2023 was a GREAT year for our tournament teams, including two Pride Bowl Championships, a Gay Bowl Championship appearance, and countless league milestones.
As we look to build off the success of our 2023 showings, we'll be jumping into 2024 tournament preparations a little earlier than usual and with exciting plans for an expansion of our Women's+ tournament program.
Any player who wants to be considered for our 2024 Pride Bowl or Gay Bowl teams must complete this tournament interest form. In addition to the form, we'll be holding tryouts to ensure that everyone who wants to show off their skills has an opportunity to do so. Tryouts are not mandatory, but strongly encouraged.
Tryouts for our Open Division and Women's+ Pride Bowl and Gay Bowl tournament teams will be Sunday, November 19 from 1-3pm at our fields in Warwick.
Holding the tryouts in November (instead of waiting until January/February as we did this year) allows us to 1) hold tryouts outside, where we have more space, time equipment, etc. 2) allows players to try out while they're still fresh from a season of football, instead of during the middle of winter 3) makes it easier for players to plan ahead/budget for tournaments, and 4) allows the tournament teams to practice throughout the winter and start team building activities. We believe this will make our teams even stronger next year.
More information about tournament logistics and an explanation of how teams are selected will be shared in the coming weeks. For now, we just want to put the tryout date out there so you can plan ahead.
