Does paintball have an age requirement?
Yes, paintball has age requirements.
What is the minimum age?
Most paintball facilities require that the minimum age of all players be 10 years old on the date of play. Often times, the age requirement has to do with insurance coverage. If you have players who are not quite 10 years old, there are other alternatives for younger players that offer the same thrill as a game of paintball.
*Participants under the age of 18 years will need a parent/guardian to sign their waiver.

What is low impact paintball?
Low Impact Paintball is a new approach to the sport of paintball that lessens the impact, or “sting”, of a paintball impact by 68%. This is made possible by using smaller equipment designed to shoot smaller paintballs at lower velocities, resulting in much softer impact. Low Impact Paintball delivers the same exciting experience of paintball, and is the ideal way to play for corporate outings, new players, and kids, alike. Enjoy the fun sport of paintball with no fear of being hit.
Benefits of Low Impact Paintball:
- Light weight equipment and easy to use.
- Loader holds more paintballs than standard .68 caliber loader.
- 68% less impact force than traditional paintball.
- Paintballs are engineered to break better to reduce the sting of impact.

What is JT Splatmaster?
JT SplatMaster is a sporting goods product that shoots a specially manufactured paintball (called Ammo), which is 100% biodegradable, non-toxic, and easily washes away with water. JT SplatMasters are spring-loaded and shoot at a velocity of 110-140 feet per second. At this low speed, you can see the paintball in the air before you see the satisfaction of your Splat.
JT SplatMaster products are engineered so that kids (and adults!) aged 6+ can easily cock, load, and fire. After learning the basics of safety, new “Splat Masters” should begin by shooting targets, and then advance to obstacle course activities. Advanced JT Splat Masters will graduate to player versus player competition. The gelatin shell of JT SplatMaster Ammo is designed to break easily on impact, without causing pain. You will feel impact, but it doesn’t “hurt” – some say it feels like a minor rubber band snap.
JT SplatMaster is active play for the entire family. Safe, Fun, Accurate. Get in the Game!
