More Slaughter Tryouts

IMG_3719eSmall.jpgIf your New Year's Resolution was to become a professional football player, it may not be so far fetched. The Chicago Slaughter will hold their second free agent camp on Saturday, January 9, noon to 4 p.m., at the Megaplex Sports Complex, 15301 S. Bell Rd., Homer Glen, Illinois. The camp, open to players 18 and older of all skill levels, will be conducted by Slaughter head coach Steve McMichael and the team's coaching staff. There's a camp fee of $50 per person, but players who prepay get a discount on tryout fees. You have to supply your own workout attire and cleats for the session at the indoor facility. To register, call the Slaughter office at (847) 310-3190. Completed tryout forms (available on the Slaughter website) can be faxed to the Slaughter front office (1-847-310-3199) or mailed to 1055 W. Golf Road, Hoffman Estates, Ill., 60169. Resume and highlight video clips can be emailed to Slaughter General Manager Alan Perkins.

"We are very excited to announce our second tryout for the 2010 season," said Perkins. "You simply don't know where the next great player may come from. Our first tryout was very successful and I believe this one will be just as positive."
