UB Mingoes offer tryouts for aspiring student-athletes

The University of The Bahamas (UB) Mingoes are looking to refresh and expand its athletics talent. Prospective student-athletes have a fresh opportunity to demonstrate their prowess for the university’s athletics department during tryouts scheduled to be held at St. George’s High School sporting facility in Grand Bahama on Saturday, January 20.

High school coaches, administrators, student-athletes and parents, are invited to take advantage of the opportunities to participate and find out more about UB athletics, academics, scholarships and financial aid.

Tryouts for men’s basketball will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at the St. George’s High School Gymnasium, tryouts for women’s volleyball will be held from 12 noon to 2 p.m. at the gymnasium, tryouts for women’s softball will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at the school’s softball field, and tryouts for men’s soccer will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 noon at the school’s soccer field.

At home and abroad, the UB Mingoes have been making significant strides toward becoming a full-fledged intercollegiate athletics body.

“Mingoes athletics has and continues to trend upward,” said UB Athletic Director Kimberley Rolle. “Our teams are improving every year, we’re landing top notch recruits, our international schedules are expanding, and we are very optimistic about the university’s prospects of aligning our athletic program with an international body. We are extremely excited about our teams this year and we are always looking for talent to infuse into those teams on an annual basis.”

UB Mingoes coaches want to recruit prospective student-athletes with the requisite skills to play at the collegiate level. Financial aid is available for prospects who meet the athletic and academic criteria.

Recent graduates who have completed high school within the past two to three years are also invited to participate in the tryouts.

The university’s head coaches for men’s basketball, men’s soccer, women’s volleyball and women’s softball will all be in Grand Bahama for the tryouts this weekend.
