Yes you read the title right.
is looking to field a team for the D1 NPPL 2012 series. We feel that the BC/Local Community is fully capable of fielding a top level team.
There will be five events that we will be attending: Huntington Beach, DC, Vancouver Canada, Chicago, and Vegas.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for around 4-6 people...
Before you decide on attending this tryout please understand the following:
1. There will be 2 mandatory practices (Minimum) per month. No excuses for not being there. there is no acceptable excuse for missing a designated practice, and you will likely be sitting or cut.
2. Paintball costs a lot of money. Although the team will have some sponsorship, players will still be expected to have ample personal funding to keep them playing. Sponsorship Levels will be determined by a few things to be discussed at the tryout. Essentially what I am saying is plan for nothing being covered, and when things are be pleasantly surprised.
3. Flexible schedule and a relaxed employer or school. If you can't take extra days off to attend events, or practices abroad, its just going to complicate things in the future.
4. Passport. seriously you need one.
other than that we are essentially looking for those players that "want it". They would be the people with the drive and determination to make it on a national stage. As someone who has been watching hundreds of players come through my field year after year, i can defiantly say there is enough talent in Vancouver area to compete at this level. We just need to organize a small group together to actually do it.
The format is 7man Xball, essentially it's 7 man, just played in a race to series. No coaching, No ramping, and there's another set of teams that plays a game in between your points, so its not as hectic as normal Xball.
Tryouts will be on January 15th providing the weather is acceptable @ Ambush Paintball. Although the field is BYOP, Winter formula Paintballs and others will be on hand if you need something to shoot. No charge to participate in the tryout.
If you get a call back (make the cut) the following practice will be a tentative date but most likely the next weekend at DBS paintball in Everett, Washington.
Sponsors of the team will be:
