University of South Carolina Paintball Team

Me and a friend of mine will be transferring to South Carolina next semester. I have looked and USC-Columbia is not listed to have a paintball team and i have seen some posts in the past about starting one and was just curious if there was any progress with this any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.

All i know is that it has been tried multiple times to start a team and each time it just fell through. I think a big issue was funding. But if anyone is trying to get one started or interested in starting one send me a pm and we can see if we can get something going.

I actually go to USC and play paintball with a few other guys at USC. We had an idea to start a team/club, but the NCPA is a pretty intense division so we decided to start a team and play CFOA and see where things go from there. In the future I definitely would love for there to be a USC team but right now we are just trying to get something started in Columbia. We are usually at Ballbusters every weekend so if yall want to ball together some time just holler at me.

I live in maryland and am transferring down there, I'm looking at the places you guys have mentioned, and I'm very disappointed from what I'm reading on their websites, and seeing from the pbnation page. Where is a quality speedball place? and $60 a case? get ****ed. Im going to miss my home field lol

I remember like 5 years ago when I played D6 3 man in CFOA, they had a 3man team but they stunk. Played like 2 or 3 events and stopped coming. I go to USC Upstate. I know we don't have one as of now.

Ballbusters recently got a new or newer field. Trying to get their speedball going again I believe.

even if you don't play in ncpa you should still set up a official club that's recognized my the school, that's what we are doing here at ccu, we are playing cfoa until our club gets more established then going to join in on ncpa events

That is what I am hoping to get going. How long does it normally take to become "established" as a team?

yeah we have looked into it, we need 7 people and a teacher to sign it, and just haven't found that many people yet. That's a good idea though.

we needed 10 people to start ours, we simply made over 100 flyers and posted them all over dorms and classrooms and dining halls, within a few days we had lots of people calling asking to join

Hey guys, wassup? I'm one of the guys who's trying to get this going up here. Ballbusters is a pretty good field, but we need to rearrange their speedball field for sure.
