The talent call is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 10, in Fairburn.

The planned Atlanta franchise of the Lingerie Football League, which has scheduled two games in Gwinnett in 2013, has announced an open tryout date in the Atlanta area in November.

According to a league news release, the tryout will be on Saturday, Nov. 10 in Fairburn, which is in southeast Fulton County. The location will be Score Indoor, 1245 Oakley Industrial Boulevard, 30213. The session begins at 1 p.m.

"We know that 99.9 percent of you guys have never touched a football ..."

"I have so much heart for this ..."

These are some of the quotes from an attached YouTube video of a Baltimore Charm tryout.

---

Participants are asked to wear athletic gear, and arrive an hour before the session begins. Applicants will be judged on agility, speed, strength and focus.

-- Do you plan to try out for the new Atlanta LFL team? Tell us in the comments below.

The tryout application can be downloaded here, and should be brought to the session.

Those selected at the tryout will advance to an Atlanta mini-camp; no details have been announced for that.

The LFL has scheduled games for April 13 and May 18 at the Gwinnett Arena in 2013.

In the LFL, football is seven on seven, with no punting or field goals. The league currently has 12 teams, divided into four divisions. Team nicknames include Sin, Temptation and Charm.

Also, the league is conducting a "name the team" contest for Atlanta.
