From the Phoenix Mercury - old news, but newly relevant:
The Phoenix Mercury will be holding open tryouts for WNBA hopefuls on May 2 beginning at 9 a.m. at US Airways Center. From the participants, two women will be chosen to participate in preseason workouts with members of the Phoenix Mercury and its coaching staff at US Airways Center.
Women 18 years and older can register to participate in an instruction and drill session hosted by Phoenix Mercury Head Coach Corey Gaines, General Manager Ann Meyers Drysdale and the Mercury coaching staff. The top 16 participants will be invited back to scrimmage at 6 p.m. Coaches will evaluate each player and select the two people to join the team for workouts in May.
Hey, Atlanta Dream organization! Why can't we do something like this? We've got one open spot for training camp! Maybe we could give recent graduate Jacqua Williams of Georgia Tech an invite to camp? She's better than someone off the street!
