Hope everyone is getting out and playing plenty of paintball this summer! We are working hard getting ready for next season and just wanted to ask teams to make sure your club contact information is current. If it is not, please have the club president update that information on your club’s APPA profile or email firstname.lastname@example.org with it! We don’t want any team to miss out on the informational emails we will be sending out. Thank you!

The Final match will air on CBS Sports Network on May 16th at Noon EST.
We have cobbled together a backup backup solution to our webcast technical difficulties, and the webcast is now live. We are also uploading matches from earlier in the day to YouTube. The current solution is not ideal and you may experience slow frame rates but we are working on a better solution for tomorrow. We appreciate everyone’s patience.
Due to unforeseen technical issues, we will be unable to live stream the webcast on Friday, April 17th. We will, as quickly as possible, be uploading the matches and making them available on YouTube.
We appreciate your patience and understanding while we work to resolve our technical issues.
The NCPA will be running a free, live webcast of the showcase field all weekend, with your hosts Matty Marshall, Todd Martinez and Kevin “Catfish” Arcilla, along with sideline reporting from Lauren Kelly of Paintball Access fame.

The NCPA is holding elections for the Board of Directors for the 2015-2016 school year. Board member responsibilities include attending board meetings (held online), keeping in touch with schools in your region and bringing concerns to the attention of the Board and NCPA officers, and appointing officers (President, Treasurer, Secretary).
There are seven total seats on the NCPA Board of Directors; two At-Large seats plus five seats representing a particular region:
Midwest – Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, West Virginia, Wisconsin
North – Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming
Northeast – Delaware, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont
Southeast – Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia
West – Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah and Washington
Each school may vote for one candidate representing their region and for one At-Large candidate. If you are interested in running for one of these positions, you may apply for a position on the ballot by sending an email including your name, school, year in school, and your “stump speech” to email@example.com. Candidates must be full-time students for the duration of the 2015-2016 academic school year.
Candidate applications will be accepted through Friday, April 10. Elections will run from Saturday, April 11th through Sunday, April 19th.
Instructions for voting:
Voting is done through the NCPA College Club List. Each member school should visit the NCPA College Club List . From here, find your school’s state in the upper list, then click on it. This will take you to a list of schools in your state; click on your school. Next, click on the ‘Edit Club Information’ link, and log in with your APPA login information. If you cannot find your team’s information, please e-mail us and we will get it for you.
Once logged in, visit the ‘NCPA Voting’ tab. You will be shown the list of current nominees; select your school’s vote and click ‘Submit Club Vote’. If no options are displayed to vote for, that means there are currently no people running for board members for your region. You should consider running!
With one event left to go for each region, the season is drawing to a close, and the 2015 National Championships is upon us!
In Class AA, the Texas A&M Aggies are at the top of the heap, having won an impressive 4 out of 4 events this season! Nipping at their heels are the Liberty University Flames, Kennesaw State Owls, University of Texas Longhorns, and Saginaw Valley State University Cardinals. It’s going to be a very close race going into Nationals to see who will be the 2015 Class AA Season Champions. Will Liberty be able to successfully defend their 2014 title? We can’t wait to see!
