Getting my 10 year old into paintball

Anybody have any tips or suggestions I bought him a Etek 3 a rotor a i4 and as of right now he has a ninja 68/4500 he's a little on the small side so I also got him a remote line with a pod pack that holds the tank I plan on taking him to play some woods ball first

Sounds like he's ready to go. Just keep an eye on him and play with him on your team. It will be a lot of fun for both of you.

Get him a smaller tank . My son has been using a 50/45 tank since he started (he was 8 - now 13 ) , he uses it when he play with electro and pump . Biggest thing is make sure he is having fun - you will have great times together.

Pad him up. Put an under jersey padded vest, arm pads and gloves. It's the hard hits that scare youngins off. My son started at age 9. I padded him up and he's now 12 and fearless! Lol He started with a mini and 48/4500 to keep the weight down. This Christmas he got all new gear. He loves his new Etek 5 stretch poison and Virtue III.

Gear for the little ones is hard to find. My 10 year old step-son recently started playing, along with my 12 year old daughter. My daughter is tall so gear is easy to find, but for my step son finding gear in youth sizes is a little harder. Combine that with very few brick and mortar stores around to try stuff on him and its worse.

As far as the experience, he lasted a few games only getting shot in the mask, then took one to the shoulder and cried for a few minutes. He got over it and went out again to love it. I reminded him that the pain just reminds us we did something stupid, and that the first hit is the worst.

I'm looking to get a youth game going and have a bunch of kids go after each other. I think it'd be pretty good for them to challenge other kids the same age.

I bought the exalt padded shirt for my son in youth but had to make some modifications cause it was still to big but it worked out. Put a long sleeve shirt over the top and he was ready to go

I had a great experience with Chris from Undr. He made my son a custom pair of joggers. I had to wait about 4 weeks but nice and light with good padding in knees and shin. The custom size was the same price as his normal ones. He responded to Facebook messenger almost immediately.
