No, it isn't.


Age isn't a factor, it's maturity.


In this case, the kid was too IMATURE to be playing.

I've seen a pair of 5 year old twins playing at my field with their dad. They were pretty good for their age.

I saw a 5 yr old play, and he was ok for his age. He learned to keep people down and I think he managed to hit at least one person since I first saw him.

I alos taught a 4 yr old to shoot one.

I started at 14. I'm 16 now.

Some kids once who must have been 6 or 7. They wouldn't call themselves out and would not only keep playing, but shoot at people who were out. But if we shot at them after they failed to call out, they whined and cried.
Is God real? You'll find out when you die.

Okay, I don't have a clever signature zinger. So sue me.

If we have younger and younger players soon we'll have a NPPL Diaper 7 Tournament.


Coming in May 2005!

Major factor in maturity is age, especially in young children. Children tend to have a very short attention span, which can be dangerous. They also don't know, don't remember, or disregard what might be a dangerous situation (i.e. jumping off tall objects, playing near deep water, touching a hot stove)

Another important thing about young children is that they tend to lack physical strength and dexterity to be able to perform what we think of as normal tasks.

Point is, if you can't tie your shoe, you shouldn't be on a paintball field.

Belt just got so pwned.

So just because hes 6 doesn't mean he can't play paintball. To me someone as little as 5 can play as long as they know how to hold and shoot a paintball gun.
