Hello everyone and thanks in advance for giving the thread a look. I am making a new thread for our team tryouts as things are changing and the old thread (Southern Illinois Tryouts) just doesn't show our ambitions anymore and was well...old. This thread is current, and is going to be better kept.
Well Summer is almost over and now its back to school, but while I cram my brain full of knowledge during my senior year I also plan on forming a sound 5 man team with my right hand man Zepulkinator. We are now well skilled players who have devoted most of our summers to practice, and drills. We have two tourneys under our belts, and many hours of field practice, and we have got things better organized. We have a home field now at which we practice every Sunday, we have Jobs to support our paintball careers, and we have the motivation to make it work.
Why? There is no I in team people, tryout, join, and help your team earn a sponsorship. Finding a sponsor is a hard thing to do if I haven't got a full roster and an impressive resume to boast. And it is hard to make a resume and a website without a full team so, tryout and improve your chances of snagging a sponsor. I am right now working on sponsorships with LLD paintball, Area 51 (home field), and Redz.
What I Want From You? Devotion, My teammate and I are the only devoted players I have been able to come across in our area. Prove to me that there are devoted players, I want 1000% from my team, and I will accept nothing less. I am taking this team seriously and won't let anything get in our way of making it to the top.
You Up to It? So you think you are up to it, well then put your marker where your mouth is. I require the following.
You Have A DEPENDABLE Ride?
You have to get to practices, get to tournaments, and get together with the team to celebrate when we win.
If you are 15 or no license then make sure your mom has no problem carting you around.
You Have to Have Gear? I have my marker, my teammate has his, You have to have yours to, with tank, and all the trimmings. Please don't let your gear problems drag the team down.
You Need Money? You have to be able to pay for your own stuff, don't expect your team to carry your weight, help carry your team to the top.
If you have all that then post and I will pm you, When I get enough interest (at least five ballers) I will post a public tryout date. If you want to come as an individual and show your skills then post so my teammate can see who is interested as well and then shoot me a pm. We can set up a time for you to come play with us some weekend.
Thanks for your time guys, and lets see some serious ballers.
