1.Learn to snapshoot
2.Comunicate with your team
3.Don't get tunneled vision
4.Arrive to the field early to rent gear or set up
5.Check prices online if possible to speed up registration process
6.For 18 yrs or less, always bring a signed waiver
7.Bring at least 2 gallons of water/person
8.Bring food
9.If you have your own gear make sure to bring tools and spare parts

PLEASE ADD MORE. I WANT TO HELP THE BEGINNERS.

biggest tip i can give to a new player is pay attention to the safety video/demonstration. in the last year i have had to run across the field and tackle someone who took their mask off while play is still going.
so my tip to beginner players is
mask on and have fun.
be prepared for the weather. this means if it is hot bring lots of water if it is cold wear proper clothes.

And possibly buy a ton of frustration.

For new players I almost always suggest to buy new gear. Yes, you can save money buying used but if you don't know what to look for to see if a marker has been properly maintained, don't know how to work on a marker, aren't good at troubleshooting problems, or are not very mechanically inclined, buying used can bring about a number of its own problems. If you buy new, you have a store who can answer your questions, guide you in how to maintain the marker, and a waranty in case something major is wrong with the marker.

I think a better tip is to spend your money wisely. There is a time to be frugal, and there is a time to understand intangible value.

The biggest tip is to ask questions. Feel free to ask about something if you don't know, most players will help you out. It's when you show up for the first time and you act like you know it all that makes people not like you or treat you with respect.

Biggest tip I can give to beginners is just have fun and not be discouraged for not having the best gear, Just remember we all started somewhere!

i do work as a ref at times. i should clarify the tackle was more of a get on the ground and cover his head till we could get his mask back on.
