Team to Host Four Open Tryout Sessions from September 11-12
WASHINGTON, DC – The Capital City Go-Go, the Washington Wizards’ NBA G League affiliate, will hold the team’s 2021 open local player tryout at the Entertainment and Sports Arena in four separate sessions from September 11-12. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the safety of all participants, each session will only allow 30 players on a first-come, first-served basis.
Session 1: Saturday, September 11, 9 A.M. – 12 P.M.
Session 2: Saturday, September 11, 2 P.M. – 5 P.M.
Session 3: Sunday, September 12, 9 A.M. – 12 P.M.
Session 4: Sunday, September 12, 2 P.M. – 5 P.M.
The local player tryout is a unique feature of the NBA G League, in which players participate in drills in front of Go-Go personnel for a chance at an invitation to Capital City’s training camp in October. The Go-Go are able to invite up to four players from the tryout to training camp.
Registration for the tryout will open today, August 19. Players wishing to attend the tryout must meet all NBA G League player requirements and complete all steps of the registration process located here prior to arriving to their tryout session. A non-refundable registration fee of $200 must be paid in order to participate.
Players participating in the tryout will receive a Go-Go jersey and pair of shorts for use during the tryout. There will be parking available on site in the Blue Lot on the day of the tryout. Participants may also travel to the arena using the Metro green line to the Congress Heights station.
The tryout will be closed to public viewing and participants will not be permitted to bring guests into the tryout. Information regarding media availability and timing will be released at a later date.
