Should I Let My Child Play Paintball?

As is the case with any competitive sport, deciding whether to let children play paintball is a very personal decision that should be made with a good deal of thought. Please don’t make a snap or uninformed decision whether or not to allow your child to play, ask some questions and take a minute to think it through.

Each child is different and the decision to allow him/her to play paintball should be based on their specific situation.

First, you should learn a little bit about paintball.  See our page ” About Paintball  ” to find out more. Then you should ask yourself some questions:

  •  Is your child mature enough to understand and follow all safety instructions?
  •  Do they understand that they will get hit, it does sting a little and they could get a bruise?
  •  Do they understand the concepts of good sportsmanship and fair play?

After you answer these questions, ask what you want your child to gain from the experience. Paintball is a great way to get exercise, enjoy the outdoors, develop friendships, learn teamwork and to simply have fun.
