Boom looking for a few dedicated players in SoCal

Hey all,

I'm Dave Moore. I run the LA Boom squad, and we're looking to add a few players to round out our organization. We are affiliated with the Boom organization that plays in the NXL. As such, our players in SoCal receive the same sponsorship deals as our players in the MidWest and get the opportunity to move up the ranks through our farm system. I moved to LA from Chicago around a year ago and started this branch of the Boom organization. We've had the LA squad together since the beginning of 2015.

We're looking to add players for local (and optionally some national) events in D4 or D3. More specifically, we're looking for players that fit the following mold:

1. Ranked D2 or below and willing to play D3 or D4. Sorry to those looking to play a higher division. We are very happy with the players we currently have on our Pro and D2 lines.

2. Enjoys playing paintball and is emotionally stable. We take getting better at paintball seriously. But in order for us to make the sacrifices necessary (time, money, sweat, etc) we have to be having fun in the process. At the same time, you can't get so wrapped up into the game that you freak out every time somebody cheats or overshoots you in practice. It's paintball, that is going to happen from time to time.

3. Is financially stable and has a flexible work schedule. We don't have a major financial backer like some teams. If you are rich and want to fill that role, please call me immediately ;-) In all seriousness, we do get help from our sponsors (Empire, SC Village, Blastcamp, Commando Paintball Sports, and Drom Paintball). However, by no means is playing on Boom a free ride. Not even for our pro squad. To join our organization, you have to be financially able to practice on a regular basis and play a good number of tournaments throughout the year.

4. Are coachable. If when you get shot, you seek to blame external factors instead of looking to internalize a lesson, don't bother trying out. I'm only looking for those who are looking to improve, can take advice from anyone (including from people with less experience), and are able to apply feedback that is given to them. I don't want to inflate my abilities, as I'm guilty of making on the field mistakes just like everyone else, but as someone with professional coaching and playing experience I'm confident I can mold excellent paintball players.

If you think you fit this mold and are interested in joining the Boom organization, please PM me and we'll invite you to an upcoming practice.

//Dave

We practice twice a weekend a couple weeks leading up to tournaments, then we sprinkle in once a weekend practices in between.

Age is not a factor.

I just arrived to fort Irwin about two weeks ago, I would love to get involved with this if you are still looking for players but I need to find out more about what my schedule will be like.

I'll be at SC this Sunday with a handful of our guys. If you're interested in joining up, this Sunday would be a good opportunity. I'll make sure to wear a boom shirt or jersey to make me easy to find.

Ehino, we won't be having a formal event this time around. We'll instead be having people at our practices here and there. PM me to get on that schedule.

Not this weekend. We're saving our money for a string of practices leading up to World Cup. PM me to schedule a tryout.
