How to coach a paintball team

Hello nation, after having 2 successful seasons under our belt, we are looking to take our game to the next level. Our team is not looking to hire a new coach by any means but is really looking for ways and tips to improve (Through a coaching perspective).

Is there anyone out here that knows some tips for becoming a good team coach or has coached a paintball team before?

Tips on how a coach should guide a team through a race to 4 format or how to coach a paintball team in general would be greatly appreciated!

There are some really good coaching videos on you tube. I'd say pick some drills that your team might benefit from and start showing your guys and working them into your practices. Then after drilling get your team to try to implement those drills in some gameplay focusing on the new skills. A lot of paintball is repetition to make those skills natural

I completely agree, I will defiantly try and use some of this at the next practice, thanks for the tips!

That just what my team did in college. We didn't have a coach we were all kind of self coaching so we'd try to pick up some good drills focusing on different elements of our game/weaknesses. We'd always try to then exploit those weaknesses in our gameplay to see if our skills improved from the drills we were doing.

We started doing internal competitions. For example, early on we would setup two pie plates past a bunker. If you came out the left, you could see the left plate, if you came out the right, you could see the right one. Once the drill began, guys would have to shoot one side and switch hands as they shift to shoot out the other side of the bunker. Pretty basic. But it forced guys to switch hands (which many hated). We had a guy counting/keeping track behind the shooter. The goal was to see how long your streak of consecutive hits would last. Once finished, next man up. Who could have the highest streak by the end of that drill?

Then we'd speed it up. Who could make 20 hits on each side the fastest without missing.

There are tons of drills obviously. Point being, once we began making those drills a competition within the team, guys started pushing harder. Everyone wants to be top shot, or fastest draw, or most stable on the run, etc. Doing drills over and over can be grinding. Some guys like the grind, others hate it. So when you could quantify drills and keep track, it kept it fun too. Provides plenty of crap talking opportunities.
