I say skill limit becaus you have the kids who started tournys at a young age like me i started when i was 11 went to national events at 13 and im now only 14 and i dont think its fair to the newer players to have people that are "of age" go out there and shoot them up, because they signed up for an easier bracket intending to not get shoot up

When you know what you want and you focus upon what you want and keep heading towards what you want then eventually you will get what you want. For you must first dream before you can live the dream.

I say under 18 because you still need a parent or guardian to sign for you on release forms....

I had to borrow gear for years before i got a tippmann and a mask for my birthday. I was grateful for everything and tried to learn as much as possible.

Young guns deserve respect, even though they're annoying sometimes, we were all like them on our first time out.
thats the way i started i really didnt play any tournys till about 15 an and went straight to open classes! our local tournys have a beginner, rookie an an open class so any one that is new to the sport at all plays beginner no matter what age its all skill! well thats here in south west texas!
