Arena Football League Cleveland Gladiators

Gladiators To Host Free Agent Combine January 21st

The Cleveland Gladiators will host a combine for all free agents at Lost Nation Sports Park West in Lorain, OH on Saturday, Jan. 21.

Players can register early by visiting clevelandgladiators.com and clicking the combine link in the middle of the page.

Players doing this will pay $75 to register. Anyone that would like to attend the combine and is not registered by Jan. 20 will have to register at the combine, where it will cost $80 and only cash will be accepted at that time.

All free agents are expected to check in starting at 8 a.m. ET with the tryout starting at 9 a.m. The combine will last until 1 p.m.

Coaches will provide in-depth football instructions and will run hopefuls through various football drills. Players are asked to wear comfortable sports wear and athletic shoes. The whole combine will be on field turf, so no cleats are needed or allowed.

Kickers will not been seen on this day. The Gladiators plan to release a date for a kickers tryout in the near future.

Players will be able to draw inspiration from former tryout success story and current defensive back coach Dominic Jones. Jones made the Glads after a tryout in 2011. He went on to play four seasons with Cleveland (2012-2015), setting two Gladiators records.

Jones was also named All Arena as a kick returner during the 2014 season. That season was a franchise-high point that saw Cleveland go 17-1 during the regular season, another Cleveland record breaker.

The exact address where the combine will be held is 4397 N. Leavitt Road, Lorain, OH 44053.
