How is High School Paintball played?

The game

To showcase each player’s skills while making play fun and affordable for players of all experience levels, the NCPA HSPL features the Tactical RaceTo-2 format. Tactical RaceTo-2 uses the same rules as the groundbreaking RaceTo format pioneered by Paintball Sports Promotions and adopted by top leagues nationwide, but with a twist. We’ve added a tactical component that rewards pregame strategy and precision performance on the field: Each team starts each point with no more than 600 paintballs. Split them evenly for hopperball, or give more to your back players, the tactical decision is yours!

Rules follow the NCPA Rulebook with the modification of it being 3 man, 3 minutes time limit, and limited paint.

Regional High School Championships Announced!

As Winter changes into Spring, paintball players are going out more and more.
There is still a chance for everyone to participate in the High School Paintball Season!  Get your friends together and start practicing now so your team is prepared for the Regional Championship events and National Championships.

Just like last season, each Regional Championship winner will win a FREE trip to the National Championships on April 20, 2013, including entry, paint, and up to a $1,500 CASH travel reimbursement!

Forming a team is easy!  Any team of three students who attend the same high school is eligible to compete.  Public high schools can also include junior high, private and home schooled students who would otherwise attend that high school.  No official recognition from your school is necessary, just get two other students and play!

Regional Championships will be played in March.

Any High School team may enter a Regional Championship; qualification is NOT necessary.
