Cities and Dates CFL Teams Are Holding Open Tryouts

It’s scouting season in the CFL. In addition to attending numerous pro days across the country, it is common for CFL teams to hold open tryouts in various cities throughout the United States as they aim to discover new talent.

Currently, 6 out of the 9 CFL teams have a series of open tryouts scheduled. The 3 teams that do not have open tryouts scheduled are the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Toronto Argonauts, and the Ottawa Red Blacks. Every team in the West Division is holding open tryouts, while Montreal is the only East Division team to be doing so.

Atlanta, Georgia, and the Dallas, Texas area are the most popular stops this year as both locations have 5 CFL teams holding open tryouts in these locations.

Some teams are not working out certain position groups such as Montreal is not working out any kickers, punters, or snappers at these tryouts. Currently, in Montreal, there are 2 punters and a kicker on the roster with a global status and 1 kicker who has a national designation. It seems safe to assume they are not looking to use an American roster designation on the kicking or punting position.
