My name is Mike Peverill. I'm here at Pev's Paintball Park in Aldie, Virginia. I've been playing paintball nearly 30 years.

The NPPL is a national professional paintball league, and it's the governing body that sanctions, across the United States. It's been around the longest of all the leagues, nearly 20 years, and basically all the big pro teams and pro players have played in the league, amateur team, semi-pro, novice, all the way down to beginners.

And when you're ready to play in the National Professional Paintball League, you know, basically you just have to have a team to compete with and enter into league. And if you were to go to, and basically you'll see this registration information and sign up based on your criteria for division. It really depends on your experience and level of play.

If you're a beginner, if it's your first time, you're automatically going to choose beginner, which is the beginner series. And register, putting your information, you'll get your NPPL ID card, and set up and you're ready to go. Each member of your team has to do that. Basically it will tell you where all the events you can compete at, in the United States, and then also the regional events. NPPL also has regional tournaments, which are, you get points towards the national circuit, but you can go and just compete in the regional events for prizes as well. Basically, do the baby steps. You start working your way there, getting some tournaments under your belt and working your way up to the next level.
