BayHawks to Hold Team Tryouts & Dance Team Auditions

The Erie BayHawks, presented by LECOM, will host two tryouts to give players the opportunity to earn an invitation to the team’s training camp this season. Tryouts will be held in both Erie and New York City, home of the BayHawks NBA affiliate New York Knicks.

The New York tryout is set for Monday, September 26, 8 am – 3 pm at Baruch College in Manhattan. Registration begins at 7:30 am.

The Erie tryout is Sunday, October 9, 9:30 am – 6 pm at Family First Sports Park on Oliver Road. Registration begins at 9 am.

The cost for each tryout is $150 and pre-registration is encouraged as space is limited.

Last season, University of Akron graduate Nate Linhart earned a spot on the team’s roster after attending Erie’s open tryout in Cleveland. Linhart started 41 games for the BayHawks and averaged 10.5 points and 5.8 rebounds in 33.3 minutes per game.

The team will also host an audition for the BayHawks Dance Team. All ladies over the age of 18 are welcome to participate in the free audition which will be held at Best Fitness on Sunday, September 25 from 3 - 6 pm.

All applicants for both the BayHawks and the Dance Team must fill out the appropriate registration form below. Pre-registration is encouraged for all events.
