Question on College teams? (TX)

ok I have heard that colleges such as A&M and other texas colleges have paintball teams. is this true? if so are they just a bunch of guys that go by the name of teh college they go to or are they directly linked to the college like the A&M football team and Basketball teams

There is a league called the NCPA that we play in. Its just a group of students taking at least 12 class hours. I don't really think anyone plays actual sports with the school, and most of us aren't even recognized by the school as official teams or clubs. UNT, A&M, Tech, and TSU all have teams. We still play local tourneys like Rice does, but we do actually hold events of our own as well as a national championship.

I'm on the A&M team.

We are a club team and are officially recognized by the university. We are working on become part of the "Rec-sports" organization which will provide some kind of funding from the university itself.

We have no requirements for wanting to join our club. We take players who have never played before and teach them. All you need to have is your own equipment and sometimes we make exceptions for that. You have to be a full-time student (12 hours) and in good academic standing with the university.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions, spyder.
