Some teams still do hold open tryouts but it is no longer mandatory so not as many teams do as they used to. It is best to keep up to date with their websites, where announcements regarding tryouts will be posted. Tryouts are usually held at the beginning of the training season so make sure you are prepared and do not miss the announcement when it is made.

Here is a website that lists teams, their tryout date, where it will be held, who to contact and how to contact them, usually via phone, email or their website and it usually contains some additional information for you: ifsbfreeagents.com/tryouts.php Most tryouts also have a cost which can range from anywhere between $30 and $100.        

Locals are especially encouraged to try out for their local team to keep a community feeling around the team. Occasionally a professional sports team will hold open tryouts that will allow anyone who wants to come out. However, these are usually publicity stunts to draw attention. Very few athletes get to the pros via this route. Some teams offer training competitions or training camps that are run by the teams’ coaches and if you have a genuine talent, it is likely it will be picked up in one of these training sessions which could potentially lead to a trial.

Training camps can be expensive but can be a good way to meet the right people and learn more about trials and open tryouts. Alternatively, you could contact the team directly by calling them to find out exactly what their policy is regarding open tryout. This could lead to a contact being made and you could even ask for advice on what they will be looking for at tryouts. There could be up to 500 people trying out for one place on the team so you have to show real talent and determination to succeed.

Well I'm 13 years old. And I am just about to go into high school. And I agree with all the other people. I think it requires lots of exercise and training and basically just learning the game. Next year I am going to play fullback and its always been my dream to go into the nfl, just like it is for any other kid. I hope when I'm older at the very least I will be able to play college ball. But right now I am striving to do the best I can in sports. Another huge factor to if you want to play proffesional football is you have to get good grades. I am a straight A student and I hope it will stay that way once I go into high school. But you always have to beleive in yourself and you can't let anyone else you can't do something. Because if you keep telling yourself that you wont succeed or you can't do something you are not going to do it. So ALWAYS have confidence and always beleive in yourself no matter what it is. If you have a dream than chase it. And if you try really hard you will succeed.

Perform; the only word that you will have to follow to get into the National Football League. But performance does not mean that you will have to perform only at once, but you will have to maintain consistency.

Getting into NFL is a big achievement in the life of a player and it requires a good amount of training for over a long period of time. The best thing to do is to start training when you are in school itself. Once you get into college and keep performing well at all times, then it would not be difficult for you university to help you perform in the NFL.

If you are a performer you are among the most sought after person for any university. When the university finds that you are a good performer, the authorities themselves will invest in you and will get a good coach for you and you will be on the right road to NFL.

Well I want to know this also. I am a runningback and a linebacker. Right know I am 11 and I go to the track every other day to work on speed and agility. I also lift weights every other day. I just think that you have to work on your athletic ability and knowledge for the game. When you are athletic and have knowledge for the game the performance will come.

Hey guys, I just want to let you know that you have to work extremely hard and be dedicated.  Here's my story:

I was always one of the fastest kids in my area, would always win races in track, time trials, everything.  I started playing tackle football in 7th Grade and it came very naturally to me.  I was always very good at football and my aspiration was to become a professional player.  Throughout these years and entering into high school I played fullback.  My freshman year I ran a 4.8 40 and was 5' 11" 150 lbs.  I started at fullback the entire year and was playing extremely well, but didn't put any time into the gym.  My sophomore year I ran a 4.4 40 and was 6' 0" 154 lbs.  I switched my position to halfback at this time but didn't get a lot of starting time due to being out of town the first week of practice.  I didn't even play at halfback until the 5th game of the season where I rushed 3 times for 38 yards.  I started going to the gym because I wasn't playing much but I began to see a problem.  No matter how frequently or much I lifted I wasn't gaining weight.  I went into my junior year at 6' 0" 155 lbs and decided I was going to take the year off and try to lift to put on some weight.  I started to do so but yet had the same results.  I was also shot down by my dad and stepmom who told me I would never stick to lifting.  I ended up scrapping football all together and haven't played since then.  In the mean time I continued to participate in swimming, track, and baseball to stay active.  A year out of high school I started looking into Semi-Pro leagues around my area and found a team that was going to guarantee me a starting spot as halfback.  At the time I was still sitting pretty at 6' 0" 154 lbs.  I got a gym membership and started lifting my ass off, every single day for a month and a half straight actually.  I went from 154 lbs to 170 lbs over that course.  The improvements were very noticeable and they were assisted with the help of protein.  I unfortunately hit that cap again, this time being at 170 lbs.  I began to get lazy and missed the season because getting to my target weight of 185 lbs seemed impossible.  The new season is coming up and for the last couple weeks I have been hitting the gym hard.  I was down to about 162 lbs but am back up to 170 again.  I don't know what my 40 time is now but my strength has definitely increased.  I will be sticking with this Semi-Pro league until I get up to 190 lbs, then I will begin finding an open tryout for the NFL.

Moral of the story is if you really want to do it, don't let anyone convince you differently.  The further back you get from your goal the more catch-up you have to play.  I am 21 years old and I attend a technical college, so obviously college football isn't an option for me right now.  And no you do not have to be black, for example, I am white.

First of all you have to be an african-american. Second of all today its all about speed, speed, speed. Get fast as hell, stand out and you can go pro. But the average NFL career is only about 3 years so don't bank on it as a career
