A new episode of TRYOUTS debuts weekly on ESPN+ on Wednesdays, beginning April 10, 2024:

"Long Beach Lifeguards" (Wednesday, April 10, 2024): This is no Hollywood movie. The Long Beach, California Lifeguards are the real deal. To earn a spot on this elite rescue team, candidates must prove they have the physical and mental fortitude to endure the ocean, and make quick, lifesaving decisions. Nearly 100 applicants test their abilities swimming and running, as well as a high-pressure interview, to prove they have what it takes to be a Long Beach Lifeguard.

"Texas Tech Co-Ed Cheer" (Wednesday, April 17, 2024): Texas Tech University Co-Ed Cheer has become one of the nation's top cheerleading programs, and to make the squad you must be among the most elite. Whether you're a three-year returner or an incoming freshman, everyone must try out to earn their spot. Hopefuls must overcome fears, doubt, and past mistakes to prove to legendary coach, Bruce Bills, they can perform up to Texas Tech Cheer standards.

"Monster Jam" (Wednesday, April 24, 2024): Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! Four drivers strap in behind the wheel of a 1,500 horsepower, six-ton Monster Truck and go full throttle towards their dream of becoming a Monster Jam driver.

They've got one shot to master these machines, when trucks fly.

"Texas Smoke Softball" (Wednesday, May 1, 2024): The Texas Smoke -- owned by former MLB star Brandon Phillips -- are the latest team in the upstart Women's Pro Fastpitch softball league. The Smoke invites 19 players to try out for the final roster in the team's inaugural season. From past Women's College World Series stars to small school underdogs, invitees take the field to show they've got the game to keep their pro dreams alive.

"Mark Morris Dance Group" (Wednesday, May 8, 2024): Earning a company position in the Mark Morris Dance Group is a career defining moment for any dancer. Hundreds of performers arrive in NYC to audition for this highly coveted role.

"USA Ultimate" (Wednesday, May 15, 2024): In the international sport of Ultimate, no country has been more dominant than Team USA at the U-24 level. With the World Championships on the horizon, follow four hopefuls as they battle tough conditions, injuries, and the top Ultimate players in the country, to prove they deserve to make the team. See who survives the cut as coaches make final roster decisions on who will represent the U.S. and help bring home yet another gold medal.
