Based on the surge in Omicron Cases within the past weeks and wanting to keep folks as safe as possible, we are postponing this weekend’s tryout. A revised tryout schedule will be published in the coming days, but we do not anticipate having any tryouts until the weekend after Martin Luther King Day. Registration for the Spring 2022 season will remain open while we are confirming the new tryout schedule.

The rescheduling of tryouts does NOT mean that all Gotham programming over the next coming weeks is postponed. All other scheduled Gotham events are planned to proceed unless explicitly cancelled by the Gotham Leadership group.
