Ok, time for another tryout. I want to say first and foremost, this will not be an open tryout. I obtained some talent at the last tryout and it had a great turnout, I am expecting the same level of interest for this tryout for this tryout.
This is a TWO part tryout.
First portion will be a full scrimmage with Somerville Crisis at Boston Paintball Indoor on Monday January 12th (time TBA). This will be an opportunity to showcase your overall playing ability and show us how you conduct yourself on and off the field.
The second portion of the tryout will be a private drill and situational practice session with the team at Bennett AllWeather Paintball in Gorham, Maine. We will go over certain drills and game situations to replicate things like break outs, 1v1s, 2v2, power play, short handed, etc. This will be indoor and reball. Sunday, January 18th.
I may or may not have everyone from the first tryout attend the second tryout, but if we like you and you are serious about playing for this organization, you need to attend both parts.
With that being said, I think its only fair to discuss benefits and team goals. We intend to be a premier xball organization on all levels, AXBL, PSP, etc. We have great support from our sponsors with new sponsorships for the 2009 season. I am not handing out free rides and will not discuss our sponsorship or team contracts until an offer has been made to an individual player. I need players with heart, a willingness to learn and be great, and the attitude to win.
You may be asking yourself, how do I get an invite to tryout? Quite simple really. Post, provide your name, location, contact information and playing credentials. This means previous teams, experience (xball or non), results, clinics, personal references. Whatever you feel it takes to be noticed. We have AXBL and MXL spots available, and are really looking for a few more solid pickups to round out the rosters for 2009.
Thanks for your time
(On a side note: I will potentially need a few players for the PSP squad, if you are committed to an AXBL/MXL team and still looking to play PSP, shoot me a PM)
UPDATE: For those who have been invited to tryout: I expect every player at boston paintball, registered, ready to take the field for warmups at 7pm. A match vs. Somerville Crisis is scheduled to begin at 8pm, but may begin sooner. Expect to play until 10pm, but may also end sooner. If you could all please send me a PM to confirm your attendance along with your name, email address and telephone number, that would be great. I'll see you guys on monday, dont forget your A game.
