Tip #13: Strength Comes From Your Weakness

Oct 15, 2012 by Jason "FK" Edwards in Tip of the Week | Comments


The difference in a team who is at practice and going through the motions is much different than a team who is practicing to win. A successful practice doesn’t mean you won every match/point you played, in fact it is the opposite of that!

A good team starts the practice and plays standard paintball, by winning matches they write those plays down and put them to the side. They then keep trying to play into their weaknesses! For instance, if you are making the snake and corner bunkers every point and winning, but your losing the points you play a defensive style, then you need to put the plays that worked away and continue trying to find a way to win the points that your having trouble with.

Winning points only shows you a one sided story. The trick is to find your teams weaknesses and overcome them. You never know how the other team will play against you and you need to be able to adjust with in a single point!

Better to get the shit shot out of you in practice where there is nothing on the line. Put your ego in check and try this out next practice! Let the other team talk the trash, post the practice outcome on the internet, bonus ball you, and bunker you. When you win the event and your holding your check, just be sure to smile and know what it takes to be a winner!
