Open Gym + Tryout Prep


SMASH coaches will be hosting open gym time as an opportunity to get in some game play before tryouts. As SMASH tryouts contain many game-play assessments, practice in these scenarios is something we highly recommend in any form.

* Please note, this is a tryout prep, not a clinic, also not a tryout with assessment
