yes they could but won't because it costs 25000 a year for two levels of teams and paint and tourney fees plus insurance from ncaa with firearm regulations there are two loopholes one avoid cost and call yourself a club you take the cost but it is only entry and paint so boohoo you are gonna play anyway
and two paintballmarkers are .689 caliber and not a firearm so as long as you are not brandishing it around and it is in a gearbag you are fine

TLDR No, they won't. And never bring paintball equipment to school, not even parts

1. safety
2.safety
3.Basic rules
4.local owner player testimonials
5. stress team mechanics show some drawings of drills

don't
call it a gun
don't use any slang
practice the presentation
assure them no equipment will be on campus
keep it calm be knowledgeable one impressive fact paintball is safer than football soccer tennis or any other sport out there

honestly guys you do not need to run the idea of a paintball team by the school...they wont fund you guys any way u need to find your own sponsors for that stuff...you can go play high school tournaments without the school knowing...all we did was round up a bunch of guys from the school and played the regional championships and kicked butt in it...and a top five place in national s making us one of the top highschool teams in the country...our school found out about this and then wanted to interview us for newspapers and made announcements for it and asked kids to try out and stuff...so if your patient and do good your school will find out...and it beats getting rejected after you spend hrs making speeches or powerpoints....gl all you guys trying to get the schools to recognize you
