The 2019 Grand Blanc Gladiators Tryouts was a huge success! More than 200 players attended the event over three days at Union City Fields, which is the Home of the Gladiators. Several age groups enjoyed tryouts of 40 or more. The Gladiators kicked off the weekend with a Friday night information night to give families the opportunity to meet coaches and ask questions. The 2-day player tryout was scorching hot, however, all players gave it their all. The Gladiators came out of the weekend fielding a total of 13 teams for the 2019 season including multiple teams at several age groups.
"The tryouts were a huge success, especially when you look at other teams around the area, and their tryouts aren't nearly as big. We (Gladiators) are making some noise in the community and people are starting to take notice and it's only going to keep growing", said Vice President Sid Fullwood after the whirlwind weekend.
