Looking for first tourney

I'm a newish paintball player looking to get my ranking up in APPA. I just signed up and got my id # etc.

My question is, How do I find a D6(?) tourney? I looked on the APPA website and it seems that you can't search based on division. Whats the right way to go about this?

Thank you for your help!

You don't have to start in D6, you can sign up for any tournament that you have the cash to play up to a point. My first was a D4, most of the other members on my team have at least one D3 tournament but play D4.

You're best bet is to find a local or small regional tournament close to you to minimize expenses. Also, smaller tournaments often have teams looking for that fifth/last man, and you can jump in.

3 mans are also a good place to start. aside from the occasional sandbagger, they are usually filled with people that have little to no experience across a wide range of ages

The only D6 tournaments I've ever heard of have been in Canada. I'd recommend a 3-man tournament if you are just looking to get your feet wet.

The Illinois regional forum is a great place to start. You've kinda come in at the end of the summer season, so keep watching for some tournaments in the fall and winter. O'Hare Paintball will likely have their "Freezin' Ballz" series later this year, and Paintball Explosion might have a beginners tournament as well.

You can start by playing your local series. That's how everyone got to where they are today.
