2014 VICIOUS Streetball Tournament - Sept 21, 2014 - The BEST One Yet!!!



ALL ENTRY FEES MUST BE RECEIVED BY 5PM ON WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3, 2014




History:
The first Streetball Tournament, in 2007, was a huge success. All those who participated enjoyed the event. Beginners, with the help of players from Team VICIOUS, were able to have fun, gain experience, and learn more about the sport. More advanced players had the opportunity to play with a different group of people and in a different atmosphere than the normal tournament setting, while still being able to enjoy the competitive nature as well as learn from their team captains, all players of Professional Team VICIOUS.

The VICIOUS Streetball events held the following 7 years proved to be just as exciting, with the events continually growing in size and popularity, leading to the 2014 Spring Streetball Lite tournament held earlier this year in April of 2014. We are looking to continue the tradition of fun for the 8th year in a row with the 2014 VICIOUS Streetball Tournament!



What it is:
The Streetball Tournament is a fun and relaxed event in which players are randomly assigned to teams by a lottery system before the event. New to the game? Don’t have a team? It doesn’t matter. All players of all skill levels are encouraged to attend. Teams are split up evenly, based on each player’s experience level, determined by their ranking in the American Paintball Players Association (APPA)*. This offers a chance for those with little to no paintball experience to become introduced with a more tournament-styled paintball atmosphere. It also offers a more laidback and unique change of pace for those more experienced players. Each team will be captained by a member of Team VICIOUS, who will assist players by giving tips, answering questions, etc. In addition, each team will receive their own distinct jerseys which the players get to keep. The tournament is made to be as inexpensive as possible, encouraging newer players to participate.


How it works:
Teams are chosen at random through a lottery system. Names are drawn, by chance, based on each player’s APPA* ranking, and assigned to a team. All players with an APPA* ranking of D2 will be drawn first, followed by those with a D3 ranking, followed by D4, and so on, until all players have been assigned teams. Each team will have a member of Team VICIOUS playing with them and acting as the team captain. Due to teams being picked based solely on a lottery system, the playing abilities of each team as a whole are relatively equal among all the teams. This helps ensure that all players attending the event have a fun and positive experience.

* The APPA is an independent player tracking system, used to classify players based on their level of tournament experience. Those with no tournament experience within the APPA system will still be required to sign up and receive a unique identification number to help ensure accuracy in the lottery system.

APPA (American Paintball Players Association):
Each player is required to have an APPA identification number for the 2014 VICIOUS Streetball Tournament. This id number must be submitted when the player signs up for the tournament. If you do not have an APPA number, you can sign up for one HERE. Please make sure the information you submit is correct, as it will be used to determine your APPA rank, and will impact which round of the lottery you are picked in.

Paint:
The 2014 VICIOUS Streetball Tournament is an Event Paint Only event.

Paintballs will be priced at $60 (TAX INCLUDED) per case of 2000 paintballs of Ultra Evil Paintballs. In order to help ensure that the event is fair and fun for every player, the team's will be using team paint for their games. This means that at the beginning of the day each player purchases a single case of paint, and the team as a whole uses all of this paint first. After this paint has been consumed, each player will pitch in more paint as necessary. If the team only needs to purchase 4 more cases, then the cost of those 4 cases is divided evenly among everyone on the team.

For the 2014 VICIOUS Streetball Tournament we will be using Ultra EVIL Paintballs (or a comparable ball, depending on weather conditions the day of the event).

APPA (American Paintball Players Association):
Each player is required to have an APPA identification number for the 2014 VICIOUS Streetball Tournament. This id number must be submitted when the player signs up for the tournament. If you do not have an APPA number, you can sign up for one HERE. Please make sure the information you submit is correct, as it will be used to determine your APPA rank, and will impact which round of the lottery you are picked in.

We have always used sunday the past 8 years and received a great response from attending players, even those that are driving (or other travel means) from pretty good distances. Part of the starting tradition of streetball was that it was always held on the last Sunday before the team left for World Cup to lighten the mood and interact with out fans. With the new schedules mandated by the PSP for team practices, the current setup of the first Sunday of the layout release still seems to work really well for a majority of those attending, both regular players as well as Vicious and event organizers.

Sunday also allows us to ensure the field is going to play well for the event and gives us time to tweak it if needed.

Then you have Husker football on Saturdays.....
