How do you go about starting a high school paintball team? Can you be sponsored by the school administration and wear the school colors/mascot on jerseys? Do you ask the "principal" to start on and to use the school name, can the school offer money or paint for practice?

-thanks

I wouldnt bother, the school wont give you anything other then the ability to use their logo on the jerseys you would make and pay for.

Plus your club would be blamed if the school gets shot up.

Focus on a making a "club" before a team. Speedball is expensive and most kids and even college students dont have the coin for that so focus on getting a bunch of kids out there playing thats what we are doing at USC. Focusing on the more general fun and friend aspect of paintball will draw more people and still maintain or find that core group of players who want to form a speedball team! Hope this helps also find a teacher you like who is interested they will be a huge asset in convincing the other adults your not out of your mind lol

Good luck young padawan you have quite a journey ahead of you...
