join in for a few points during practice.
see how you do
but.... things to work on to be a great paintballer....
-off hand work, ie becoming ambidextrous
-run n gun
-teamwork (crossing the field up, layin paint for a bump, etc)
rec to d3 is a big jump
rec to d5 then d3/4 is more common
maybe before your first d3 event, try to get a spot on a d5 team and get an event under your belt (if you've never experienced a tourny, it would be helpful, its a different day of play compared to rec ball)
i read you've only been playin rec for a few months, and have a newer join date, i will guess you have very little (if any) tourny experience, and maybe very little pb experience, dont want you do get blown away and hate it in your first event.
i have my own pb program (2 pump teams, 2 young guns, 2 D5's) i have guys who have been rec ballers for 2-3-4-5 years, and still get blown away in tourny's, but hold their own in recball
im not saying DONT do the jump from rec to D3, im just saying you might want to take it a little slower.... make sure you understand what your in for
