EDGE now has a D3 5man, D3 Xball, and USPL D2 7man team. We need/want to form a D4 5man team for 2009 Chicago and World Cup. As we look into the 2010 season we expect to have a D2 Xball team, D3 Xball, D3 5man, and D4 5man team - and possibly a 7 man team.
In order to keep our program loaded with top talent we need to start a feeder team for 2010 D3..... and keep that going every year. We need a D4 5man team now.
Mandatory weekly practice (sometimes twice/week) - typically Saturday night and/or Sunday.
Desire to play the National tournament scene for the next 2-4 years.
Have working equipment.
Good Sportsmanship and "Gel" with teammates
Sponsorship by Paintball PLEX and Trademygun -
Practice: You will get discounts but it is not free. Our highest division team gets the best deals. Entry fee is $10 and paint is discounted to employee prices (typically $34/case for new paint). Plex paint will be available for you to buy at $15/case.
Events: Cost per National event per person will be $250-$300. We will roster 6 on this team. This will cover entry,paint, and hotel room for the national events. You will be responsible for transportation to the event (normally register on Friday and play Saturday/Sunday).
TRYOUT DATE - This Saturday Night at 7PM and/or This Sunday Morning at 10AM.
PM me with your background if you plan on attending.
Practice Schedule for D4 5man (the selected 6) team leading up to Chicago Open:
May 30th 7PM-10PM
June 6th 7PM-10PM
June 13th 7PM-10PM
June 14th 10AM Scrimmage
June 20th 7PM-10PM
June 21st 10AM Scrimmage
Register in Chicago Thursday June 25th for Fri-Sun session.
You will be practicing with tough teams and should plan on getting your stuff pushed in every week. This will make our D4 team excel above most other teams that don't have this weekly practice/scrimmage advantage.
If you plan on giving me excuses for any regular conflict - don't bother trying out. Any regular or unexcused miss of practice and you'll be off the team.
