FIELD SAFETY

Paintball is a sport fueled by excitement and adrenaline; proper attention to safety can also make it safe and family-friendly.  At Judgement Day, the safety of our guests, staff and spectators is our top priority.


Preparing for Play:

Proper field attire will enhance your safety, comfort and enjoyment of the game. We recommend the following attire during play:

  • Long sleeves & long pants
  • Dark or camouflage clothing
  • Shoes or boots you can run in
  • Gloves
  • Bandana (for neck protection)
  • A baseball cap to protect the top and back of your head
  • We would also suggest that you wear the same personal protection that you would wear during gym class(cups ect)
  • A positive attitude

Keep in mind that while vegetable-based paintballs are washable, some discoloration may remain on light-coloured clothing. Dirt and grass are factors on our outdoor field, so come prepared to have fun and get dirty! A change of clothes/shoes and a towel to clean up before the ride home is also a great idea.

Please pack non-alcoholic beverages and snacks as we do not have a snack bar on site at this time. Judgement Day Paintball is a family-friendly facility. Sportsmanlike behaviour is encouraged at all times and alcohol is not permitted.


Paintball-approved eye protection is essential:

  • Never remove your mask/goggles in the field, in elimination zones or at any time during play
  • Never fire your marker when you (or someone nearby) is not wearing proper paintball-approved eye protection


Using a Paintball Marker:

  • Do not handle a paintball marker while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Never shoot at a person with intent to harm them; never shoot at animals
  • On the field, try to minimize the amount of time you spend out in the open. Obstacles can provide cover should you need a break or the chance to reload
  • Paintball velocities fluctuate; chronograph your marker several times throughout the day
  • When you are eliminated, raise your hands, call "OUT" as loud as you can and walk off the field
  • Do not remove your goggles until you are back in the safe zone
  • Keep your marker safety switch in the "safe" position at all times when not in play
  • If your marker has a power feed, keep it in the "off" position when not in play
  • In designated safe zones, ALWAYS cover the barrel of your marker with an approved barrel sleeve (barrel plugs are not permitted)
  • Remove all power sources prior to disassembling your paintball marker
  • In many cases, markers can fire even after the pressure cylinder (HPA or C02) has been removed. Always wear goggles when working on your marker.
  • Do not attempt to alter pressure cylinders or valves
  • Discharge and unload your marker prior to storage and transportation
  • Only pressurize your marker when you are ready to use it
  • Do not shoot anything from your marker other than water-soluble paintballs
  • Paintball paint can discolour or damage finished surfaces. Do not shoot cars, homes or items with finished surfaces
