i'm not sure how funding works in a community college, but i know there's a paintball team/club at the UF in FL, and they don't get funding through the school. they have to gather their own money and sponsorships... at least, i'm pretty sure that's how it works.
there's a dive and scube club at SFCC and i know they don't get funding from the college.
i would say if you were to start a team/club in a community college that was based on a hobby, you probably won't get any help from the administration.

Isn't paintball considered an extreme sport? (the number one, i believe). And therefore not a hobby? why should High Schools and regular Colleges be able to have their own funded and sponsored teams, yet Community Colleges get left in the dust?

i stopped by the admin office the other day and tried to find out what i could about starting a community college team. appearantly, it's really not that hard. all i have to do is fill out some paperwork and write some "club constitution" and find some members/players for the diplomatic stuffs.
and here's the best part: i CAN get funding from the school!

I did that. Basically I started doing his job, I went to student activities and got the names changed over etc. If you guys have a bank account then get that switched over too. Our team was pretty much done when I came in, so bringing it back up was some work, but it can be done. Also, have to check with your student activities/club office to see what the procedure is to change leadership.
