last tourney i was in we weren't given a break from 9-3 and i hadn't packed any food. by the last three games i was more worried about where i was gonna get food then concentrating on the game. so PACK FOOD!
If you ever go to a tourny and find your team's tent next to a team named the sticky bandits i highly suggest you move or lock up your stuff. They are named that for a reason. Man...I could of used those three cases of paint. Ohh good thread btw

Frankly, **** trying to get a bunch of rec ballers who could care less into the sport. If they weren't hooked from day 1 the statistics will show they never be. Go to your local field and practice with the regulars until you're good enough to join a team, or maybe you'll meet other new players.
ya i didnt read all the pages but some good advice before a tourney is def practice against experienced teams. u might be afraid of getting beat or watever but believe it or not the games where u get pounded into the ground although hurt ur pride the most actually help the most. look at who got u out and why and from where so the next time u hit that bunker u kno wat angles to play and what not......also dont bring any tools (allen keys, wrenches etc)
my first tourney i played i got called out by a ref in the semi-finals when i dove into the snake and my wrench fell outa my pocket lol XD
