Is there a lot of players in your area? If yes, try to find new members before you kick them.
If no, then just suspend them from playing with your group until they are willing to listen to rules.
When it happens during a game... MAKE THEM LEAVE just for the day.

Our team have created a set of bylaws in which we conduct ourselves on and off the playing field. What has been written is more common sensical type of rules but at least when you have something written down for them to read, they have no excuse for not following any rules set by the game or the team founders.
However, if those that are not following orders are your friends or "close" friends, well then the decision should be either, "The team or friendship?"
Course that's my opinion

What exactly are they doing wrong? If it is something that has to do with safety then tell them what they are or aren't doing is wrong and if they continue kick them off. Also when you practice maybe ask them what they think of plans or tactics, maybe they just don't follow your orders because they are not winning or them are getting sent to the dead box a lot. If its them try to talk with them and if they continue kick them off the team, fun and safety are the most important things in paintball and if they are preventing either of those and wont change kick them off, even if you don't have someone to replace them.

So... stuff like that.

If you're players aren't following your orders, that's your fault. If they're not following rules, that's their fault and on my team I have no problem (in fact is is policy) in separating players from the team. Warnings of course are only fair, but a rule is a rule and in paintball if there are no rules well then we just don't have a game anymore -- we have total war.

The Paintball Sniper has already done the first step: convince you they don't exist.

Have a talk with your entire team about working together, but make sure the unruly members realize it's being directed to them. The most extreme thing you can do is kick them off the team, but if gameplay is being threatened by them, it needs to be done.

If it's safety, there's no real reason for them to stick around if they can't follow safety procedures.

First you have to think to yourself,is this even an actual team?I know ive been on about 3 "teams" that were just friends playing in their back yard.Thats not a team,thats no where close to a team.Now lets say you are an actual team,and now you have a couple players who dont follow game rules or dont lesson to what you are saying.Kick em,if your playing in a league you can only have a limited roster,and filling it with unreliable players isnt going to help you.If your a scenario team,well it wont really matter what you do but i would boot them anyways,dont want a couple rouges ruining your teams name.Im probably comming of as a prick but oh well,gotta do what you gotta do.
