School PB clubs...

Have any of you tried to start a paintball club at ur school????
If so how did it work out?
Me and my friend wanna start one but we're not sure if it's worth it or if we should just keep getting together to play for the heck of it like we have been??

It's a good idea if your planning on going to college and don't have any extra-curricular activities that you want to do at your school. Starting a club is a major on your application. Just make sure you keep it going. (Oh and see if you can use your gymnasium for reball practices. If not i'm sure a local field will give your 'club' free entry and a discount on paint). If your not planning on going to a college.... no it's really not worth it. You probably wont have any good players in the club, and it's A LOT of work to get it up and running.

yeah, you will have about 5 of those that actually show.

the problem with a school team/club is anyone who really plays already has a field they prefer and most likely a team. also, paintball season spreads between 2 seperate school years, so you will lose people halfway through every season.

Just what exactly would the advantages of having a school club be?

if i started one.. i would make a power point or a poster explaining its safe, a sport (which it is), fun, and can teach you to invest money and stuff.. its a great idea but i don't know if my friends would like to start one but its either "YEAH THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!!" or " ARE YOU JOKING!" or "WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU, YOUR HIGH" yeah pretty much what would happen

get students and teachers to sign a petition and do some research and show it to your principle... cuz it was proved to be safer than football, tennis, and baseball

yeah some of us are going to try to make a school team or club and if we can make a team join that high school league that's on the fsn site. the only problem is that we go to a really small school (about 500 people) and there are only about 8 of us who really play and are good at paintball. so we have to overcome that obstacle.
