Pat O'Hara. "Louisiana produces so many talented and gifted athletes, and we are hoping to find those hidden gems, and those who are looking for an opportunity to showcase themselves."
In addition to the registration fee, all participants will need to bring outdoor cleats to wear on a field turf surface, and other proper athletic attire for the outdoors. The tryout will consist of testing that includes the 40-yard dash and 20-yard short shuttle followed by specific arena football drills.
Those attending the tryout from outside the metro area and are looking for a hotel should contact the Ramada Inn in Metairie (504-835-4141) for special rates. The Ramada Inn has set aside a block of hotel rooms at a special rate while supplies last.
