I really like how Mike talks to young players like they are adults and encourages them in the sport. He definitely preaches work ethic and personal responsibility. He expects them to grow up. Mike's videos are more for young players than parents.
You are nearly alone in the parent niche, and more power and success to you and your videos.
ideally he should be recommending parents to search for local forums. it'll be the best picture for their local scene attitude, as opposed to wack jobs from these big forums that they'll never meet in person giving them the wrong impression about their local group.

Thank for the feedback. This is EXACTLY why I posted this here. I think the long term goal is for me ... or another parent...to make the same videos. Its more power if it comes from a parent.

I do have a month of no paintball now.....waaaaaaa....because my local field is closed. So I will do this.

If any of you know of better videos let me know. It will save me a ...ton of time.

I like this idea. But how many local areas have active forums? I would think most parents can't find one.

that's true, i guess you have to start with local sections of big forums so it's unavoidable.

making your own vids is also a good call. luckily frozen paint is easy enough to make and film.

I was being a bit facetious in my original post. However, I think the description should read more like:

Quote:
Bounce: When a paintball hits a player but does not break. When playing on most fields, a bounce does not count as an elimination. These tend to hurt a little more as the energy of the paintball is absorbed by the player since none of it is expelled by the splattering of the ball. However, most players don't mind as it means they get to stay in the game.
Be truthful, but put a positive spin on it.

awesome work, the only comment I have is about the dictionary page.

you have definitions for both barrel condoms and barrel plugs. It would be helpful for a parent to know that barrel plugs aren't a safe alternative to a barrel condom and most (if not all) fields don't accept them as a BBD anymore. Also...you may want to refer to it as a BAG rather than a CONDOM, society tends to not like that word.
