Pre-Tryout Open Plays

About Pre-Tryout Open Plays

Before the start of each new season, Gotham offers Pre-Tryout Open Plays for players registered to try out for specific Gotham Divisions. These open plays provide opportunities for Captains-elect and aspiring players to meet and greet, to scout and be scouted. To promote and protect the special purpose behind this less-common Open Play format, the players who will be trying out for any of the upcoming season’s Divisions for which the Open Play is designed to be a showcase of skills, will receive priority in our registration process over the Captains themselves. Players are encouraged to wear their tryout numbers during the Open Play, and Captains are encouraged to come scout and take notes. Captains are asked *not* to register and play in the open play, unless they are also registered and committed to try out for a higher division. Captains who wish to play while scouting, are welcome to come register in person at the start of the open play, but only if spots remain available for purchase.

Adjusted format for Division 1-3 and 4-6 Pre-Tryout Open Plays:
These Open Plays will have two sessions, which are shorter in length, and have a lower cap of players (24 vs 32). With this change, you get the same amount of court time, but in a more concentrated session. As you register, select your preferred time. If one session sells out, there may still be spots available in the other session, and you may try to purchase a spot in that other session.
