General Series Information For Both The Premier and Intermediate Divisions
All rosters must be completed 10 days prior to the event. This is to ensure that all rosters can be checked and confirmed. Any addition made after this deadline will be at a cost of $20 per addition, there is no charge to drop a player from a roster.
All players and staff will be required to have paid for a 2013 VICIOUS Series ID to sign in at any VICIOUS Series event in 2013. All players and staff must also be in good standing with the league at the time of the event to be allowed to participate. Players and staff must also have an appropriate picture uploaded to their APPA player profile. VICIOUS Series IDs can be purchased through the APPA Website via your individual player profile.
2013 VICIOUS Series IDs may be purchased for $35.
Once a player pays for their 2013 VICIOUS Series ID they may sign in. Only players and staff with current, paid VICIOUS Series ID, and who are in good standing with the league, will be allowed to sign in.
Players may also purchase a PSP 2013 ID, instead of a Vicious Series ID. If you or your team participate in the PSP Series, we recommend this option instead, so you are only having to purchase 1 ID card for the year.
For the 2013 VICIOUS Series, all participants and spectators must be 10 years of age or older to be allowed on the property of the participating fields. This is a rule that is set in place by their insurance companies, and is not something we can control. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause anyone, but this rule is in place for the safety of all players and spectators.
Rate of Fire:
All divisions will have a 12.5bps rate of fire cap and must be in a PSP approved firing mode
Match Start Times:
----- Matches will begin immediately following the Captain's Meeting the morning of the event. Players should plan on matches starting approximately 7:45am to 8:00am CST. Teams are only required to arrive and be fully checked in 90 minutes before their first scheduled match.
For example: if your first match is scheduled to start at 11:00am, you must have your entire team, staff and players, checked in by 9:30am.
All VICIOUS Series events in 2013 are EVENT PAINT ONLY. Teams will not be able to use paint from a previous event at another event in the Series. We will have paintballs available starting at $50 plus tax per case of 2000 paintballs, and increasing prices for higher grades of paint from there.
Player misconduct penalties can be assessed by any judge on the field, as well as the Ultimate Judge. Any action deemed to be player misconduct can result in a 1 for 1 penalty, 2 for 1 penalty, suspension, and or ejection. Actions deemed inappropriate can include swearing, hostile physical contact between individuals, throwing equipment, or just being a poor sport and making the event less fun for other players (this includes taunting, counter-coaching, being a jerk in general, etc.)
ABSOLUTELY NO FOUL LANGUAGE will be tolerated from any players, staff or spectators. While we understand this is a competitive event, it is still a family event, and should be fun and enjoyable for everyone involved.
The color yellow is a banned color in the VICIOUS Series in 2013. We understand that some players have yellow or gold parts or bodies on their markers. If you have one of these, you will need to submit the marker to the head referee for inspection prior to the event to see if you will be able to use it or not.
Some Clothing Rules:
All players must wear long pants and a long-sleeve jersey type shirt. Player clothing may not have excessive holes, rips, tears, or anything else that would inhibit a referee’s ability to monitor a player.
Metal and ceramic spikes and cleats are not allowed at any VICIOUS Series event for 2013. Track spikes are acceptable as long as the spikes have been removed. This is done to ensure the safety of players, staff and the fields.
Player’s clothing worn on the field may not contain the color Yellow, as this color is banned for the 2013 season in the VICIOUS Series.
Spectators are encouraged to come out and support their team. We require that fans respect the officiating staff as well as all of the players at the event. Counter-coaching, as well foul language will not be allowed by any player or spectator.
Hotel information will be posted for several hotels close to the field in a separate thread.
The VICIOUS Series does not charge for media passes. However, as media, the VICIOUS Series’ only request is to make all other media files available for the players, families, and friends to enjoy. Photographers interested in attending any of the VICIOUS Series events this year should email ViciousSeries@gmail.com
to inquire about a media pass.
The VICIOUS Series Events will be played on their own unique layouts, which will be released 2 weeks before each event.
