When Should I show up?
During your day of paintball, you may be exposed to varying terrain, elements, and weather conditions. As such, we recommend that you dress appropriately. Long pants and a long sleeved shirt are generally a good idea. The less you have exposed, the less chance of a paintball breaking on your skin. Also, comfortable shoes with hard soles are recommended. You will be moving through the woods, so bring footwear that you might use for a hiking activity. Football cleats (plastic) are also worn by some. Just keep in mind that you may be stepping on brush and rocks. Keep in mind, even if it is hot, you probably still want to wear long pants and a long sleeved shirt.
Some players choose to wear camouflage. While this is not required, some feel camo gives them an added advantage. Don't worry if you do not have camo clothing. For recreation play, it doesn't really matter that much. If you wish, we have camo jerseys for rent and camo coveralls for sale.
You may also want to bring a change of clothes to the field to wear on your car ride back home. You can get dirty moving around in the woods. Why not keep it out of your car.
