PHOENIX — The Arizona Rattlers have scheduled an open tryout from 9 a.m.-noon Jan. 11 at the Rivers Edge Sports Complex, 5105 N. Highway 67, in Florissant, Mo.
Anyone interested in joining the world champions in 2015 is encouraged to attend. The Rattlers, one of the most storied franchises in Arena Football League history, have won the last three ArenaBowl championship games.
The cost to participate is $80 (cash only). Registration will begin at 8 a.m. and conclude at 8:55 a.m. Participants must register to take part in the tryout.
Participants must provide their turf shoes or tennis shoes (no molded cleats), shorts and accessories. The tryout is non-contact, so pads and helmets are not necessary.

Arizona turned in one of the most dominating seasons in AFL history in 2014. Under Guy, the Rattlers rolled up 14 straight victories – the best start in league history and the longest winning streak in a single season. The team also had won 18 games in a row dating back to 2013, a league record for the longest overall winning streak.
