as for practices, run drills. Scrimmages can be good for learning, but eventually it turns into just you guys playing and not improving your weak points. there are plenty of articles on drills to choose from, Action Pursuit Games magazine, SPLAT magazine, RECON, the specialops website, even this forum are places to find drills. My recommendation: start with personal drills of the basics: Aiming, Running and gunning, snapshooting, moving silently, etc. After you and your teammates have honed your individual basics, then start working on team drills: cover fire, leap frogging, moving as a group, etc.
Even experienced team constantly drill the basics, and once you have these drills down, go ahead and play some more scrimmages. But mix things up. Play each others positions, so you can fill in for them and understand how their position works. Play against groups better or larger than yours. Play with pumps. *PS- i love playing with pumps, it really improves your game for any aspect of this sport.*
In conclusion, there are HORDES of information regarding pracitces and drills. Read and learn, and soon you'll be dominating young padawan!

Alot can be done with a couple guys supressing and a couple more moving to the side.

PS i read gramp's article it helped a little
at practices put together 2 or 3 man squads against each other.set the scenario,execute it and then discuss what happpened and why!if you figure out your team mates weaknesses and strengths it will make your team much better at the scenarios!
ALWAYS TAKE OUT THE SUPERIOR THREAT FIRST!
ALWAYS PLAY FAIR!
NEVER UNDER ESTIMATE THE OPPOSITION!
REMEMBER IT'S A GAME!
