Drive Announce 2019 Tryout Dates
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - The Grand Rapids Drive, the Official NBA G League Affiliate of the Detroit Pistons, announced two 2019 open tryout dates earlier today. Pre-registration for both dates is now available. The Grand Rapids tryout will take place Saturday, September 28th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at MSA Woodland - 2100 28th St SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49508. The Detroit tryout will take place the following day, Sunday, September 29th from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Joe Dumars Fieldhouse Detroit - 1120 West State Fair Ave, Detroit, MI 48203. Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. on both days for players to check in.
Drive GM Jon Phelps is excited for his staff to once again facilitate these player tryouts. "We've been fortunate over the last five years to have open tryout participants not only make our roster, but contribute in significant ways to our teams. These tryouts are an important part of our process in filling out our roster and we are excited to see the talent on display this year in Grand Rapids and in Detroit."
Each tryout is limited to 100 participants, who must all meet the NBA G League eligibility requirements. Local player tryouts provide players the opportunity to showcase their skills in front of Grand Rapids Drive and Detroit Pistons coaches and operations staff. All participants for the open tryouts will be eligible to receive an invitation to the Drive's pre-season training camp in October.
To pre-register, participants should submit the required forms along with their $150 non-refundable pre-registration fee. Acceptable forms of payment are cashier's checks, money orders, credit card or cash.
All forms are available at NBAGrandRapids.com and should be mailed to Grand Rapids Drive, Attn: Open Tryout at 40 Monroe Center St. NW Suite 200, Grand Rapids, MI 49503.
The pre-registration deadline for both tryouts is September 20, 2018.
Walkup registration is subject to availability and has a non-refundable fee of $200 at the door the morning of the tryout. Doors will open at 8:30 a.m. with tryouts beginning promptly at 10 a.m.
