GEAR:
Bright colored jersey or Designated Ref Jersey*
Paintball pants*
Ref Shield or Towel
Water Bottle or Hydration Pack*
Swabs and Squeegees*
Game Timer*
Hand-Chrony
Whistle
Mask Spray*
Rags*
Microfiber Cloth
Flags
Barrel Plugs

* indicates the ones you'll probably need the most (note: based on my experience)

How to be a good ref:
Be impartial, don't take sides
Be Agressive (B-E Aggressive!) Don't be afraid to get into the heat
Bring water
Don't let people get away with things, they'll only do it again...
Be friendly, and help when needed...

I can't really think of anything else right now

if you ref a ton, and don't have a pair of speedball pants don't underestimate how comfy they are and also how nice they are. They causes tons of bounces and will allow you to slide. I wouldn't ref without them for any reason.

The information offered here is all great! As a Ref Trainer I can tell you the info you read here should help you a lot.

I will add one thing I haven't read:

"Make the call and let it stand without question"

Always do your best to make the right call, once you make the call...thats it. It's not the NFL with HiDef instant replay, its "make the best call you can make in the moment."

Don't negotiate calls. If a player (or their captain/coach/teammate) tries to "explain to you what happened" to get a call changed and they succeed, others will try and work you for a change on every call and you have lost your position and respect for your calls. "I Called It How I Saw it and the Call Stands" should be on the tip of your tongue and ready for any attempted negotiation. This doesn't mean, that in hindsight with more information than you had at the moment, you will not believe you should have called something differently. This doesn't change the call, it prepares you for making better calls in the future.

Be Safe and spread the joy of Safe Paintballing
Death is just a passage...so bring more paint!!!
