Third Selection: Tryout (サードセレクショントライアウト)- is the third selection of the Blue Lock Project.
Each team of five that cleared the Second Selection starts by playing a match against five of the World's Best. Winning the game is not a necessity, only participation because the match is only meant to assess the final round of strikers. Once finished with the match, the cleared teams go through language education while waiting for every team to finish.
The remaining 35 strikers are then rounded up together and Jinpachi Ego officially announces the top 6 players in Blue Lock. The Top 6 players are then paired up and broken into 3 teams; Team A, Team B, and Team C. The rest of the 29 strikers must then decide who's team they will play on in order to showcase and prove their skills in an attempt to be chosen for the Blue Lock Eleven and get to play against the Japan U-20. Each player only has one game to prove themselves but due to the odd number of players left someone has the chance to prove their skills in two games; that honor goes to the Top 7th player in Blue Lock.
There are 5 matches in this selection and every pair of the Top 6 plays at least 3 games but due to the odd number of players, the pair of Team A must play 4 games. Once the matches are over, the players are to wait for the results and see who is playing on the Blue Lock Eleven.
Once the Blue Lock Eleven are chosen, the entirety of Blue Lock goes through a special supplemental instruction on Flow State and then begin practicing in preparation for the match against the U-20. Even if some players did not make the starting lineup, they still have a chance to make the team by proving themselves in practice.
Only those who show they can "coexist and assert" themselves within the Top 6 will have a chance at being chosen for the Blue Lock Eleven.
