High School Regional Championships Q&A thread

For general information, dates, etc, visit www.college-paintball.com/high.

Basic Info:
- Does my school have to recognize the team? (No)
- Does my school need to qualify? (No)
- What if I can't find anyone at my school to play?
- Who is eligible?
- What are the limited paint rules?

Does my school have to recognize the team?

No. No school recognition is necessary. The only requirement is that all players on your team attend the same high school, or would attend the same high school if they were public high school students (see below).

Does my school need to qualify?

No. No tournament experience what-so-ever is necessary, and new teams are especially encouraged to attend.

What if I can't find anyone at my school to play?

The high school events are designed primarily to be inexpensive and fun, so make sure you are including anyone who might like to play some paintball. Everyone is limited to players from their own school, so you will probably have to pick up some players with varying levels of experience. You can also look to private or home-schooled players who would otherwise go to your high school, or junior high students who will eventually attend your high school in the future.

Remember, this is your chance to get friends at your school out to play some paintball!

Who is eligible?

The key test of eligibility is whether all members of a team are students would attend the same public high school if they were all enrolled in public high school, or all members of a team are currently students at the same school.

Examples of eligible teams:

- Students who attend the same public high school
- Students who attend the same public high school plus a home-schooled students who would attend that school if they enrolled in public school
- Students at the same private school
- Home schooled students who would attend the same public high school if they enrolled in public school
- A public high school student, a private school student, and a home schooled student who would attend the same public high school if they were enrolled in public high school
- Students at the same junior high school
- Students at a public high school plus junior high school students who will eventually attend that public high school

Examples of ineligible teams:

- Any players that have graduated high school
- Home schooled students who would not be enrolled in the same public high school
- Private school students from more than one school who would not be enrolled in the same high school
- Students who go to different public high schools in the same school district

What are the limited paint rules?

To keep the events inexpensive and fun, the amount of paint brought on the field each game is limited. A team may enter the field EITHER with full, standard-sized hoppers, OR may enter the field with empty hoppers and up to four 140-round pods of paint.


More questions? Ask here.

My team is gonna be set up like this, just making sure it's legal. Two players from my own school which is a magnet school. A 8th grader who is going to be going to the magnet school next school year, and a sophomore who goes to private school but otherwise would be going to the magnet school.

You're good up to the sophomore, unless you'd all be going to the same public high school.

200 rounds. How long you choose to take to shoot them (in semi-auto) is up to you.

Wait if we win the trip to nats we need an adult chaperone to go with us? Why is that? What if the kids are 18 and 17 with permission from the adults? I've been to PSP events unaccompanied and my parents have been fine with it.

There are two issues - supervision and logistics. We want parents there to make sure you are supervised. Additionally, since you're 18, it's not like you can rent a car, and it's 40 minutes from the major airports to the hotels, and 10-20 minutes from the hotels to the field.

That said, if I can talk to your parents and I am confident both issues are handled I *MAY* make an exception.

if your team end up winning, cannot make nationals, can you just take the 1000 in $ instead of travel costs?

No. The travel reimbursement is for teams to come and compete at Nationals. If you're not coming to compete at Nationals, then you have no need for a travel reimbursement.

You either get 3 full hoppers on the field (everyone plays hopper ball)

OR

3 empty hoppers and 4x 140 round pods (basically someone gets a reload, the other guys are playing hopper ball)

this equals out since 4x140 = 560 pballs

or 3x(150 to 200 depending on the hopper) = 450-600 pballs
