Team Sigma Charter
Team Sigma is an outgrowth of the scenario team Delta Ops, from whom
separated to concentrate on tournament woodsball. The core of the team is made from members who participated in the SPPL MI
qualifier in August of 2006 and won our first Sportsmanship Award.
The mission of Team Sigma is to be active within the Woodsball tournament
community, known as a group that exhibits exceptional sportsmanship at all times, and at all times remembers paintball for
what it is; a game (albeit, a very fun one). The primary purpose of the team is to participate in SPPL and similar events,
although scenario and “big” games may be attended as a form of practice.
Play Safe, Play Hard, Have Fun!
To always be an honorable mention for sportsmanship at all SPPL events we attend.
To have the highest level of sportsmanship at all times.
To compete to the best of our abilities, and continuously improve.
To help the sport of paintball, especially woodsball, grow.
At an SPPL (or similar) event Team Sigma will always defer the coin toss to allow any team that we
a higher score than.
If elements of Team Sigma end up opposing each other at an event, we will always compete with full
determination and resolve.
