it is much faster getting on a team but if you want to start a team , The first thing to do is hold try outs . Get the word out to all the players you know and hand out flyers to shops and fealds. Then pick up the good players . Remember they don't have to be great but try to get players with potential[sp] To become great. Then start playing local tornys . You cant get sponsers without winning . then when you start winning alot aprouch compenies for sponsership.

Hope that helps

Alex

I live in the middle of ****ing nowhere. Tthe teams that have wanted me to be on there teams are like a hour and a half away and my parents wont let me practise that far away. They wanted to practise on weekdays and stuff along with weekends. I also wrestle, play football, play basketball, and I play hockey. What should I do.

You sound like myself. I start on the football and track team at high school and snowboard pretty hardcore in the winter. Since my parents dont support my hobby of paintball at all you can see the problem here. I cant work enough to pay for paintball at the level I want to play at. I dont have enough time to work to finance how expensive paintball is with all my other things. So I sold my semi and went to a pump. Its nice play all day on 15 bucks heh. I plan to play pump tourneys with my friends and when I go to college Ill get back into the major tourney semi scene when I can afford it.

Well you are kinda screwd then. Not to be mean. If you cant get to any teams around your area then it makes it much harder. All I have to say is just try to play every weekend and improve your skillz. Then later when your parents dont control you, you can go try out for teams. Im on a local 3 man team until I get into college. Which is in like 4 months, the colleges here all have teams that compete in national tourneys and such.

ego, we have been talking, and just to tell you, michigan has the third most feilds in the US, trust me dude, there are tons of places to play and pick up players. oh, oh and if i sound like an a$$ right now im not, its just hard to put typing into context. So, i guess if you want to start a team ill do it, I live near you, but ill probly be back on a team before that anyway. but shoot me a pm and we can talk somemore..

Well if u cant rele join a team cause there too far away. you have to make your own. Now do u have friends who play and are good? Well if u do great you have some players on the team already. If you don't, you need to get word out that your starting a team. I know you sed u live where no one plays but if no one plays then u cant start a team. So just be patient in finding players. Also find the closest paintball place to you that holds tournaments. Win a few tourneys then email companies with a resume.

First learn how to spell and use proper grammar. Then learn how to type. Once you master that, consider paintball.
practise-- practice

Yeah anyone *****ing about their state not having paintball should move to North Dakota... but anyway, join a team, I had my whole team quit recently to move onto another team even though I was the one playing all the 1v3s 4s or 5s, so just join one, that way they wont come up behind you and stab you in the back (Bitter, yes I am!).

Overall I'd have to say this is going to be the lamest signature you'll ever see. A signature on a paintball site is a place where people with gear usually try and "Show off what they have", on that note my equipment is as follows: Gun, Tank, Hopper, Jersey, Pants, and Mask. Now what did you get out of that?
