    Does the team need to be endorsed by their school? I am interested, but our school does not support a paintball club.

    I'm gonna force whatever school I end up at to have a paintball team....

    Or at least I'll start a club. Good work to all who have put effort into getting the college circuit going, you deserve a pat on the back!

    Nope...

    You don't need to be recognized by your school. (It's helpful if you are because recognized clubs tend to get money, but the NCPA doesn't care either way.) Just need to bring ID's and schedules/transcripts so we know you're all going to college. (Or high school, as the case may be.)

    Heh....

    Number one for now... Going 2-3 at the NEIC was certainly impressive, but with Naitonals counting double in the rankings, it'll mostly come down to how teams perform against each other in April 27th.

    Are you guys going to stick around for the 10-man on Sunday?

    Well...

    Which school do you go to? If you don't have a club, start one - it's usually pretty easy to do, just do it the same as you'd start any other club at your school. Some schools will give you money out of their student activities funds.

    If you're within driving distance, the tournament itself is cheaper than a day of recball, and flying into Chicago is pretty inexpensive as well if you can't drive.

    Element5, did you play with Drexel at the tourny at west point in the fall? I remember seeing them there, I was with RPI.

    Rensselaer Polytech will be at the NEIC tourny at west point this spring. I dont know if we'll be able to make it to the national championships though. Hopefully we can. It would be really sweet if AGD could make it. Especially if they could come to the tourny at west point. Amy Low was there last time I remember.

    Well....

    Regional tournaments are generally run by conferences - MICT, NEIC, GPIC, SACC.... there isn't a conference out west yet. There's been some discussion about something in the Las Vegas area, but if you look at the list of college clus, the density of clubs there isn't enough to suport an event... yet.

    That's not to say we wouldn't be game for running one - where are you located and what college do you go to If we can get 4 colleges who will send teams, we'll definitely do events - just havn't seen that yet on the west coast.

    Let me know if you want to put something together. We'd definitely like to see events out there if there's interest.

    Well...

    I don't know how many teams are going to be there for the 10-man, so it culd be something we just do for an hour or two just to see if we want to do it again.

    I am from the Nortshore of Illinois, I go to Stevenson. Our school has made it perfectly clear they will not support or endorse any support of paintball organization. You can count on a team from me.

    Cool...

    Please head over to www.register.college-paintball.com and register for the tournament as soon as you get a chance. Also list your team at www.hslist.college-paintball.com - that lets us keep track of where teams are and send out information and put together events. What is your home field? Do you know of any other people from high schools in your area who would like to form HS teams?

    One thing we're really trying to do is get regular local level high school leagues going. Basically the Nationals only closer and more often. (I.e. cheap fun and friendly). LMK if oyu'd be up for organizing something like this. Looks good on a resume/college application.
