The Butler women’s basketball program will be offering open tryouts on Friday, Sept. 20 in the Efroymson Family Gym in Hinkle Fieldhouse at 5:30 p.m.
Anyone is welcome to attend.
Head coach Beth Couture said the tryouts give students an opportunity to show their skills.
“We want to give anybody a chance to see if their skill level is high enough to participate,” Couture said.
Open tryouts have been held in the past and will continue to be held on an annual basis.
They consist of drills and other activities to test skill level.
Couture doesn’t underestimate the value that a walk-on can bring to the team.
“They’re playing without money and with the desire just to play,” Couture said. “At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if somebody’s played 40 minutes or not played. Every part of our team has to do with us being successful.”
While the team has had walk-ons before, Couture said none have ever come from open tryouts.
Interested parties should contact graduate assistant Jacob DeWilde at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for registration is this Friday, Sept. 13.
