How often does everyone practice?

Topic. For people in tournaments only.

Just wondering cause our team seems to be getting a bit droopy on the practice... and on everything really... It's basically two of us playing a four man... It's bad... But how often do you guys practice? Once a week? Once a month?

i practice as much as i can. if a few buds are going to the field even during the week, i do my best to go and run some drills. just make mandatory practices, and tell them if they like being on that team, they better show up to the next practice...

I don't practice. I play paintball. If more people looked at it that way, they would become better players.

I disagree. To a certain extent, your correct. But if your wanting to be at peak performance, being able to run and shoot near to ball on ball for example, practice and drills are a must.

Although, i see a lot of team "practice" by just running games all day. This is fine to find out what you need to improve upon, or to gel with your team. But, you have to run proper drills which resembles a game situation (i.e. Full pack, whilst tired, etc.) if you want to take first.

That's our capt right there . We also have a mandatory practice once a month during non-tourney months. Or we did. Well, we have one this month.
