Ronin, Inc Tryouts

Ronin, Inc, a newly formed team out of Illinois, is looking for talent at all levels to come join us. We plan to participate in the XPL as our primary national focus, while playing the CPL at the local level. We also have potential to play the Midwest PSP event and some other local events pending scheduled dates. We are planning on playing at the D3/D4 level based on final roster, but are a national team that will require a firm commitment on attendance and the associated costs that come with. Our focus as an organization is to find ways to supplement this cost to make the season less of a financial burden. This is certainly not a free ride and will require effort for the return. Sponsors will be solidified by year’s end.

Ronin, Inc is also taking a different approach with our organizational structure. We are a true non-profit company that will carry insurance for each player that steps on the field. Our players are the backbone of the organization, and in protecting those individuals, we hope to make everyone’s lives on and off the field that much more secure. We also will run the team as the business it is. Written policies, attendance requirements, and contractual obligations are all part of the formula in which we see helping the organization mature quickly.

We are looking for all player types from front to back, having moderate to extensive tournament experience, or the potential to compete at this level. In looking for individuals that can make this financial and time commitment, we are hosting a series of tryouts every few weeks starting on October 12th and running until early 2015. Tryout locations will be announced, so please post / private message so we may forward all details. We are focused on growing each of our players and in turn growing with them. Please come join an organization that is hoping to set the standard within this sport we have all come to enjoy.

We will be out at CPX this Sunday and again on the 26th. Come on down to chat a bit more about our organization and get some points in with us. Now is the time to start preparing for 2015!

Breezy... You know you are always welcome to grind out with us.

I know it's not the norm but all players will have coverage under our company/team. This insurance can supplement any coverage you already have or act as a stand alone plan. Let's face it, we play a sport and over time most players will suffer injuries from minor to more significant. We want to ensure our players don't have a major life setback from an injury as balancing out work (yes paintball is work) and life is key to our vision. It obviously isn't free but we worked out some very minimal rates. Our team is full of business professionals and understand what makes a company work along with an overlay of paintball experience. I've personally been playing competitive paintball for 22 years and have seen enough to know this is the right thing for our team and players alike.

This also places additional protection on the fields we participate at. If sometime is to get injured and they don't currently carry insurance, they could potentially go after the field. Its hard enough for anyone in the paintball industry already and don't want our organization to place this additional burden out there. Trying to do our part to help out the players and businesses we interact with.

Thanks everyone for the positive comments. If anyone down at CPX this weekend wants to chat more and grind it out, stop on by. We will be down there about 9 and ready to hit the field by 10. Might only have one more good weather weekend this year so even if you are not interested come on out to CPX for a great practice.

Look forward to seeing you there!!

Thank you for everyone that showed up for tryouts. We got a good look at some midwest talent and appreciate the response so far. We are continuing to hold tryouts on November 23rd at Cpx's new indoor facility and running until late December. We will finalize the roster at that time in preparation for what's being set up as an exciting year for our organization . Please continue to contact us on here or at teamroninpb@gmail.com for more details.

Next practice confirmed on Nov 23rd at CPX indoor in Melrose Park. The next month is critical as we should be finalizing rosters and all support. First XPL is coming at us fast. Please contact me if interested in being part of an organization that is sure to have an active year on and off the field. Again our goal is to create opportunity to supplement costs as we will be participating in a tournament just about every month. In no way do you have to commit to all of them but are looking for talent that has the desire for increasing National tournament experience.

We are still actively looking but time is running out to begin planning out our first event in February. Please reach out if you are still looking for a team for next season. Would be happy to discuss all details. Will be at Ohare this weekend but CPX should be getting ready to open soon. Thanks.
