Players participating in the tryout will receive a Go-Go jersey and pair of shorts for use during the tryout, as well as a pair of tickets to the Go-Go’s 2022 home opener. Paid parking is available in the parking garage located on Cypress Street and on the surrounding streets of the Entertainment and Sports Arena. Participants may also travel to the arena using the Metro green line to the Congress Heights station.
