Fairly New to Paintball

Hey guys I am I would say a very beginner I do have a gun and have played a couple of woods ball matches. I am looking to play a lot more and eventually join a team and enter competitions. The reason I joined this forum was to learn some practice tips and learn basic skills that I must know in order to make myself into the better player I wish to become. So that being said I am open to any tips trick, practice routines, or just some helpful info that will help me reach my goal.

Welcome!

Big things would be communication between your teammates and play aggressively

Practice snap shooting A TON. Also, make sure you learn to shoot with both hands equally or almost. Practice your dolphin dives, and hit the fields a lot!
Welcome to the sport btw.

Well that about sums it up.

Welcome to the sport!

Youtube is your friend! there are so many videos of games at your fingertips. Do your best at analyzing what players are doing on the field to get a better idea of game mechanics.

Go to your regional forums on here, and look there for teams. That's your best bet. Or visit your local field where teams play at and talk to them.

one thing I would say because everyone recommended the things I would say is when playing aggressive you really need to know how to move. You really need to know when it is good to move and when if you move you will get hit out. Mainly you need to practice to know this.

welcome to the crazy world of pbnation!
i would say the most valuable thing to learn is to be able to gun battle. if you learn this you will have success. this includes snap shooting as well
