The first tryout will be held at 5 p.m. Sunday, July 15, at Grand Sports Arena, 2350 Hassell Road, Hoffman Estates. Players selected from that workout will join the team to participate in a friendly match against the Milwaukee Wave, the MISL defending champions, on Wednesday, July 18, in Milwaukee.

An additional two-day tryout will be held July 28-July 29 at Grand Sports Arena to determine the core roster for the 2012-2013 season, which begins in November.
