2015 Nationals Layout Release Poll | 2016 Board of Directors

2015 National Championships Field Layout Release Date Preference
For 2015, PSP changed their field release schedule so that the Pro field layout is released the day before play, and then used the following event as the layout for the Divisional fields.  This change was well-received by teams and contributed to some exciting play at Dallas, but also prevents us from using the Dallas Pro / Nashville Divisional layout for the 2015 National Champs as we had to order our custom field prior to Dallas.
As such, NCPA will be using a new, unique layout for Nationals.  We can release the layout in advance on March 27, or wait until the event to release it, likely April 15 or 16.
If your team is attending the 2015 National Championship, please visit your team profile on APPA at and indicate your layout release date preference between:
  • Layout released the week of Nationals
  • Layout released Friday, March 27

We will review the votes on Thursday afternoon and announce the results and possibly layout on Friday.  Preferences of paid teams (money received or payment pending) will be given strongest consideration, so make sure you get your National Championship entry paid, or invoice submitted to your school.

2015 – 2016 Board of Directors

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 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!

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!
