Hi guys,

So I'm just gonna go right into what this is about. Basically the first speedball team I made it onto very quickly was dissolved and never even got started. I waited a few months to find an already started team and I made it onto a  team named Baltimore Equinox who plays at my home field. Well, our team Captain disappeared the week after the first time I played with him and that's where it started to go down hill. I had practice last weekend and two people didn't show up (one had a good reason but the other we can't get in contact with). We played with some other guys on a team named Damage Control for the weekend and I had fun but I still didn't want to play with them. Then, the two guys other than me who were there from my team decide that they might want to join Damage Control. Now this is where I am at and I am not joining Damage Control. If they do I will most likely continue Equinox on my own and it will be tough I know but I have come too far to see the team fail and I just don't have another option really.

 

So its not all that bad and I know you all will say "you could just not play competitively" but that is exactly it. I am very driven and I WANT to play competitively no matter what it takes. Believe me, I will play competitively if I put my mind to it.

Tell me what you think.

 

Thanks,

Justin B.

This is why you have to try and find a program thats structured and large enough not to fail like this. If it doesnt work out Im sure youll be able to find another group of guys that isnt so flaky.

The team sounds rickety from the start. Let it die. Find another group. No reason to try to keep it alive really. Teams come and go. Find more dedicated people somewhere else.

Obviously the team won't last if the players don't give a shit about the team itself. Try to start a team with some friends you know. Maybe that will be easier

Well, the last guy on my team who didn't want to join Damage Control at first either, has decided he is going to now and I'm going with him. There are no other tryouts or anything I could go to in my area because they have all already happened and I just wanna give this a shot for one season. If it doesn't work out then maybe next year I will find a new team.

Well shoot, I have no idea what is going on right now. Now it looks like my guys had a little faith in me and we are most likely hosting tryouts next weekend. We'll see what happens I guess.

Have any of these "teams" played anything competitive before?

 

You should find an established team, not a bunch of guys who called themselves for a team after playing together a few times.

Yes, they have competed since I believe 2005 in some local tournaments. It looks like now we are going to be able to save the team. If we don't save the team I'm not joining Damage Control like I said.

A team that has played together since 2005 should be a lot better established and organized than that.

Yea I was thinking about that but right now its looking good for our team holding together. Nobben is right though, they should have a much more stable foundation by this point. I mean hey, if I don't like playing with them this year then I'll find a new one next year.

Cluster fuck as in no one knows where they stand and the team looks as if it's about to fall apart.

That's kinda true. Right now I have quite a few people interested in playing with us though. Looks pretty good for us right now like I said.

You could join a team like mine. if theres a really good d1 team in your area i dont know what division you are but most d1 teams have a d4 line. The team im on st louis huSTLe a very good d1 team started a d4/d3 line this year i went to tryouts and got accepted, so just if theres a really good d1 team in that area see if they have a d4 line you can join. odds are if theyre d1 then they're established and they wont fall apart.
