How do I become a Ref?
Posted 25 February 2007 - 04:16 PM
Ive played paintball for a little over 2 years now and and hoping to become at a local feild on the spring
Should i just walk up to the owner and put in a resume or ask them if he is looking for referees?

knowing first aid really looks good to feild owners.
id suggest just asking the feild owner if they need any refs. just volunteer, if they like your performance there likely to hire you and if not you can use that experience as part of a resume to take to another feild saying hey i reffed at feild X and would like to ref here.

That's how I got started, I just showed up without any paintball gear except my mask and when they asked me what I needed I just said; "I'm here to help you out today.". So, he says; "Follow me.".
Thus began my career..........

Me, they needed help reffing a big game. They were taking volunteers. So I volunteered to assist them. And been doing pretty much all our big games at the field since. Taken two certification classes. We do one every six months or so.
Honestly, I am some what tired of reffing. I have only played three times in the past six months... Of course, I save money by reffing!

Somone had put a game on the Game Finder and mentioned a new field nearby and a B-Day party. I showed up at a game at a Military base that another field put on at the Military Facility so Ihad all my stuff in my truck anyway. So my friend and I headed over. We saw the field but the directions lead us past the field and to the guys house, which was just a hop; skip; and a jump away. Shortly after we pull up the owner pulls up in his Promo-Van (Pimped-Out Ice Cream Truck). We found out that although we were early, everyone else was earlier and didnt bring a lot of money so they couldnt play for as long because they couldnt get paint. I told the guy that we were just showing up because we had been going around lately to make sure people where playing safely since it seemed that there was a spurt of games that month. We ended up talking for over 2 hours and got our team sponsored without seeing the rest of them or watching us play.

but others are more like if you know the person, and the toughest require you take a 1 hour ( i think the length is) class on reffing to make you certified
