Unfortunately only practice once a month and play a tournament once a month. Would like to bump it up a bit.

Our team practices every sunday from September to April, with tournaments instead of practices two or three times a semester.

We practice year round, every sunday of the month, except for holiday sundays, and we play in at least one tournament a month.

If you got the funds and the time.
Set up two days grinds. the weekend before the tournament. On the tournament layout if possible.
Other then that grind as much as possible. Work on drills but don't neglect the having fun part of paintball.

I'm always practicing.. Either I'm running to stay in shape and training my reflexes in a Full sprint or actually playing and shooting other people.. Grinding is 24/7 not just 1 or 2 days a week in my eyes..

Ive got a year to prepare my self to become what I've been dreaming of every since i fell in love with this sport. A Pro Paintball Player. Ill be training and playing with a local team until then, I've got my brother, he could be considered a athletic trainer. He will be putting me into a 4 day workout schedule. Ill be focusing on explosive core workouts with muscle focused workouts, if yall want me to start a thread and i can post my results and practice. Im even thinking of a video, something inspirational but something different. I dont know yet, but this is what i want, who ill be and where ill be in a year.

Practice for paintball requies training outside of shooting.
- You don't need to shoot every practice. See if a field will let you work on the field mid week. Offer to clean up and pick up paint in return.
- Run suicides from bunker to bunker. Work on sliding into a tucked in position.
- Work on snap shooting a lane. Muscle memory is key for this to work fast and efficient. Shot in front of a player to hit them. Shooting at them while moving only hits behind them.

We practice every other weekend, usually run drills and intermix games all day long. We try to schedule a few scrimmages a year with some of the better teams in the area.
Best thing to do is train a few times a week, be it at home with just conditioning or doing some gun exercises in your room.
When I run I will carry my pod pack with a few old pods filled with concrete and I'll put a few in with my other pods during practices as well. This helps me run with more weight than I'd carry at an event and be even faster.

"By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work"... and picked up his sick Gat and mowed the faces which he had just created. And thus, Sunday . I also do simple gun drills just sitting around at home on a regular basis. Snapping, hand switching, shooting while filling, etc. Make every motion on the field first nature, screw second .
