DJ “Honu” Fox, is the Captain of Hellions Paintball Team, based out of CPX in Joliet, IL. and has been with the team for over five years. DJ and his Hellions average 8-10 large events a year, with a majority of those in the Midwest and Great Lakes areas. “My team is a constant award winner at games and myself I have won Victorious Commander for LL3 and I was the MVP of LL4. I would like to thank Valken for the chance to represent them in the Valken corps. Valken’s commitment to scenario and the overall growth of the sport is something I’m proud to be a part of”, stated the newly appointed GLRC, DJ “Honu” Fox. For more details on the Great Lakes Region of the Valken Corps or to coordinate regional games, practices or events with DJ, please visit his Facebook page.
The Valken Corps is a band of paintball players who reach out beyond their own team or group, to unite with other like-minded individuals and come together on a larger scale to enjoy the game of paintball. The goal is to give paintball players what they want – more paintball – by creating a network of players that share advice, support local fields and shops and contribute to the growth of the game. The Valken Corps highlights the fields, stores, events, teams and individuals that help make paintball the obsession we all know and love.
The U.S. Corps is divided in to 10 regions to help players connect with other locals and to help organize fields, teams and events. There are also Canadian Provincial Corps and European Corps countries, as well. Each will have a Regional Commander (RC), whose duties include leading Valken Corps players on the field and organizing Valken Corps players and teams off the field. Valken Corps Regional Commanders are a dedicated group of volunteer players with leadership experience both on and off the paintball field.
Valken Paintball will be announcing more Regional Commanders in the coming days. For more information on Valken, visit www.valkenpaintball.com and follow them on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ValkenSports or Twitter at www.twitter.com/ValkenSports

GI Sportz Paintball products are manufactured by Procaps® Paintball (A subsidiary of G.I. Sportz, Inc.) using environmentally friendly original PEG & EcoFillTM formulas. Procaps also manufactures VForce Vision Systems® Paintball goggles. Procaps DirectTM distributes a full line of quality Paintball gear through an ever-growing USA Paintball Dealer network.
Procaps’ GI Sportz™ paintballs and banners will once again fly proudly over the PSP League’s tournament fields across the USA, bringing last year’s most victorious GI brand back to the sport’s premiere Pro/Am league. In 2010, Teams shooting GI Sportz paint won all but one of the PSP Events, which represent the best-attended and most professional presentation of the tournament aspect of our great sport. Procaps/GI Sportz embraces the PSP’s long term achievements in overall excellence and innovation. Considering their consistently superior Team attendance and Dealer participation, the decision was clear to support the League that has earned the widest acceptance among participants.
For years, the industry’s main manufacturers have urged the two main leagues to merge, in order to achieve two fundamental goals. First, to form a clear, One-League path to encourage tournament players to escalate through the ranks from Novice, to Amateur, and ultimately to Pro divisions, thus extending their participation in Paintball for years. Every other sport follows this simple One-League formula, without subjecting Teams to the immensely expensive distraction of having to play in multiple leagues.
Secondly, for years, major industry sponsors have made it crystal clear that the immense financial burden of sponsoring both Leagues was simply unsustainable. With two Leagues, 2012 would bring TEN EVENTS, which would demand nearly half a million dollars in costs including sponsorship fees, travel, event staffing & lodging. Since the merger talks began, the troubled economy has caused a reduction in overall Paintball participation, while manufacturing costs have continued to escalate sharply. This new financial reality has simply killed the failed two-League option in its tracks.
Like businesses in many Countries around the world, the Paintball industry must adapt to the realities of surviving in a world recession. In a time when Paintball urgently needs a strong, unified approach to growing our sport once again, the PSP represents the single best option at this pivotal time in our history, and we invite you, the Players, Teams and Dealers, to join us for this exciting tournament season.
GI Sportz Paintball products are manufactured by Procaps® Paintball (A subsidiary of G.I. Sportz, Inc.) using environmentally friendly original PEG & EcoFill™ formulas. Procaps also manufactures DXS™/DraXxuS® Paintball products & VForce Vision Systems® Paintball goggles.
