Forming A Paintball Team
The majority of paintball games and tournaments are played in teams. If you take the time to build a top-notch team, your chances of winning games and tournaments are much greater.
Keep in mind that in many tournaments, the teams are formed right before the game starts. This does not allow you the opportunity to hand pick your team members. This makes it necessary to have the ability to work together with complete strangers, and to assess strengths and weaknesses in those strangers quickly.
When you are forming a regular team, you should first determine what type of paintball games you would be participating in. In theme-based games, you will need a person to fill each of the available roles, such as sniper, medic, transport, demolition, etc. You will need to choose the best person for the job. You do this by assessing each team member�s abilities. You can assess abilities by asking questions and running the members through an obstacle course. You will know who thinks clearly under pressure, which has the best aim, which can run the fastest, and things such as this. Keep notes on each member�s weaknesses and abilities.
If a team member is unhappy with their assignment, you may need to re-assign the member to another role that they may be suited for. If the member only wants to be a shooter, they may not understand the importance of support roles, and may not be cut out for team play. It is important that each team have a leader. It may also be necessary to have two or three leaders, depending on the size of your team. Just remember the problems that exist when there are too many Chiefs, and not enough Indians.
You should work out signals with your team, as well as team tactics and strategy ahead of time, and practice often! It is beneficial to make sure each member of your team has a radio headset for communication.
A team that works well together and practices often can make it to the pro paintball games!
