Clinic?

I think it would be a great idea if you guys did a clinic at maynard paintball or someplace. I know a ton of people would go because there arent really any clinics in Massachusetts that I know of. What do you guys think?

Historically, attendance has been poor at clinics offered in this area. I think the best clinic NEH ever ran, when we were pro, had 20 people. And most had fewer than 10.

What are you planning on covering? What level of player are you targeting this clinic at?

Who would do a clinic if it was geared toward a higher class player. Higher regional/national player?

If it was full day I would definitly do it becuase thats only $30 more dollars then a case and entrance plus you would probably be able to play more and gain alot of skill and knowledge. Also, I bet if you did it at Maynard they would send out an email through their email list about it which would get some people plus I would definitly be able to get atleast 3 or 4 of my friends.

I'd do it for a national or regional. Just a quick question. Would you focus for NPPL or PSP because they're pretty different layouts and sized bunkers it changers the full dynamics.

Great questions guys. You have uncovered the reason it is difficult to put on a clinic. Paintball is so specialized these days, that the higher level the instruction, the more focused the lessons need to be.

If the Canes are running a clinic it would make sense to me that they would teach what they do. National Level Xball. A clinic such as this would resemble a Canes Practice.

You would learn what kind of equipment you should be using, how to warm up, how to drill. You would learn an assortment of drills that will help you improve your skills. As well as experience game play at the highest level and intensity. You may have played against the Canes at the NEPL, but you have not done it with this level of attention to detail, and expectation.

In my experience, when we did this in the past, the reviews were not the greatest. Players complained that it wasn't as much fun as they thought, or that they didn't get enough actual play time. I laughed at this.

We promised to put them through what we went through, and we did that. they were right, it is not all fun and games. We worked hard, and they worked hard. If you have played any organized sport you know. Practice is not just scrimmage. Drilling is the lesson, scrimmage is homework.

I didn't mean to go on a rant, but that is what happens when I get started.

I figure... If you want to play high level Xball, you find a high level Xball team and have them show you exactly what they do. Then you go do it.

Maybe I'm just simplistic.
