I live in Suburban boston and I head out to Springfield to visit, hang and play with my ex-teammates and friends,a dn the times I've played out there, we went to Xtreme.
I've got to habd it to them, I absolutely love thier field. The atmosphere is 100% laid-back and the staff and owner are extremely friendly.
The safety is lacking, there is no netting for the speedball field, but staging is a good 100 yards away, out of range. The woodsball field is far from staging and there is netting around much of it.
The refs were great helps with what they did. the paint and food is amazing and there was ample competition.
I'm planning on visiting again
Thanks for the kind words. Just wanted to address the netting issue so that people dont assume we're leaving it that way.
We do have the netting (enough to fully net 2 fields). The only problem is we've run into numerous problems getting the poles to the field (kinda hard to transport 50 telephone poles). They'll be up before the start of the speedball season in February and we'll have 2 fields netted off at that time.
This is the manager, I would like to comment on the "lacking of safty"
Safty is always first and I over see that issue, everyone gets a warning, then the the refs will take the gun and that player will sit down a game and the third offense they can't play for rest of the day. I myslef had pull this every day where open.
Where very strict on safty, but refs never see everything everytime, its up to other players also to say something like "put your condom on" and such.
I watch my refs through out the day and I do yell at them Iif i catch them doing something or not doing something.
Just to let you know this month we had a player in woods whos mask feel off during a game, the game was stopped and the players mask was put on all within one minute and me and joe ran out with mask to make sure that player was alright.
If you see something let Joe or me know and that problem will be taken care of.
The netting, yes out netting isn't up, but during the summer we had people in staging have mask on or they where in there car with windows up. Like jow said the nettin is going up once we the the poles down to the field.
EDIT: MADE A MISTAKE IN GRAMMER JUST FIXXED IT
