The pulse pounding, adrenaline pumping excitement of paintball is a great team building activity. Team members plan strategy and design plays to gain the winning edge. As action unfolds, communication among teammates is critical. The Speedball field is a team event, pitting 2 teams against each other in a fast paced capture the flag style game. The Woodsball field is for players that like a slower paced game. Teams start at opposite ends of a large wooded area and must move downfield quietly and tactfully while communicating with hand signals so as not to give their positions away. Finally, there is the accurate shooter course, an individual speed and aim competition. Too much fun!
