The way I do it is by reffing for my field. Ask your local field if they need a ref. Then, you will get paid for your work, plus maybe even a discount on paint and entry.

help your parents around with the house and earn it from them since you cant work legally. talk to them and come to an agreement on what you can do and how much they will give you. don't do a half *** job either.

ask your neighbors if you can mow their lawns for yay$ and somebody is bond to say yes.
just make sure you ask less than the competition (and dont mention its for paintball unless they ask because some customers might not want to give you their money because of it.(idk why, but it happened to me))

When I was younger I made money from... Lawns, general yardwork, house/dog sitting, worked on cars, painting, helping people move, and a whole lot of other random manual labor.

Ask anyone and everyone you know if they need help with anything. If you do a good job and work for a reasonable price, you WILL get referrals. Referrals equal more work, which equals more money.

When I was teen the best way to make money for my sports was to become a part of the sports organization by becoming a ref or a member of facility staff. For fencing and paintball, reffing and offering to clean the facility were great ways to make money.

My wife and I donate blood plasma for paintball money - I think you have to be 16 to do this, though. Check around your area, see if there is anything wierd like this. When I was in high school, I did tutoring for extra cash, mowed lawns, fixed up random stuff for money. Once you're 16 and can get a real job, it's easier to find spare money. Until then, your best best for steady income is a paper route. See what's in your area - I did one from like 12 years old to 15, and it was something like two hundred bucks a month. Tips around christmas time, too. A lot has changed since the 90's, but I'm pretty sure paper routes are the way to go for kids.

Tell your neighbors you are trying to earn more money. If they ask what for be honest. Ask them if there are any odd jobs you could do and what they would pay you.

If some kid came up to me and asked that, i'd be glad to let you mow, split/stack wood, and do other odd jobs. My work schedule is insane so normally I end up burning one of my few days off trying to get caught up on my "chores".

I am 14 and I got a job working for my parents. I do what they want me to do and I get $100 a month. I also do odd jobs for friends and neighbors as well.
