Making a kid's day

Just thought I'd share something that happened Sunday. I was reffing a birthday party and there was this one girl who couldn't have been older than 8. She got out on the field and wasn't able to get anyone out playing with the group. I could see she was having a blast but was also getting kind of discouraged, so I talked to the owner of the field and asked it it would be ok if I went out and played a 1on1 with her. He said yes after I told him my plan. So I grabbed a rental and what she didn't know, is that I had no paint, just air. So we went out and when the game started, we started shooting, I was doing silly little things like leaving my legs, arms and head out, and standing out in the open. Well, she got me and I wish I had a picture of the smile on her face after we came of the field. She was telling everyone "I GOT HIM! I GOT HIM!" She came over to me and said "there's paint on my mask, one of the paintballs you shot at me sprayed onto it" I just smiled and told her, I'll have to get some more practice before I play her again.

That's awesome, good job. My son was 8 his first time out and my buddies left a lot of their bodies hanging out from bunkers until he got all of them eventually. He was hooked and now turning 13 still loves playing with us. You got a kid hooked but more importantly made her day. Way to go.

Good job, man. That's a great way to promote the sport and to make a positive impact on a young one.

Good job, buddy. We did something similar a while back against a birthday group. We shot at bunkers and made a lot of noise; but we made sure to not actually hit them. The way some of that paint was curving that day, I'm almost surprised we didn't hit them by accident. The look on that kid's face as I gave him a fist bump when walking off the field was priceless. They all got to go home that day talking about how they got to play and beat the "pros". Their parents appreciated it about as much as the kids did too.

Her aunt brought her. But no, I don't think my girlfriend or the aunt's husband would have been too happy with that lol

I love stories like this. Making sure the renters and the kids have a good time is one way we can all get people coming back to the field.
