Team Desert Edge is proud to announce the addition of our new National Speedball divisional amateur paintball team based in Salt Lake City, UT. Desert Edge will participate in the following National events:
NPPL: Huntington Beach, Las Vegas
UWL: CA, UT, Finals (IL)
Local Events will include PSP feeder league among others
We are looking for players who are committed and can afford to play. All players are welcome to tryout but be advised, this is a competitive Try-Out situation and will be intense.
We will be holding tryouts at Paintball Addicts on November 24th 2012.
Day: Saturday November 24th 2012
Time: 8am SHARP!!
Location: Paintball Addicts 1001 West 2610 South Salt Lake City, UT 84119
Things to consider:
§ We are looking for LONG TERM team members.
§ We compete in paintball to win events.
§ We are looking for players that have the dedication to put in the time, effort, energy, skill, and the MONEY to play.
Being on a team that competes on the national level is EXPENSIVE. This is not a free ride for national paintball although some costs will be subsidized. Players who are selected for the team need to ensure they have the financing to play both events and practices. Costs that should be considered are:
1. Fuel, hotel, food, personal expenses at the events, etc. If you’ve played tournament paintball you know all the small items and expenses that go along with travel.
2. Players must use the equipment of the sponsors and represent the sponsors in a positive manor at all times. Sponsored equipment includes markers, clothing, and gear (while we have sponsorships, nothing is free).
3. Players should expect to spend roughly $1,000 to attend tournaments Plus the costs of practices. Expenses are often unpredictable so please be prepared for variations in expenses.
Once again, players who make this commitment need to make sure they can afford the entire season. It’s not fair to your teammates to only commit half way.
We will hold a minimum of 2 practices per month, and as events get close, we practice every week. Team paint is a requirement.
Practices will be held at Paintball Addicts and UXP Paintball Salt Lake City, UT.
We are looking for players with the following attributes……
We want players that exhibit exceptional sportsmanship and attitude.
We want players that fit into our group. Chemistry is important and drama will not be tolerated.
We want players that can afford to play the entire season of paintball…..once again, nothing is free.
1. Will start promptly at 8am (you will need to be ready and on the field by 8:30 sharp)
2. Will have a cost of $45.00 a case for paint with Free entry and air courtesy of PB Addicts.
3. The 24th will consist of open tryouts for any and all players interested.
