At the tryouts, players will compete at the following positions: wide receiver/defensive back, quarterback, offensive/defensive line and fullback/linebacker. Following registration, each player will warm up and then be timed and measured in the 40-yard dash, short shuttle and vertical jump. VooDoo coaches will then select candidates to participate in offensive and defensive lines.

Wide receivers, defensive backs and quarterbacks should arrive at 8:00 am for registration. Offensive linemen, defensive linemen, fullbacks and linebackers should arrive at 12:30 pm for registration. Candidates must come dressed and ready to work out and have the appropriate shoes for running on Sprinturf. Kickers will not be evaluated at the camp.
