not a lot. Typically, it will hurt for a little bit, but it will leave a cool bruise.

Is paintball safe?• Yes! Paintball is actually safer

than bowling! Paintball is a safe and fun sport, but only if you follow the safety rules. People only get hurt if someone is careless.

Safety First, Safety Last, Safety Always

The rules of paintball change from place to place but one rule is always the same: Safety First.

There are two things you need to do to stay safe:

1. Wear your paintball mask at all times when playing. ***Under NO circumstances are you to take your mask off while playing.***

2. Unless you are playing on the field keep the barrel of the Marker/gun covered.***Mask On, Barrel clear.******Mask Off, Barrel covered.***

What should I bring? Two Layers of loose fitting

comfortable clothes, sensible shoes for running (not sandals, flip flops, or high heels)

Extra money for paintballs (you don’t want to run out)

A second set of clothes to ride home in. No one wants to ride home in sweaty, paint-stained clothes.

Rules Follow all rules.

Wear your mask at all times on the field.

After someone has been shot and is holding his/her marker in the air, you MUST STOP SHOOTING that person. If you cannot follow this rule, you will not be allowed to continue playing.
