Nexus train twice a month and 3 times in the month before an event which we usually try and make a scrimmage and another team. It's not a lot in the grand scheme of things but it is what our paint allocation will allow.
The more you train the better you become and the better you are the more chance you have of winning, so there is definitely a direct correlation between training and winning. You have to train the right way though!
As for JOY. They are good because they have a good training regime, the players have been together for a long long time and they have a great coach with a great head on his shoulders. In short, they have the complete package.

Here in NZ I was with the most trainingest (;p) team for a while - we did about 2 hours a week of reball training on average and monthlyish all day paint trainings. That's highly unusual in NZ though and probably explains why the team were winning national events a lot at the time. Since our reball place closed down the team have stopped winning anywhere near as much.
So how much do Nexus train, and do you see a direct relationship between time spent training and winningness?
