Newark, NJ. The Newark YMCA will play host to the Final Tryout for the 2006-2007 basketball season for the ABA Newark Express. On Saturday, September 16th, between the hours of 4pm and 8pm, the final players will be selected to attend training camp.
The Newark YMCA has a state-of-the-art Cardiovascular Fitness Center that features more than 25 stations designed for a maximum conditioning and cardio-workout. The Strength Training Center consists of equipment from some of the leading manufacturers such as CYBEX, BodyMaster and a full line of free weights. The four lane Indoor Pool is heated for Y member's comformability and the lap, aquarobics and swim classes for both kids and adults make the Newark Y the popular choice for fun, healthy activities.
The gymnasium that will host the Newark Express tryout, includes two full courts that are available for basketball, volleyball and a variety of other recreational activities. The Y also has two racquetball courts and one squash court, all of which can be reserved in advance for member use.
Conveniently located at 600 Broad Street, in the heart of Newark's newly revitalized downtown business district, the Newark YMCA is home to many ball players looking to stay in shape and hone their skills. The Washington Park Station stop on the newly opened NEWARK Light Rail will leave you across the street from the YMCA.
"Coach Moore knows that there's a lot of players who have talent to play on the professional level, but for whatever reason the opportunity has not been there for them. What we are offering to those players is the chance to continue their basketball careers and follow their dreams," co-owner Marsha Blount stated.
