Paintball Safety Rules

Simple steps to make your game of paintball fun and safe: 


1. Wear your mask at all times

  • When a game is being played, your paintball mask must be worn at all times
  • Do not remove your mask in the dead zone if the dead zone is within range of the field
  • Keep masks on until barrel plugs or socks have been placed back on all loaded guns
  • There are no exceptions to this rule
  • Remember that most severe paintball injuries occur because someone removed their mask at an inappropriate time
  • DO NOT REMOVE YOUR MASK WHILE A GAME IS STILL BEING PLAYED!


2. Do Not Drink and Play

  • You are not permitted on the playing field if you are under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, or prescription medicine
  • You can only play if you are fully coherent


3. No Blind Firing

  • Do not fire if you can't see what you are firing at; i.e. do not stick your gun out and fire without looking
  • Blind firing can lead to accidentally shooting players who are leaving the field, referees, or other things/people you shouldn't shoot.


4. Surrenders

  • Offer surrender to any opposing player within twenty feet. Close-range shots are considerably more painful than shots from a distance
  • Accept surrender if another player has come within twenty feet and has a shot on you


5. Shoot Less Than 285 FPS

  • All paintball velocities will be under 285 (and generally under 280) feet per second (FPS)
  • We time and monitor gun speeds with a paintball chronograph
  • Automatic modes are not allowed. A paintball that travels at 280 FPS can cause small bruises, while a paintball that travels faster can cause significantly more damage including severe welts and broken skin


6. Always Use Your Barrel Plug or Sock

  • Whenever you are in an area when masks are not being worn, all guns should be pointed down and blocked with a barrel plug or barrel sock
  • Unless everyone has a mask on, do not take out your barrel plugs
  • Players should keep the safety on their guns engaged until they are ready to fire
  • Always keep the gun pointed away and down from unprotected players, including yourself


7. Common Sense Reminders

  • Don't shoot anyone’s private property
  • Don't shoot out of a moving vehicle
  • Don't look down the barrel of a loaded gun
  • Keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire
  • Don't shoot yourself


8. Clothing

  • Wear long pants and long sleeves in several layers to provide extra padding
  • Knee pads and elbow pads can be helpful while kneeling or shooting prone
  • Wear a baseball cap backwards to protect the back of your head
  • Wear cleats or tennis shoes
  • We advise wearing clothing you don't mind getting dirty but our paint does wash out


All events are field paint only | minimum age is 8 years old


Only NPPL approved safety equipment is permitted


We reserve the right to ban and/or expel any player not following the safety rules

Paintball FAQ's

Is Paintball Safe?
Paintball is very safe as long as you follow the rules and use common sense as with any sport. Minor injuries can occur such as strains and sprains that are associated with all action sports. Paintballs can also leave minor bruises. Severe injuries can result when players are not following the rules such as removing their mask, etc.


Is Paintball Fun?
Paintball is a fun sport that just about anybody can play and enjoy. It's an exciting combination of action, strategy, and adrenaline with small projectiles hurling through the air at up up to 200 miles per hour. It comes in many forms and variations and can be played and enjoyed by anyone.


Will paintballs stain my clothing?
As a general rule, paintballs will not stain clothing or fabrics; however certain brands of paintballs can stain certain light-colored fabrics, depending on the dye used. Best tip is to play in darker colored clothing to avoid staining your new white or yellow shirt.


What Gear do I need to play Paintball?
There are four basic pieces of paintball gear that you need to play paintball:
Mask | worn at all times to protect your face and prevent serious injury
Hopper | holds your paintballs and feeds them into your gun/marker
Tank | holds stored air which pushes the ball down the barrel. CO2 or compressed air tank
Paintball gun/marker | individual choice, shoots paintballs at your opponents
Paintballs | available in all different colors and prices, more expensive paint typically performs better.


How many people do we need to play Paintball?
You can play by yourself, in a group, or form a team. You will have a good time no matter how many are playing at one time.


Can I play Paintball?
If you like competition, action, strategy and skill, and lots of movement, paintball is for you. You must be 10 years old to play by yourself or 8 if accompanied by an adult on the playing field.
