Thumbs up UTSA Paintball Club: Round three, FIGHT!





University of Texas at San Antonio
Paintball Club
Round three, FIGHT!

12/10/11 - Constitution Created
2/11/12 - First NCPA Tournament Played (fielded 2 teams)
2/23/12 - Recognized as a School Organization
3/6/12 - Recognized as a probationary Club Sport


Hello,


It appears that all previous attempts at getting a Paintball Club started at UTSA are no longer in progress.


My name is Scott Renaud, I just graduated from Northwest Vista College and I’m transferring over to UTSA. I'm a mere three hours shy of being a Junior and I’m going for their Master in Accountancy program. My first job was actually reffing at Lonestar Paintball and I have been playing paintball for 11 years on and off now. I also have some experience running my own little team in New York for two years. And presently I'm not a part of any other team, except for our starting NCPA Team, as I plan to dedicate the last 3-3.5 years of school and my paintball efforts towards getting this club going. My personal goal is to see “paintball” listed under UTSA’s Club Sports page by the time I graduate, here: http://utsa.edu/recreation/club_sports/


With the help of my Vice President, Jake Harper (Senior), and Club Officer, Scott C. (Freshman), we’re going to start a Paintball Club at UTSA. As Business Majors we see the creation of this Club as a fun opportunity to learn some valuable skills including: teamwork, organization, leadership as well as some entrepreneur qualities which could all potentially translate over to a future career in the business world.


Our vision is to build a Paintball Club at UTSA based upon openness, attracting both new players into the sport(and thus our club), but also the seasoned speedball and tournament players. We want to grow and introduce the sport of paintball to our fellow students while providing a new avenue to make friends. And ultimately for our club to be recognized by our school and able to sustain itself after we graduate.


We already had an informal meeting as a Club and scheduled our first club practice/meet for Sunday, January 22nd 2012. We also agreed that we would be playing the NCPA event in February, regardless of practice time and skill, to show that this club is in fact actually coming to fruition.


We realize that the road to becoming official is a long one and we're prepared to put in the time and effort needed. While the beginning activities of this club are tourney related, we recognize that solely relying on already breaded tournament players to sustain a college club/team is a bad practice. Once we have established ourselves in the College Paintball world, we will start our monthly Recreational Club Meets (currently set for the end of February).


From our recreational meets, we’ll recruit players who seek a little more with their paintball adventures and are looking for a new and fun opportunity to represent our school by participating in the NCPA events. Until we get a proper foothold as a club, we’ll continue to play any NCPA events we can –regardless of skill, talent, and practice. As we grow, we’ll implement more practice time and set some basic requirements to be able to play NCPA events (such as mandatory practices, etc.). Currently, we are shooting for NCPA practices just every other month, separate from our Monthly Recreational Meets.


I thank you for your interest in the new UTSA Paintball Club and if you’re a student here, enjoy the sport of paintball, I invite you to join us.


Sincerely,




Scott Renaud
President
UTSAPaintballClub

Whats going on guys. I am very interested in this, however my situation seems to present a particular stipulation. I am an experienced tournament player who took a break for awhile due to finances and have just recently gotten back into it. I have a 3.2 GPA and I have 95 hours. The issue is that I am only able to take 11 this semester due to a class requirement. Would this mean that I would not be able to participate in any for of tournament play? If not I am still highly interested in joining this club.

Dm5Stunna, glad to see you interested in the club. I do not know for sure right know, but I will find out for you. We currently have a full 8 person roster for this upcoming NCPA San Antonio event, but if we can find enough people that will attend our first practice, are eligible to play and have the cash, we will definitely run two lines of UTSA players/students.

In the mean time, click the "join" link in my signature to stay current with what's going on with the Club.

You could most definitely join the club and participate in the monthly recreational meets. As far as tournament play, Freak and I are still looking into that.

Outstanding! I'm looking forward to meeting you all. Let me know if you guys are interested in participating in the NCPA event as well, we only need two more players to fill out two lines for the February event.

We'll keep posting on here, but our Facebook group is probably the best bet for communication and staying current on everything club related - http://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/231622383576736/

Merry Christmas fellas, I hope it's excellent!

Pre-22nd

Glad to see people getting excited about this club as the first few of us are! Freak and I discussed maybe having a little meeting on campus or somewhere close to UTSA pre-22nd practice to discuss club matters with everyone and meet any new members willing to show up that the original group hasn't met. Let us know what you think on here or fbook, would be awesome to meet you all!

Happy Early New Year and belated Merry Christmas!

Dm5Stunna,

Check your PM's. NCPA just got back to me, I need some more of your information to see if you're eligible to play the rest of this season.

Jestersss,

Unsure as I haven't played at the new location on Sunday yet. But from what I hear I think it's $5 for tourney play and $45 a case + tax for the cheaper stuff.
