Starting a High School Club/Team

I am about 5 pages into writing an article on how to start a HS paintball club or team. What questions would you want answered? Would you be interested in reading such an article? If so, would such an article be worth buying a copy of a paintball magazine to read?

If you made a paintball-related article, I would read it.

You know, i have had that thought for a while now, why dont they have high school paintball teams, i think that paintball is probally one of the fastest growing sports in the u.s. and the world. So my question is, how could i convince my school to start a paintball team, i think that it would be great.

because most people dont know anything about paintball as of older adults and the thought of gun automatically triggers them into thinking its too dangerous to make a school sport and insurance stuff like that. so many things that you have to tell them and stuff.

I started a district-approved pb team at the school I taught at. My intent is to pass on the knowledge I gained from that experience.

How about instead of a guideline to how it should be made, you could write an outline for the club, the reasons for it to belong at school, and what benefits can be made through paintball.

yeah, and i would definately like to see that article when you're done. but i think another problem would be having faculty that can coach and are knowledgeable about paintball, unless somehow it could be student-run.

Yo I heard that there are more injuries and deaths in Golf than in paintball, you might want to check that out because high schools allow golf teams.
Hope this helps, Peace
