IMO: it's not age, it's maturity.
You can have an immature 9 year old playing who shoots people when there walking of the field and when they are waiting for a match he talks smack...
And you can have a 9 year old who plays responsibly, helps out others, follow rules and dosent talk smack.

My insurance will go as low as 10, but for walk on days I only allow 12 and above, but I speak to the parents.
The big thing I find is that kids of the same age group really have no issues,but if one of those kids is hit with a paintball from a 16 year old kid it can freak them out(they get a little over whelmed).
It's the funniest thing to watch when you have 30 10 year old kids playing on the field, little mini players everywhere, bunkers I can hardly hind behind, and there on their toes to shoot over it.

Pump Player since 96`
My father started playing in late '95 thanks to coworkers, and his stories interested my. So he told me for my 10th birthday (June '96) he would take me if I could take the pain of being shot from across the yard.
First few games I was LOST had no idea what I was doing and thus cowered behind first bunker I found. Older players took me under their wings and showed me the ropes. 5th game of the day I shot out my first guy and fell in love with the sport ever since.
So yea I'd say 10-11 is a good age to introduce a child to the sport.

My field will only allow 10 and up to play there.The guy who owns the field has been playimg for about 20 years and still joins in on games about every day to help out the younger players who have never played.They really dont care how old you are unless you LOOK like you are under about eight.
