Halifax Announce Dates for Open Tryout, Training Camp

The Halifax Rainmen have put out a press release announcing their open tryout in Halifax.  The tryout will be on December 1st from 6pm-9pm at Citadel high school.  There will be a $50 tryout fee.

The training camp starts on Tuesday, December 2nd and will run until Saturday the 6th. This is considerably shorter than last year’s very long camp.
I think that this whole process is incredibly short. You’re asking local players who make the team to get a week off work without any notice.  You’re also trying to pick player for a pro team in one night, with only three hours of practice.  When I played Junior High basketball we had longer tryouts than this. I hope/assume that they plan on taking one or two local guys but will invite 4-5 to training camp as a short list and then pick the guys from the team after that.

I hope we see some names of players who have been signed sooner rather than later.

  1. This is good!!! I bet a few players from the area can make the team. Dip isn’t even close to being the best player in the area.
