The Cleveland Gladiators will be hosting open player tryouts this Sunday, December 9th, providing an exciting opportunity for players to compete for a chance to make the team’s 2013 roster.
Tryouts will take place at the team’s official practice facility, MultiPlex Events & Sports Center at The Word Church (18909 South Miles Rd, Warrensville Heights, 44128). Registration will be 8:00 – 9:00 a.m. ($75.00 fee), followed by tryouts 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
