I know football season is about to get started and the Jills will be in Toronto with the Bills Thursday night before their first home game on the 28th but it's also time to look at re-stocking the Bandettes roster. Today, tryout dates were set for the 2011 Bandettes roster and there are definitely going to be some spots up for grabs as captain Meghan and veterans Amanda and Alexis already decided not to return to the squad. Add into that the fact that choreographer Erin Y suited up on occasion to fill in for a rookie who left the squad unexpectedly last year and we'll be looking at a minimum of 4 rookies on the squad. And keep in mind that veterans do still have to try out to keep their spots so the number could be higher.
Anyway, the weekend of October 2 and 3rd is the weekend to set aside for anyone looking to try out for the top dance team in the NLL. On the 2nd, prospective Bandettes will learn a routine from the choreographers from noon to 3pm at Gold's Gym on French Road in Depew. The following day, they'll perform the routine and interview with the judges also at Gold's Gym. The 2011 team will be announced that evening.
