The Albany Arena Football franchise has yet to decide to on a nickname for the 2018 season but they have decided on a time and date for open tryouts. According to AlbanyAfl.com the franchise will hold open tryouts on Saturday, January 27th at Sportsplex at Halfmoon located at 6 Corporate Drive, Clifton, NY 12065. Registration begins at 8 AM with stretching getting underway at 9 AM. Head Coach Rob Keefe said this about the January open tryout.

I am excited to see what kind of talent the Capital Region has. We expect a large turnout and we will be properly staffed to evaluate everybody. We have yet to sign a single player for the 2018 season. The more local talent we can find that can perform at a championship level in this league, the better. It's going to be a monumental day for this organization

Players will be tested on their 40-yard dash time and short shuttle with other position-specific drills and one-on-ones to follow. All positions will be evaluated in tryouts- QB, WR, FB, DB, LB, DL & OL and K. A pre-registration fee of $65 will be issued to potential recruits. Registration after that time and the day of will require an application fee of $80.
