Playing paintball is a great activity for kids 9 years of age and older. Here are our top 3 reasons why kids should be playing paintball:
It increases self-confidence and encourages interpersonal skills: Paintball is a team sport that requires players to communicate with one another to accomplish a goal. The fast pace and the excitement of the moment encourages players to improve their leadership skills. Surviving an intense battle is a great boost to one’s self confidence.
It’s a workout without appearing to be a workout: We can all use a bit more exercise in our lives. Today’s children spend a lot of time indoors. Paintball is a full body workout that involves running, jumping and crawling. Games are fast-paced and fueled by adrenaline. The combination of physical exertion and increased heart rate make paintball a great way to exercise mind and body.
It’s a great stress reliever: We all have stress in our lives, even kids. Today’s kids don’t have much time to relax and unwind. Paintball is a constructive way to get rid of stress.
It’s Fun!: Chasing your friends around the paintball field and shooting brightly colored balls of paint at one another is a riot! The laughter, smiles, and the stories afterward are the things a great day with friends is made of.
