Players Code Of Conduct

Team Members & Reserves will read and follow the rules -

staying well with in their boundaries


1: I understand that paintball is a game of honor, and I will play it that way.

2: When I shoot an opponent , I will immediately cease firing and advancing, and give the player a moment to call it. If the gentleman continues to play on I will not lower my standards - I will simply continue to press my attack.

3: Once I am eliminated, I will clearly call my self out, hold my hand/gun up, 
signal I am out  and place a barrel cover on my gun, hold it up as i exit the field or return to the insertion point. During this time, I will not communicate to active team members on the field.

4: I will not wipe paint or continue playing on once I am hit. 

5: I will not use eliminated players or refs as physical cover. 

6: Under no circumstances will I intentionally shoot as to injure a opponent.

7: When I encounter a young, elderly or prospect player, I will be patient with that player and inspire them by my example. I will extend that player additional courtesy. I will encourage new players to try the game of paintball and will treat them with respect

8: In person, and online, I will avoid condescending remarks, and actions that could possibly be construed as unsportsmanlike. If a situation degenerates into unsportsmanlike conduct, I will remove myself or otherwise avoid the situation. Winning and losing are not excuses for poor sportsmanship. Be a gracious winner and a good loser. How you play and handle yourself are far more important than the outcome.

9: I will not drink alcohol or use illegal drugs while playing the game as these can alter my judgment and physical abilities. Also, avoid using profane language in all instances.

10: At a field paint only event, I will only shoot field paint.

11: I will not intentionally turn up the velocity of my marker while playing. I will regularly chronograph my marker at every practical opportunity. 


12: I will treat my marker as if it were loaded at all times. Never aiming my marker at any unmasked player or unmasked spectator - loaded, or unloaded.
