January 15, 2009 – Calling all athletes! Gatorade is creating a web series that spotlights unknown, up and coming, development team, collegiate or everyday athletes who want to compete at an elite level.
Sixteen athletes will attend a LA Bootcamp and eight will be selected to “star” in the web-based reality series. Show judges include track and field champion Jackie Joyner Kersee, Marvin Marinovich (originator of the NFL combine) and a TBD professional trainer.
This is an incredible opportunity for up and coming athletes to be trained by the best and gain exposure for their sport and/or secure future sponsors and gain support to achieve their goals and dreams.
The series is looking for competitors in such sports as basketball, cycling, soccer, softball, martial arts, tennis, track & field, and volleyball. Sorry – winter sport athletes will have to wait.
Male/Female 18 – 35
Interesting story, road blocks i.e. injuries, medical condition, finances
Available for 4 months of training
Athletes based in the Southern California area are invited to a casting session in Los Angeles on Jan 22nd. Athletes who can not make the casting or are out of state, never fear. You can submit an application along with pictures and video clips.
