I'm sorry, but that's physically impossible.

NCPA = national COLLEGIATE paintball association

It's a college league. You have to be a full-time student at a degree granting institution. There really are no official high school teams, probably because of the numbers. University = 30,000. High school = 100 - 5,000.

Public high school = $0 from you
College = $0 (full scholarship) to $40,000 per year.

The funding college teams recieve are built into the tuition that we pay. It's a bit of a paradox. Hope that helps. My advice is just get a few friends that play paintball and enter into local tournaments. And practice as much as possible, but keep the game fun.

The team itself is doing fantastic this year. Around 35 team members all together. Class A (X ball) is 4 and 1 for the season so far and there are no seniors on the team, so everyone will be back next year.

And this is the first year we've been able to send additional people to class AA 5 man events.

Our funding is still very very low compared with the other big schools. Check out our fan club thread: http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.php?t=1826777

Our facebook Group: http://umd.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2200326728

And a video of the team at the first event: http://youtube.com/watch?v=aeoDaVcSZnY

If there is anyelse you would like to know about the team, feel free to post on our fan club thread. And good luck with starting up a team.
