University of Iowa/ Iowa City Area Team

Alright, so myself and another guy are in the process of re-starting up the University of Iowa's paintball club team. We're still deciding on whether or not to be an actual club team or just a local team (this all depends on interest and other certain technicalities), however at this point we're interested in anybody that is willing to play. Specifically, we're looking to play some local tournaments and pickup games, etc. We plan to be strictly tourny-style play, no woodsball. Maybe at somepoint we can set the club up to have an A side for tourneys and a B side for woodsball, but we're not at that point yet. If you're interested in helping us out or being a part of it, shoot me an email at weston[dot]slater[at]gmail.com.

Thanks,
Weston

We've been in contact with velocity, however they are still rather up in the air. They're pointing us in the direction of team Midwest Storm, who are about 45 minutes away in Mt. Pleasant.

Im the other kid with him trying to start it up, I have talked to the old captains and they have gave me permission to start it up again. I am an incoming freshman for next year so ill be starting to fill out th paper work as soon as I can with the University to start the club if we can get some sort of recognition and backing considering they looked down upon the last team. If all else fails we will start a local team and work our way up to playing in bigger tourneys. Pm me if you have any questions, we wanna plan to meet up this summer sometime to discuss everything and play some ball at velocity to start gellin with each other.

Ill be contacting the University this week to start the progress in becoming an actual Club Sport so that we would get some sort of backing from the University. If they refuse to do this because they look down upon the sport because of the "shooting" people and "guns" part like they did the last team. We will form a non University related team.

Tips for attempting to become a club sport

first thing you need to do is contact the davenport college and get some basic contact information from them. It will help you with other local colleges have club teams (possibly). Also, contacting Chris Rhael (sp) who runs the rankings and college tournaments would be good. He's bound to have resources to help.

Researching which big ten schools also have club teams would be good.

Presenting them with overwhelming amount of information is good. If you present all this information to them, they won't be looking at the gun aspect, and the running around shooting people.


Just a suggestion.
