Lacrosse



ID also say lacrosse because when I play I am always running never standing still. Lacrosse requires endurance and the agility to dodge incoming checks.

A lot of you are probably going to disagree with me but,
tennis has really helped me alot in paintball.
It has helped my speed and endurance.

MY SETUP:
PM8 Dust black fade to red
Pinokio Hopper

I would argue hockey is the best. The sheer amount of endurance and leg strength (and other strength) would be great for paintball. Granted, you'd have to play very regularly.



AMEN. i am a hockey player and a paintball player and they are the two best sports in the entire world. they are both REAL fucking fast and require ALOT of strength and endurance

Hockey, soccer, and basketball take much more endurance than paintball. If you play high-school soccer (or have the endurance of a soccer player/hockey player), you will find paintball much less strenuous.


I couldn't agree more. I am a defensive soccer player and my endurance is high. Breaking a sweat in soccer takes 5 to 10 minutes. Breaking a sweat in paintball takes two or three, 20 to 30 minute games or a shit load of speed ball games. This is when it is about 60 to 70 degrees out side.

I would say it is a mixture of sports. Soccer for endurance and team work, track for sprints(getting to a bunker), football for the upper body and the impacts on the ground.

I don't believe this one has been thrown out there before.
But real ultimate Frisbee not just throwing the disc.
Requires the quickness of football, but also you have to be able to make quick important decisions fast.
Also you practice slides a lot so you can get in there quick and get the disc. I think this is great compliment to paintball.
Edit: Also you have to communicate a lot which helps build team SKILLZ?!

yeah
also the guy who said dodgeball, i agree with that to
a way to practice would be have your team set up one mini bunker for someone and have the rest of the team or all but one throw balls at you while you dodge use cover and fight back
i'mma try dat

Basketball would be great for woodsball as it teaches you to keep your head up. Like when you do crossovers and behind the back things it's a must to keep your head up.
