The Washington Wizards’ NBA G League affiliate, the Capital City Go-Go are holding the team’s 2021 open local player tryout at the Entertainment and Sports Arena from September 11-12. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the safety of all participants, the tryouts have been divided up into sessions. Each session will only allow 30 players on a first-come, first-served basis based on when they register online for the tryouts.
Dates and times for each session are listed below:
Session 1: Saturday, September 11, 9 A.M. – 12 P.M.
Session 2: Saturday, September 11, 2 P.M. – 5 P.M.
Session 3: Sunday, September 12, 9 A.M. – 12 P.M.
Session 4: Sunday, September 12, 2 P.M. – 5 P.M.
Registration for the tryout is open now. Players wishing to attend the tryout must meet all NBA G League player requirements and complete all steps of the registration process before arriving to their tryout session.
Requirements include showing proof of vaccination in your online application that will be reviewed by the Go-Go organization. A non-refundable registration fee of $200 must be paid in order to participate. Players participating in the tryout will receive a Go-Go jersey and pair of shorts for use during the tryout. There will be parking available on site in the Blue Lot on the day of the tryout. Participants may also travel to the arena using the Metro green line to the Congress Heights station.
The local player tryout is a unique feature of the NBA G League, in which players participate in drills in front of Go-Go personnel for a chance at an invitation to Capital City’s training camp in October. The Go-Go are able to invite up to four players from the tryout to training camp. The tryout will be closed to public viewing and participants will not be permitted to bring guests into the tryout.
