I did a similar thing a while back. Some of mine were the athletic aspect, teamwork and the adrenaline rush . Now of course there are many reasons and depending on the teacher you could use war scenario for woodsball or the thrill of shooting someone in speedball. Of course you have to think about what made you come out and try it and use that as ideas

Try to avoid that paintball is "pretend war". I don't know your teacher, but every older person i've tried to explain paintball to they've almost always shunned it off as a "war game". Even though that's part of the truth, paintball is as we know, far more than that. I'm not saying you should lie, just be aware of what they might think of scenerio games and woodsball.

Because people who play paintball regularly are actually really cool people. The game is just a bonus, but you get to meet a lot of chill individuals, it's not until money and bragging rights are on the line when all the hot heads arrive.

Just remember about people in this sport. No one Cares about you... In a good way :wub:

Ok tanks, that all helps a lot! I have decided to write the first part about undermining the cons (cost, pain) the second about physical aspect and adrenaline. And the third about teamwork and people you meet. Thanks again.

Promotes sociability, exercise, teamwork, problem solving skills, builds hand-eye coordination, taking apart markers builds dexterity and mechanical skills, supports small businesses, teaches WHERE and WHEN to shoot, not just to shoot people out of chaos. Builds character as far as determination and people skills. Helps people understand the importance of personal protective equipment and the respect for its uses.

Supports the doing of odd jobs like mowing lawns, dog care, and junk removal people would rather pay someone else to do to earn money for gear and paint. Helps build the community. Even going as far as the fields themselves give kids a place to go to for fun to keep them out of trouble. This last one is a lot for smaller towns like where I come from with massive drug problems, we built a skate park and a small rec center and watched drug related activities drop tremendously.

I can elaborate on anything listed when I get to a computer, phones arent really great for novels.

Here is the main appeal to paintball. Anyone can play. Your mom, your dad, hell even grandpa could play paintball! Sure you can go out and throw a football or shoot baskets with your old man but paintball will pit you against a multitude of opponents in different settings and game types every time! This is one of the only universally appealing and athletically open sports in the world anyone can enjoy it!

you want to focus on the activity, not the competitive side

focus on paintball being a sport where grandparents can play with their grandchildren, where moms and dads can play with their kids, where brothers and sisters can play side by side.

Tell them a recent paintball game by Greg Hastings is the ONLY "shooting game" with a G rating, and is sold in Scholastic Magazines, because paintball is not a violent sport

Explain them that the fields take great care in providing safe grounds to play, where the grounds are carefully inspected for safe play, everyone uses a certified safety mask, and all markers are chronographed to be uder the sport-mandated velocity limit

Explain that paintball is played in many countries worldwide, and that at the competitive level, teams from all countries, fly to other countries, to compete and play in forgiegn tournaments

Show them the college paintball teams, where colleges have began accepting and providing funding for college paintball clubs


You can put together one hell of a slideshow if you think about the entire sport from top to bottom

Hahahaha I think that is the best answer. Guy asks: "Why do you play Paintball?"
kid says: "I like to take my anger out on everyone in Speedball and bunker them just for the heck of it!"

This is kind of ironic sense I was just about to make a topic asking about a paper I need done. The only difference is mine is a informative speech so I was thinking of starting with how it was made then talking about the the current things, then finishing it off with where paintball is heading in the future (The positive not the negative)
