Announcing 2015 National Championships!

The 2015 NCPA National Championships, featuring both college and high school divisions, will return to Central Florida Paintball on April 17-19, 2015.

As we have done in the past, a FREE, live webcast will broadcast Class A matches Friday, Saturday, and the Semi-finals matches on Sunday. Each Class A team will be webcast for at least one match.

Base entry fees will remain the same as the past 5 seasons:
Class A: $1900 – free for Class A conference teams!
Class AA: $600, after 3 earned $100 entry waivers
High School: $300, including 2 cases paint plus a half case per playoff round played.

NCPA will not be making any mid-season rule changes. As usual, NCPA will evaluate whether any potential tweaks to game rules will enhance the competitive environment for our teams during the summer off-season.

While we are anxiously awaiting Nationals, we thought you might enjoy some previously unreleased action from the 2014 National Championships – Semifinals action between the University of Central Florida Knights and the Florida Atlantic University Owls!

From all of the NCPA volunteers, we wish everyone a Happy Holidays, and we can’t wait to see all of you next semester and at the National Championships!
