Glasgow Rocks are holding their annual open trials on Saturday 9th of August..
The try-outs are open to any men over the age of 16 who are willing to commit to practice and compete with the Rocks pro-team on a regular basis. Head Coach, Sterling Davis, and Rocks coaching staff, will be putting potential players through their paces on the day:
“What I am looking for is a player who has some very good playing experience and knowledge of the game. This trial caters more for the player who can see themselves having a career in basketball – not a dream, but a vision. It’s not with the intent of teaching someone how to play but more to sharpen their skills; it’s more geared to getting them to play at a higher level. Over the years, I have had players show up who were just starting to play the game – which was evident in their performance, and that is what we are trying to stay away from. The calibre of our programs, both development and pro-team, have improved drastically over the years. Players who we recruit from this Open Trial play a very significant role in our scheme from start to finish.”
Any Honey Badgers fancy the challenge?? If any of the current roster, or anyone else from Lothian league or beyond, are tempted they can apply here
I was going to apply myself, but when I found out that my perfectly reasonable demands (6 pack of Tennants, bacon roll, fresh pomegranate and mango smoothie, Egyptian cotton headband and locker room heated to 22 °C playing the greatest hits of the fresh prince and jazzy jeff) could not be met, I reluctantly declined.
