Note: this post has been updated to reflect a new event schedule.
Since 2013, Compass Paintball has offered customers booking private parties the option of playing SplatMaster, a paintball variant designed for kids 8 and up. This has been an extremely popular game, and today we’re proud to announce that in April we will be hosting our first 3-man SplatMaster tournament.
On May 21st, players ages 7-12 will be able to take part in this special event, which will be played on our speedball field, complete with inflatable bunkers. You can see some photos of a similar event from 2013 above.
Tournament entry is only $20 each, and players do not need to bring anything. All equipment and paint will be supplied by the Compass and are included in the cost. Check-in will start at 8:00 AM, with the team captains meeting at 8:45 before the start of the first game at 9:00.
Sign-ups for this event are now open for individual players. We will not be allowing full 3-man teams to register for this event. Instead, teams will be selected by Compass staff on the day of the event to keep things fair. There will be three age divisions in this tournament: 7-8 years old, 9-10 years old, and 11-12 years old. Teams will be made up of a mix of ages, but players of all ages will be as evenly distributed as possible.
The 1st-, 2nd-, and 3rd-place teams will win medallions. The 1st and 2nd place teams will also get free and half-off entry to the next SplatMaster tournament, respectively. A sportsmanship prize will also be awarded.

To help everyone get ready for the tournament, we will be holding special practice days on dates to be announced soon. Any players registered for the tournament will be welcome to come and play on these practice days. Practice days will cost $10 each per player and include all gear (marker and mask) plus 250 paintballs.
In order to hold this event, we’ll need a minimum of 30 players registered so we can create 10 teams. Players who want to register can pay the entry fee by visiting us any day we’re open or calling us at 843-735-9466.
