Chase Fieldhouse

Online registration is open to the public at SIXERS.COM/BlueCoats. All participants at the tryouts will receive a Blue Coats practice jersey and a family ticket pack to a future game. Blue Coats and 76ers coaches and staff will be present to evaluate talent. Hx Innovations will be conducting movement analytics and evaluating player performance as well. 

Players must meet all eligibility standards as defined by the NBA. Players must also complete an NBA G League Medical Consent and Authorization and a Release & Eligibility Form.

It is strongly recommended, but not required, that subject to applicable law, team staff and players are up to date on COVID-19 vaccinations to attend a Local Player Tryout. The CDC currently classifies someone as up to date when they have received all doses in the primary series and all boosters recommended for them, when eligible. For more information, visit

The Blue Coats are coming off a historic 2021-22 season, which included a second consecutive birth to the NBA G League Finals, an Eastern Conference title win, and a franchise-record nine NBA Call-Ups.
