The planned Atlanta franchise of the Lingerie Football League, which has scheduled two games in Gwinnett in 2013, has announced an open tryout date in the Atlanta area in November.
According to a league news release, the tryout will be on Saturday, Nov. 10 in Fairburn, which is in southeast Fulton County. The location will be Score Indoor, 1245 Oakley Industrial Boulevard, 30213. The session begins at 1 p.m.
Participants are asked to wear athletic gear, and arrive an hour before the session begins. Applicants will be judged on agility, speed, strength and focus.
The tryout application can be downloaded here, and should be brought to the session.
Those selected at the tryout will advance to an Atlanta mini-camp; no details have been announced for that.
The LFL has scheduled games for April 13 and May 18 at the Gwinnett Arena in 2013.
In the LFL, football is seven on seven, with no punting or field goals. The league currently has 12 teams, divided into four divisions. Team nicknames include Sin, Temptation and Charm.
On Oct. 31, LFL officials announced the league had received nearly 4,300 name suggestions for the new Atlanta team. The name most often submitted -- the Atlanta Steam.
"The Atlanta name submission was one of the most successful team name submission responses of any LFL expansion market," officials stated in a press release. "Additionally, LFL league offices have received greater interest from prospective players than in any other market in the history of the league."
In an Oct. 3 article, we asked Dacula Patch readers to share their name suggestions for the new Atlanta team. Suggestions included:
