Coming Up To Almost A Full Year Without Blog Posts

So here at ThisISPaintball.ca we decided that we would be silent for one full year from writing blog posts about paintball events, league updates, product reviews or new releases to show our concern over where the industry is heading and how the loss of the core values which paintball once held were really being throw to the side in the search for profits.

While there has not really been many of those issues disappear ThisISPaintball.ca is starting to create and share content again but will only be showcasing news from those companies which are building a healthy paintball industry and trying to showcase the local events which are really supporting true players which are keeping the industry afloat with buying & paying for their products.

Good luck to all teams & players in the 2011 season hopefully lessons can be noticed to the failures in the past few years in the paintball industry and adjustments made to make sure the sport keeps growing in the correct fashion without forgetting where the sport started off from.

PSP Supporting League Program

Paintball Sports Promotions Is Teaming Up with Local and Regional RaceTo Leagues

Last month, the PSP announced its affiliation with six regional leagues forming the Unified National & Regional RaceTo Format.  These affiliated leagues are working together to provide a consistent experience for players across leagues and divisions, as well as creating a universal player ranking in conjunction with the APPA that fits both the regional and national levels.

Now the PSP would like to announce a program for local leagues; the PSP Supporting League program.

PSP Supporting Leagues are committed to further establishing the RaceTo Format as the standard in tournament paintball.  These leagues abide by PSP Rules (with minor modifications) and use the UCP Classification System in association with the APPA.  The PSP assists Supporting Leagues with prize packages, league promotion and offer assistance with improving and establishing a solid reffing program.  If you are a tournament operator who believes in promoting the RaceTo format and are interested in assistance with prizes as well as promoting your league, please email Camille Lemanski at camille@pspevents.com for more information on how you can become a 2010 PSP Supporting League.
