So this is EXACTLY what paintball needs. Paintball culture is extremely sink or swim. You get to the field, you get handed a gun, and you either do well or you dont. The only paintball training there is the basic safety lecture about keeping your mask on and your barrel covered. This is how you get people to stay in the sport.
The part that makes it difficult is that unlike snowboarding, it is a group activity. You need, realistically, a bare minimum of 6 people(students) to have an effective paintball practice session.
I am so pissed I'm moving away.... I would totally start this locally....
