If you’re like me, you’ve always wanted to take to the skies and dunk basketballs while doing flips. Unfortunately, if you’re like me, you can barely even touch the rim, making it nearly impossible that you will ever really be “throwing it down”.

That can all change if you become a French Quarter Flyer! Train for it tonight and on the 22nd, and then show the world what you’re made of on the 29th.

If you’re planning to try out let us know and we’ll try to make it to the auditions. Full details after the jump.

The New Orleans Hornets will hold auditions for the 2011-12 French Quarter Flyers Dunk Team Thursday, Sept. 29 at 6:30 p.m. at the Alario Center (2000 Segnette Blvd., Westwego, La.)

The Hornets are looking for athletic and energetic performers to join their trampoline dunk team, the French Quarter Flyers. Team members will be a part of high-flying, acrobatic dunk performances at Hornets games, as well as at appearances in the community. The team will perform alongside the NBA’s three-time Slam Dunk Champion, Super Hugo.

Applicants interested in being a member of the French Quarter Flyers will have the opportunity to participate in two training sessions. The Hornets will hold these sessions tonight and Thursday, Sept. 22 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Alario Center. The price for one session is $25 or $40 for both training sessions.

Pre-registration is encouraged. Application forms, details on the audition process and audition tips are available at Hornets.com.
