Overview- 2012 - PPSC Field Team
Just as the title states we will be sponsoring a team in 2012. Like all successful teams I have been affiliated with in the past we will be focusing on improving individual skills as well as teamwork with only "winning" in mind. Those who dedicate themselves and work hard will ultimately get where they desire to be in paintball. The individuals helping with the team have been involved with paintball for a number of years and have competed and won on both a Regional and National level, everyone will benefit from their experience both on and off the field. If you want to just come down on Sunday and joke around with your buddies every other weekend, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. We are looking for guys who want to improve and are willing to put in the effort.
As far as events or leagues go, the 2012 team will either be competing in the USPA or AXBL. Both leagues offer a regional, full length X-Ball format at 15.4 BPS. At the moment we are currently waiting for both leagues to release their 2012 information to make our decision.
Practices over the winter will take place at indoor locations in both PA as well as Ohio, so there will be some travel involved. Most likely we will set dates up once a month during the winter for everyone to get together. I will release a schedule shortly. If you are interested in coming out to these winter sessions and have not been in contact with me please feel free to send me an email (email@example.com).
Sponsorship opportunities will be offered by the field/store. This is not a free ride and the team will be required to pay mandatory dues. All travel expenses will be covered by the players for events/practice. It will most likely breakdown to 50.00/practice which will occur 2-3 times per month during the season. We will also supplement some of the travel expenses by developing a "team fund" and putting portions of the 50.00 practice fee into a savings account for the team. The team will also be sponsored by either Dye or Empire for guns/soft goods. Both have yet to release 2012 sponsorship package details so this has yet to be determined. Paint sponsorship will be through the field and has also yet to be determined for the 2012 season. We will work hard to provide the players with the most reasonable pricing possible throughout the year.
- Full Season commitment (All practices/events)
- Pay all player dues in full (specified due dates)
- Transportation to and from practice (No, I am not picking you up)
- Prompt to all practices (Be geared up before 10 am)
- Represent the field and other sponsors in a positive manner (Basically, do not act like Cameron Derzack ever!)
- Officiate local events at PPSC and help clean the field after all practices (Thanks)
There is more to come and I will be going further in depth in the near future. We have had 20 or so players so far express interest and come out for a few drill sessions so far. If this is something you might be interested in please post here or email firstname.lastname@example.org
