Slaughter Thu Dec 10 2009

Second Chance To Prove You Are Slaughter Material

images.jpeg Second chances don't come around often, but when they do ...don't miss out! The Chicago Slaughter, 2009 CIFL Champions and current member of the Indoor Football League (IFL), are hosting another open try out in early 2010.

The Slaughter are looking for talented, new athletes who are at least 18 years old and have a hunger to start their indoor football career! Try outs will be held on January 9 from noon until 4 p.m. at the Megaplex in Hoffman Estates - so you'll have over a week to recover from New Years festivities. All players must bring their own gear and be ready for evaluation by Chicago Bears Super Bowl XX Champion Steve "Mongo" McMichael, a member of the Slaughter coaching staff.

Registration is $50 per person but those who pre-pay will receive a discount. For more information on the Slaughter and try out camp call (847) 310-3190 or visit the Slaughter website.
