A full waiver, with a
guardian signature if under 18, must be signed to play.
NO ALCOHOL or illegal drugs allowed.
No Profanity is allowed (on the field or in the staging area).
All players must remain within boundaries to remain in play. If a
player goes out of
bounds, they will be eliminated from the game.
Barriers and obstacles are not to be moved or modified in any way.
If for any reason your gun is not working and you are not sure of the
problem alert a
referee and they will assist you.
Do not pick up paintballs off the ground, they ruin the guns. Do not
over fill your ammo loader.
Do not lay rental equipment on the ground.
Remember it is only a game - keep your sense of humor, play fair, have
fun. If someone is doing something they shouldn't, politely make sure
they know to not do it again, and go on with the next game. If they
continue, report it to the staff so they can check into it.
A player is eliminated when a
paintball breaks and leaves a paint mark at least a quarter size or larger
anywhere on the player.
There is no elimination if the
paintball does not break upon impact.
If the paintball splatters after hitting a tree or
other object, the player is not eliminated.
If a paintball hits and breaks
anywhere on a gun, hopper or any other piece of equipment on a player, that
player is out.
When a player has been hit in a
location that he cannot see, he may call for a paint check. The player must
call "PAINTCHECK ME" and continue to play. A judge will come over to check the
player for a hit, do not stop playing. If the judge feels it necessary to move
the player to check him, he will call the player neutral by shouting out "THIS
PLAYER IS NEUTRAL", and will place a hand on the player. If you see a judge
with his hand on a player, that player is neutral. Neutral players may not be
fired upon, and they may not fire. Neutral players may not move, and no player
may move to improve their position on this player. Once the paint check has been
resolved the judge will call the player in or out, and the game will resume.
A player may call a paint check
on another player if he is reasonably sure the player has been hit and marked.
To do this the player calling the paint check must say "PAINTCHECK" FOLLOWED BY
THE LOCATION AND IF POSSIBLE THE DESCRIPTION OF THE PLAYER TO BE CHECKED. (i.e.
"paint check the guy in the black sweatshirt behind the blue barrel to my
right"). The more exact the location and description are given, the faster your
paint check will be executed. Judges will not respond to a player simply
calling "Paint check". If paint checks are called excessively or needlessly the
judge may eliminate the player calling the checks. When calling a paint check
on another player you may not move on that player, but you should continue to
fire. You should encourage players who you believe you have eliminated to check
themselves by calling out "CHECK YOURSELF PLEASE". Again, be as specific as
possible by telling the player exactly where to check. When a player checks
himself, you must stop firing at him.
If you shoot a player, and he is
hit, QUIT SHOOTING!!!! Excessive Shooting will cause you to be ejected
from the game. Be careful not to shoot players that are "out" and are
leaving the field.
Three ball break rule - Shooting
and hitting a player where three or more balls break on a player is prohibited.
The first offense will result in a verbal warning. A second offense will
result in sitting out two games. Any additional offenses will result in
If you a caught rubbing off
paint while in the game to avoid calling yourself "out", you will not be allowed
to play. Cheaters will not be tolerated.
CALLING YOURSELF OUT ("HITS")
Loudly call "HIT" and raise one
hand above your head, place your barrel cover on the barrel of the marker.
Once you call "HIT", you must
exit the game at the designated exit point (to be specified by the referee prior
to game start).
Players must quickly exit the
field, no talking to active players Dead Players can not talk to Live Players Dead men don't talk! Once you are out you
cannot say anything but "I'm hit, I'm out!" You cannot gesture or otherwise
convey any information to any other player.
Imitating a "HIT" player will
not be tolerated.
The referees have the right to go anywhere on the
playing field, all players must yield to the referees.
All decisions made by the referee are final. A player
may be ejected from the field for arguing or disagreeing with the referee. If a
dispute does occur between a player and a referee, it should be brought off the
field and taken to the head referee.
If an attacking player is within 15 feet of another
player, that player may demand a "surrender."
If the defending player accepts the "surrender",
he/she will leave the field as a "hit" player.
If the defending player does not accept the
"surrender", he/she has the right to return fire.
Whenever you get a player in a
hopeless situation, (i.e.; you are 20 ft or less from a player who has no idea
you are there), you should offer the player a chance to surrender rather than
shoot at close range. Call out "SURRENDER". If he does not respond in a
non-aggressive manner fast enough for you, you may shoot. Absolutely No head
shots or multiple shooting will be tolerated. To surrender, a player may
call "OUT", "HIT", "I SURRENDER", "I GIVE", "UNCLE", or any other statement that
will convey a positive response. Players not making any response, or those who
try to bluff will probably be shot.
The "Surrender" option is to
reduce the number of injuries experienced from being hit at close range. It is
strictly an option. Players are highly encouraged to use it.
