HAVE FUN!!!

Don't be afraid to be aggressive. Long balling people is fun, but charging up the field is a rush.

Do not be afraid of being aggressive. Do not focus on one particular section of the field (tunnel Vision) or focus on getting one guy out. Try to get into a good position so you can have a good angle on someone else.

when I am playing a game that's 2v2 or 3v3 I personaly love being agressive, and charge down the feild while spraying my openets bunker and either side of the bunker, while flanking them.

I don't know how this would work though against somone he plays losts of tournys

Truthfully that most likely would not work. The more you play the less you become afraid of being shot and thus just spraying the bunker doesnt do anything. In your situation the best bet is the put the person in with a few shots then move. Dont show where you are in relation to your opponent. Surprise rather than blunt force works best.

Tips:

1) Walk the field. Walk the Field. Oh and WALK THE FIELD. Go to each bunker and look where you can get shot, not where you can shoot.

2)Snapshooting. Practice it, Alot.

3) Keep your marker up at all times. You cant shoot someone out if you barrel is pointing at the ground.

4) Communication.

5) Practice, Practice, Practice.

6) have fun.

when communicating, make sure you are specific. if there's 2 cans on the left side, dont just say "can". say like "front/back can". snapshooting is very important. but having fun is the most important thing. the first time i played in a speedball tourney, my team took 2nd to last, but i had a blast!
