The Coyote Paintball Club at CSUSB is a new organization on campus. Jeremy Ferguson, president of the club, founded it in 2015.
“My goal when starting the club was to compete in the NCPA which is the National Collegiate Paintball Association,” And to make paintball affordable for students. Paintball is an expensive sport but I did a lot of networking and secured many sponsorship’s to make it more affordable for students at CSUSB,” said Jeremy Ferguson.
The Coyote Paintball Club is a very active club. They meet off campus, and as a club, they have traveled to Las Vegas and Florida.
“We’ve competed in NXL Las Vegas and the National Collegiate Paintball Association Championship in Florida. We actually helped build the Paintball field we practice at, Action Start Games (ASG) in Perris, CA, we spent months volunteering to get it ready,” said Ferguson.
Most college students have a limited budget. The Coyote Paintball Club has made paintball more accessible to everyone.
“What would normally cost $80-90 a day only costs $30-40 with us,” Ferguson said. “That includes everything the person would need. If they want to play paintball they should join the club. If they already play paintball and want to be on the team they should join the club.”
As a club, they are able to play about every other weekend.
Currently, the club has about 40 members, and it is free to join.
Due to the clubs many sponsorships, they get discounts on everything one may want for their paintball needs.
