one problem with highschool paintball is that my school requires that anyone can join, leagly you must be 18 to but a gun and thus only 18 year olds can join, we tried the whole make parents sign a wavier simliar to thos on the field but we still couldent start it

if it helps more insurance claims of injury have occered from golf than paintball over the past years

forget a team my high school barely let me put up posters trying to get a team together
I'm not obsessed, I'm passionate

There's no "I" in team.
And there's no "U" in team, either.
So if I'm not on the team, and you're not on the team, then nobody's on the damn team! The team sucks!

I think havin high school paintball teams is a rly good idea theres enough people for it, its a legit sport, u just gotta get everyone to loo past it as a saftey pre-caution nd rather as a sport just like football hockey lacrosee, etc

i tried this in the begining of the school year and i did pretty much everything you guys are saying.
I made a power point about how great of a sport and how safe it is, went to local fields and because im cool with the owners got them to give flyers out about a hs paintball team.
and when i talked to administration i was told it still promotes violence school and that the school would still be liable if anything was to happen, so yea.....
good luck to everyone lol

do the administrators realize that some colleges have paintball teams? thus high school paintball could some day in the future lead to paintball related college scholarships? also why not talk to your parents about bringing up the options of school teams to at PTA or school board meetings?

a student is a lot easier to deny than a parent, and even better a large group of parents. with enough pressure from the community on the schools and the school board they will eventually give you what you want.
so educate your community about paintball, talk to your neighbors and friends, get everyone possible involved in convincing the schools that paintball is a good idea. heck, maybe some local police or firefighters play paintball, and could use their highly respected positions to help the cause. you would also have to figure out, if you want a school team, how the school would pay for it; and in my opinion, THAT is the hard part.

i may be shunned for bringing this up. but a certain guy made a video about this, and has some very useful points in it.

never try to start a club through a school. like this guy said, you could be blamed for the school getting shot up with paintballs(which has happened to my school).

and when most people hear paintball, they think guns. allthough politically incorrect they still think that and that causes people to associate bad things with the sport.

my team started with me wearing a planet eclipse t shirt to school. if you do that, you may find unexpected possible teammates. but my team is also halfway made up of people we met on here. this is a great way to meet new potential teammates.

so all in all dont try to start a team through school. its better to just start one by just spreading the word, and hopefully you will have yourself a team.

NCPA is really starting to promote high school paintball clubs/teams so it could really go one way or the other depending on how well you represent the sport and present it to your administrator. and every school is different so it varies from district to district.

I've actually just sent an essay in to my high school about begining a paintball club. In the paper, i made sure not to use any words relating to guns, and gave a basic definition of paintball. We are still waiting for an answer, but we sent letters to the administration, student councils, and newspapers of around 30 or so schools in the region about beginning their own so we have a level playing field instead of constantly playin professional and amateur teams. In the letters to other schools and my own, i mentioned that we will not use any money from the school, sign liability waivers at our paintball location, and how i sent letters to other schools. Essentially, all we asked for was permission to use the schools name for our club.
