This year, each player will receive a personalized ID card with your name, your school’s name, and logos! Accordingly, all players are REQUIRED to submit a profile photo for approval ahead of the event. Ensure that each player on your team follows the directions listed on the Nationals website: http://ncpapaintball.com/nationals/pricing.

Entry Fee Waivers

As in past years, Class AA teams earn a $100 entry waiver by having their team and player profiles *completely* filled out, plus an additional waiver for having matching team jerseys meeting NCPA jersey requirements and another for having an article about the team or league published in your school newspaper.

Class AA Finals on the Webcast!

You’ve asked for it, and we’re finally able to deliver – Class AA will have their Finals matches (championship and consolation) shown LIVE on our FREE webcast!

Player Eligibility Waiver Requests

With limited exceptions, all students must be full-time students at the same school at the time of the tournament to be eligible to compete. A player who is not a full time student at the time of the tournament who wishes to compete and meets one of the limited exception requirements MUST RECEIVE ADVANCE WRITTEN APPROVAL from the NCPA prior to competing. The deadline for applying for such an eligibility waiver is April 4.
TEAMS COMPETING WITH INELIGIBLE PLAYERS WILL BE DISQUALIFIED AND MAY FACE FURTHER SANCTIONS FROM THE LEAGUE AND/OR YOUR SCHOOL.

If you have any question regarding player eligibility, or if you need to apply for an eligibility waiver, please visit our Player Eligibility Information Page.

Player Eligibility Reminder

A friendly reminder to all players and teams that, in order to play a college event, you must be a full-time, enrolled, degree seeking student at your university, or have a received an eligibility waiver from the NCPA President or CEO. Additionally, each team must only consist of players attending the same university (satellite campuses and statewide systems count as separate schools). Each player, as well as your team captain and president, should verify with each player that they meet the eligibility requirements as set forward in our rules.
