Kids and paintball.

So I started playing paintball when I was 10 and I just turned 12. Is that a good age to be playing at or no?

I think 12 would be a great time to start in general for kids, but it would vary from person to person. As long as you are mature, responsible, and follow the rules you should be able to play. In my opinion the earlier you start the better too.

Yeah figured bc kids can be better than most adults how they can hide behind bunkers better bc they're smaller. But I really enjoy playing, I go often with a group of my friends and my dad and my friends dad.

Paintball to me didn't get really fun until I started making my own money. Once you can buy and sell your own gear paintball gets even better

Being a baller on a budget is usually the hardest part for me. I just hopped on Craigslist and haggled away

Of course, playing while school is still easy is a lot of fun. Middle school/Jr. High grades don't matter.

Your goal should be to get as good as you can, so when you are able to work/drive hopping on a divisional team won't be an issue. Get to the national skill level as quick as you can.

I'm 14 and I love paintball. Any age is a good age to start. I wish I was younger when I started. I only started a year ago

Yes, I think that's a great age. I started when I was 10 and now I'm 15 about to be 16 in October.

I am currently 15, I started back when I was 12. I have a ton of fun playing at my local fields, I think 12 is a perfect age to play.

My field is way far from me, Like across town, but I get to go once a month which kind of sucks. I'm 14. I think its really hard to get into the sport money wise at 12-14 because of money and transportation. In the state im in we get to drive at 16 and we get permits at 15 and a half.
