The Blue Coats strongly urge prospective participants to register in advance. Online registration is currently open here. Limited walk-up registration will be accommodated, albeit subject to an additional processing fee. The Blue Coats will reward all participants who take part in these tryouts with a Blue Coats practice jersey as well as a family ticket pack for an upcoming game. Notably, esteemed coaches and personnel from both the Blue Coats and the Philadelphia 76ers will be present at these events, actively assessing the pool of talent.

As a prerequisite for participation, the Blue Coats require players to also adhere to the eligibility standards set forth by the NBA. Additionally, they must complete an NBA G League Medical Consent and Authorization form, alongside a Release & Eligibility Form.

In light of the Blue Coats’ victory in the NBA G League Championship during the 2022-23 season, they are eagerly preparing for the upcoming 2023-24 campaign. The season will open at Chase Fieldhouse in early November, with the team aspiring for a remarkable fourth consecutive trip to the Finals. The comprehensive game schedule will also be unveiled in the upcoming weeks.

Diamond Chiropractic, a community-oriented team of chiropractors, has emerged as a key partner in this endeavor. Driven by a commitment to enhancing the quality of their patients’ lives through preventive measures as well as expert treatment services, Diamond Chiropractic actively collaborates with local organizations to ensure accessibility and affordability.
