Capitols 2021-2022 Tryout Schedule

All tryouts will be from 4:00PM - 8:00PM in the Esports Room (307) at Lanphier High School, except for Fortnite Tryouts and Callbacks.

Overwatch: Monday, August 30th
Rocket League: Tuesday, August 31st
Super Smash Brothers Ultimate: Wednesday, September 1st
Valorant: Thursday, September 2nd
League of Legends: Friday, September 3rd
Fortnite: Saturday, September 4th*
Callbacks: Sunday, September 5th**

* Fortnite tryouts will be played from home due to the high volume of players trying out for the game and the limited space in the Esports Room. Fortnite players should expect to join a Zoom call to get to know the coaching staff during tryouts and cameras will be required on Zoom.

** Callbacks will be scheduled on an individual and team basis as needed. Callbacks are not a cut, rather another opportunity for the coaching staff to see players if they need more time with them. Coach McGhiey will reach out to players throughout the week of tryouts if a callback time needs to be scheduled.
