Anyone can play snake. They usually send small people there first because they don't stick out on the knuckles and they can get into tight spaces, easier than a 5'9 person. I'd give it a shot, if you like then go for it. If not you can always play Mid or Front.

play what ever position you want. o mean im 6'3 and i play the snake some times or back. i Play mid so i end up every where. just when you are in different spot play them differently to fit your size.

[at your size the snake should be your home, because you are pretty small and you will be able to move pretty well in the
snake.] <<< disregard that i could have sworn i read 5'3 i don't know why i thought that lol

5'9? I don't think that's tiny for a Snake Player, I think it's fairly big. The Snake player on our team is 5'5 if not smaller.

possibly try taking up the Mid position, Mid fills key spots that are lost, so when you play mid you even up everywhere, back corners, doritos, snake

shes not talking about being a girl, she talking about being tall.......

personally, im 6' and have a hard time playing snake, my snake player is around 5'5" i usually play mid/front depending if we were playing 3 or 5man........ so mid/front is probably a good place for you too

well playing as a girl is no different than playing as a guy....... except when you win you get to hear "man, i just got beat by a girl" lol

but its all about confidence and strategy......but confident is the most important, last tourney we went up against a D2 team that was undefeated ALL day........ and we completely rolled over them, no one could beleive it.... but we were confident and hit them hard and fast, and they couldnt even make a game plan.

but with practice, strategy, and confidence you will go far

there are no tips for playing "as a girl". This isnt stricktly a mans sport, it's a co-ed sport. So if you go into a game thinking, "o im a girl there way better" you will lose. Confidence is key.

"best posissions for a 5'9'' girl to play?"


No need to mention girl, won't make a difference heh.

Front- stay aggressive and tight.
Mid- Communicate and be versatile.
Back- Support and lay down ropes.

5'9" Player can do any of those at their optimum levels.

Anybody can play anywhere really....I'm 6'5" and I've played snake, I didn't have much success and got shot out within 10 seconds but I can still play it. Wherever you feel most comfortable, personally I just let all the little people crawl around in the snake while I yell at them to shoot things, I think it's more fun.

yea...there is a difference between playing and playing well.......if you are trying to win a tourney it isnt a good idea to put somone that is almost 6' or taller in the snake, 5'5" is the perfect size for playing snake.....being taller is best for playing back, because you can get a better view of the field, but when it comes to the rest of the field, size really dosnt matter.

The position you play depends a few things, one of them is your speed, how fast you can hit your bunkers. If you arnt that fast i dont recomend playing snake. I dont think hieght is that big of an issue, as long as you can stay low.
I dont like you

I'm a guy, but i'm about 6'1 and was able to play an entire tournament at snake and did fairly well.

i'm sure you could do any position that you want. you aren't too big to play anywhere on the field.
whatever you do, play fast on confident. a player with a spyder and confidence can do better then some punk kid with an ego, just remember that.

hm, id say play dorito side. i agress with some of the guys in here, 5'9 isnt the best size to play snake. im 5 10 and i love dorito side because i get the same rush and openings as snake (to some degree) and i fit behind the bunkers.

I'm 5'9" and I always play snake, and I'm fairly good at it. I don't find myself having trouble playing tight or anything (once I got shot in the pack, but that was sloppy playing and I wasn't moving up).
I'd say go for it, as long as you have no fear of superman sliding.

I'll try to explain this.

If you can stay tight to bunkers, it shouldn't really matter how tall you are playing snake. Becuase if you're snap shooting while staying low in the snake like you should be, you should only get shot in like the forearms/mask/marker. So unless you have a MASSIVE face, anyone can play snake if you want to.

:D

Hope that helped.
