Bradley University used to have a good paintball program going some years back, but a couple of years ago it died out. Back in the Fall of 2010, we revamped the program and it is now about 15 members strong.
Here is a video remix from the last NCPA event we took 2nd at:
However, this past semester we have had a very good start to rebuilding the program. Here is our tournament experience for the fall:
Oct. 3rd - 5man D4 @ Pekin - 5th Place
Oct. 25th - 3man @ Pekin - 1st and 3rd place (Two teams)
Nov. 23rd - 3man @ Pekin - 1st and 5th place (Two teams)
Apr. 2 - NCPA @ Pekin - 3rd Place
May 6 - MPPL Event #1 - 7th Place
June 11 - MPPL #2 - 11th Place
June 26 - PSP Chicago - 37th Place
July 9 - NCPA @ Pekin - 2nd Place
Mar. 31 - NCPA X-Ball @ Badlandz
We try to practice every weekend at Pekin that we are not doing a tournament. As far as experience goes, we have two guys who play NPPL, one of which was on the team that won D3 NPPL series. We also have some guys that play PSP at D4/D5 level, but we also have a few more beginner tournament players. We have a total of about 10-13 people on our roster who go to practice and participate in tournys (so about 2 PSP Lines.)
Now onto the best part.... current sponsors/future sponsors:
- Bradley University (Get $2,000 each semester, will be $4,000 for summer and hopefully $6,000 each semester starting fall of 2011)
- Monster Energy
- Panther Creek Paintball
- ANS Gear
- Pekin Paintball Park
Pending Future Sponsors
- High Profile Hobbies (Pending on a new field opening up)
We should be a FULLY FUNDED program by the fall of 2011 or spring 2012 where each member will only have to pay $100-200 a semester to fill in financial gaps. The Program would cover all practice fees, tournament fees and travel fees.
So things are looking good for Bradley paintball and its future!
Any Questions, please post here or PM me. I am one of the captains, but I can put you in touch with our President or Vice Presisent (who is our other Captain.)
