Factory Black is a 7 man team based out of Edmonton but had players from New York, California, Florida, Michigan, and even Malaysia play on the team. With almost a different roster every event, the team ended up placing 4th overall in Division 1 in the NPPL beating teams the likes of Dynasty Entourage and Arsenal D1. Now for the 2010 season the team will be completely based out of Albany, New York and needs players.
We will be be holding try-outs for roughly 2 spots on the Division 1 NPPL 7 man team as well as creating a new kids team for Division 3 NPPL 7 man. Between the two teams there are roughly 11-13 open spots for players to try-out for.
This teams main goal is to help revive speedball in Albany and the surrounding areas as well as make two competing national teams out of Albany, which has never been done before. These teams are currently NPPL 7 man only, but may expand to Xball in future seasons.
The try-outs will be held on January 3rd in Syracuse, New York at Headrush from 8:00 AM to 3ish PM. Headrush prices will be $10 entry for $40/case or $20 BYOP.
Note: We do NOT have the field to ourselves so don't bother Ken, Doyle, or any of the other Headrush staff about it. If you are interested in trying out email Mike Mizejewski at Newenglandballer69@gmail.com
