Austin Toros Local Player Tryouts Scheduled for October

Austin, TX (August 20, 2008) – The Toros will host local player tryouts on October 4th in Austin at Concordia University in Woltman Gymnasium, 11400 Concordia University Dr. and October 26th in San Antonio at S.A. Factory of Champions, 8227 Broadway St. For both events, registration begins at 9:00 a.m. and the tryout will last the entire day.

“The local tryout is a unique and important component of the development league philosophy. There are many people playing basketball around the world, but there are very few chances for young men to showcase their talents in an environment like this opportunity provides,” said Head Coach Quin Snyder.

Last year, Austin tryout attendees, forward, Tim Bush and guard, Patrick Fields made training camp and the Toros opening day roster.

“To see the effort and dreams of many of these guys is inspiring whether they succeed in making the Toros or not,” continued Snyder.

Local player tryouts provide players an opportunity to showcase their skills in front of the Toros coaching staff and local basketball coaches. Attendees compete to earn an invitation to the Toros training camp in November.

This will be the fourth annual local player tryouts for the Toros.

Tryout participants should submit the required registration, disclosure and release forms, along with a $150 non-refundable fee by September 29th. Acceptable forms of payment are a cashier’s check or money order. Registration is $175 after September 29th. Tryouts are limited to the first 100 registered players. All required forms are available at www.austintoros.com or by calling the Toros office at (512) 236-8333.
