Here is what normally works:
-Your school probably already has some kind of paintball event that they run every year or so e.g. the Rutgers club got started because the Rutgers student activity office sponsored a trip to Skirmish every year. On the bus ride back is when the first officers met and decided to start the club.
-If your school doesn't have the above, start going to your RA/Dorm Administrator/Other clubs/Fraternities/Student Council and offer to organize a recball event at a local field. That's the quickest way to find a lot of people who are at least interested in paintball. Plus, down the road, the local field owner will love you for bringing lots of customers to him.
-At the end of each rec event, make an announcement that you are looking to start a club. You'll generally find a couple people who think that's cool.
-Once you have 5-6 people, you can go to your school's Club office and ask what's required to start a club. Usually, it's just a certain number of people and sometimes a faculty advisor.
You don't need to be officially recognized to compete in NCPA events. As long as everyone on your team goes to the same school you're good.
That's most of it right there. If you have any questions, feel free to post them here or in the College Forum.
You can also come down to Long Live Paintball which is where Rutgers is practising almost every weekend.
