This thread is for the organization of the future North West conference of the National Collegiate Paintball Association (NCPA).
(edit: I am still involved with the UW club/team, but am no longer a student and do not have the time to try and organize a NW NCPA Conference anymore. If anybody out there wants to take over and get this thing going, please post up in this thread. Somebody needs to step up and organize an event if this is ever going to happen.)
-Lets use this thread to get the NW NCPA conference off the ground.
-If you are on a college team (or are trying to get one started), please post here and mention which college you attend.
-If you know of other North West college clubs / teams or college players, please direct them to this thread so they can get involved.
-If you have any questions about running a college club / team, post them here so that those who are part of successful programs can help you out and share their experiences.

-In order to start a NW conference of the NCPA, we need a minimum of 4 college teams.
-College teams DO NOT need to be recognized by their school in order to compete, however there are many benefits for being an official school organization.
-NCPA Class AA tournaments are 5-man format. Games last 5 minutes and use modified NPPL rules.
-Entry fees range from $50 - $150 per team, per tournament.
-Registration for NCPA tournaments is through APPA. All players must be registered on APPA.
-All players on a team's roster for any NCPA tournament must be full-time students at their respective colleges during the quarter/semester of the tournament.
-If you attend a campus extension, and your college's main campus has a team, you are eligible to compete on their NCPA team as long as you're a full-time student. For example, UW Seattle has a club / team, but the Bothell and Tacoma campuses do not. UW Bothell and UW Tacoma students can be rostered on the "Seattle" team.
-College teams can compete in any tournament or series they want (local and national). College teams are not obligated to compete only in the NCPA.
-College teams can enter as many teams as they'd like into NCPA events.
-Players of college teams ARE allowed to be rostered on non-collegiate teams. For example, if a player on CDR was a full-time student at WWU, they can compete on the WWU college team at NCPA events (as long as CDR allows it).
