Based on my experience, it's far easier to pay for it and go often when young if you have an older sibling or parents that play. My uncle has been playing since the 80's, so my cousins played all the time with him and had a desent setup. My uncle would happily help pay for new paintball stuff for them and me, and would take them at least once a month, a lot of times more. If your parents havnt played or don't like the idea of it, it makes it very hard. My parents didn't like it, so I never had help after getting my first gear. I would only get to go once every few months with my uncle after saving up money for paint, which was alot of money for me, but he would pay for entry and air fills. Now that I can pay for it, I have fallen in love with paintball again.

Do the crappy, remedial jobs nobody else wants to. It's a crap job with crap pay, but you'll learn a good work ethic that will translate when you're old enough to get a better job.

You can get a job, just not for a major company for example McDonalds, some kids become soccer refs and ref 5 games a weekend for about 1 hour, it pays around $20 a game for an entry level ref, you have $100 over a weekend, buying old/broken Ipods then fixing them and selling them for a profit, mowing lawns, computer tutoring, going around to garage sales buying stuff and selling it for a profit, buying candy/gum/chips, selling it for over retail price. Or you could save up from over 3 years of birthdays, christmas, and any other holiday you get money from, also many kids play video games, sell their old ones, they can make a decent profit on that, or even homework tutoring for like $10 an hour.
