Below are the sites and dates for 2017 open tryouts. Participants can pre-register for the tryout by completing the form at the bottom of the page. 

Unless otherwise noted, registration begins at 9 a.m., at which time participants will be weighed and measured. Each participant will be put through a number of Canadian Football League-specific athletic tests and drills such as the 40-yard dash, short shuttle, broad jump and vertical jump. No pads are necessary, athletes are in cleats, shorts and T-shirts.

This will be followed by individual position drills and one-on-ones. The cost of the workout is $80 cash per person, payable at registration.
