The Maryland Black Bears host three open tryouts each summer (two pre-draft and one post-draft) and concludes with one invite-only main camp in late July. Players from each open camp will be selected to attend the main camp. In 2018, Coach Mylymok signed players to tenders directly out of pre-draft camps and many others earned invites to main camp in July.
