The Baltimore Cougars Legends basketball program will hold tryouts for a new women’s development league team this month.
“This is the first team we’re going to have in Maryland,” said Tamara (Rogers) Moore, the director of the Baltimore Cougars Legends, “but everyone from my coaching staff and me have already run a team before. My coaching staff is coming from the Asheville Jaguars from the same league, so they have experience in the this league already.”
Players must have college experience and be 20 or older to play on the team that will be part of the Women’s Blue-Chip Basketball League. Tryouts will be held Nov. 19 from 9 to 11 a.m. and Nov. 20 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Leadership Through Athletics Inc., 2900 Hammonds Ferry Road in Lansdowne.
“It’s a competitive tryout, so it’s just like a WNBA tryout or overseas tryout. They’re going to be competing the whole time,” said Moore, who helped Milford Mill win a state championship her senior year in 2005.
The Women’s Blue-Chip Basketball League is a developmental league that offers players the chance to be seen by scouts from professional teams in the United States and overseas. The league includes players from all levels of college as well as former WNBA players and others who have played professionally.
The season runs from mid-May to early August.
While the WBCBL provides the opportunities, players are on their own if offered a professional contract.
Players should be at the gym 30 minutes before tryouts. The fee is $35 before Nov. 17 and $45 on the day of the tryout. Players can register at https://form.jotform.com/bclcougars/Player.
