- WHAT IS THE EDGE ARMY?
: The idea behind the EDGE Army is simple. We are looking to create a couple teams to play local events and maybe national events as well. The basis of the "Army" is finding players around the local area that want to play at a competitive level and that want to learn and play as a team. This will be a fun and constructive way to gain skill and knowledge in all aspects of paintball.
- WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BRING TO THE TABLE?
: We are looking for players that show the eagerness to learn, listen and want to better themselves and there team. The entire EDGE Army we will be based of team players, players with an eager to learn and positive attitude. You will need to be dedicated, being there for your team is vital to being successful, and you need to have some type of financial backing, there will be some sponsorship in place, but by no means will any team have a full ride. Although prior experience is a positive, you do not need to have any high level of tournament experience to try out. Even if you don't have tournament experience at all, we invite you to come and try out. Everyone is welcome and has the same chance of making a team; don't be discouraged if you haven't played tournament paintball; that's what this tryout is all about. Come out and see if the competitive side of paintball is for you.
- HOW MANY EDGE TEAMS WILL BE FORMED?
: There will be 2 or 3 teams formed depending on the amount of people that tryout and/or make the cut. If there is enough people that are interested and can commit, then we will have as many teams as we can. We will form Division 4 team(s) and Division 3 team(s). Each team will consist of 8-10 players.
- WHAT TOURNAMENTS WILL THE TEAM'S BE PLAYING?
: The EDGE Army teams will be based around local events. Playing such series as MSXL and MWXL along with the Plex tournaments. All of these tournaments will require some travel; but these are regional and somewhat local, so travel won’t be tremendous. Along with regional events, the teams have the option to play in the PSP, such as the Chicago Open and any other PSP events the team want to pay to play.
- WHEN IS THE TRYOUT?
: We will have a series of tryouts. The dates are posted below. We encourage you to come out to more than one practice/tryout, although it is not required of you to tryout more than once; the more playing time you get, the better chances you have. Each tryout will consist of different drills and games scenario's; so come prepared to work and have fun.

- WHAT TEAM AM I TRYING OUT FOR?

- HOW WILL I KNOW IF I MADE A TEAM?
: You will be contacted via pbnation or any other contact info you give us at the tryout. You will be notified the week following the last tryout date, TBA.
- WHAT WILL I GET OUT OF THIS?

You will be apart of a group with the same goals and ideas you have about the sport and will be guided and pushed all season to become the best player you can be. And as corny as it sounds, you will gain friendships and memories that will make the entire season and experience that much more gratifying.
