In 2017, during a recball event at Paintball Mirabel. A client and longtime friend of Fort Ouest, Mr. Bouchard questioned the owner of Fort Ouest, Mr. Fournier about having a speedball team at Fort Ouest. The discussion then started and plans were made during the year. Fort Ouest managed to buy a franchise in the MIPL.
A year later, a team was born, the Westnutcrackerzs (2018 season, ranked 14th out of 15 teams). The beginnings were somewhat difficult. But like any good "warrior", we roll up our sleeves and we never give up!
1 year later, in 2019, The Kings is reborn with 2 members of the old team and a few new players join us. The 2019 season was much better, as the team ranked 6th out of 15 teams. That year, the team moved back in and managed to get back on track. It is therefore proof that when a team is well united and there is a good attitude within the team, anything is possible. For a 2nd year of participation in the MIPL, a 6th place gives the desire to improve! We are proud of our players!
In 2020, we are entering a third year in the MIPL. Some of the original players have made it to higher level leagues, but they still help us in the ST3 Division of the MIPL. Some even travel to the United States to participate in tournaments. The team name remains The Kings.
In 2020, more than twenty teams will be in the ST3 Division ... they are already practicing in the snow and at temperatures of -20 degrees Celsius ... the coming season promises to be "hot"!
The 2020 Season
Several new members in 2020. The boys are so looking forward to the new season that they are even practicing at -20 in the snow!
The league we are competing in
The MIPL is a paintball league entirely dedicated to players from beginner to intermediate levels of the Speedball type. The infrastructures are most professional and secure. The site is permanent and is being built on the premises of the Paintball Mirabel recreation center. Two fields are available at events, one of which is recognized worldwide for its quality that exceeds industry standards because it is made of high quality synthetic grass and the second is made of natural grass.
