Player Selection

How are players selected for a Lakers team?

Open Tryouts

Open tryouts are held in the Spring each year. The tryouts include drills designed to test players' skills. All players interested in playing with the Glen Ellyn Lakers are required to attend both days of tryouts. Players will be notified within 48 hours after the conclusion of tryouts with our decision. Once they have been notified, they will have 24 hours to accept the position on the team by putting a nonrefundable deposit down. Trainers from Future Pros conduct the tryouts and choose the placement of players.

Supplemental tryouts can be requested at any time during the season. If your son or daughter is interested in a supplemental tryout, please contact Brad Thomas at 630.942.7288 or by email at A supplemental tryout will only be granted if a Lakers team has an available roster position at the age group of the requesting player. If a position is available, we will set up a supplemental tryout with a trainer.
