The Capital City Go-Go, the Washington Wizards’ NBA G League affiliate, will hold the team’s 2019 open local player tryout at the Entertainment and Sports Arena on Saturday, September 21 beginning at 9:00 a.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.
In 2018, Isaiah Armwood, Mike Davis, Dominic Phillips, and Devin Sweetney all received invites to Go-Go training camp following their local tryouts. Armwood, Davis, and Sweetney appeared in a combined 75 games during the season. Armwood proved as an instrumental piece to the team, starting in 20 games and averaging 11.4 points and 8.6 rebounds per game in those contests.
Registration for the tryout will open today, September 3. 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 the tryout on September 21. A non-refundable registration fee of $200 must be paid in order to participate. Registration for the tryout will close on Wednesday, September 18 at 5:00 p.m. Spots are limited to the tryout and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Players participating in the tryout will receive a Go-Go jersey and pair of shorts for use during the tryout and will also receive a complimentary ticket to a Go-Go home game during the 2019-20 season.
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.
