Upper sixth Btec Level 3 Diploma Sport Development & Coaching students visited Delta Force Paintball in Wakefield last week for their last trip of the year.

They spent the day learning about paintballing combat skills and worked in teams to put these into practice. This helped them to understand the importance of team work and co-operation to success.

The students really enjoyed the combat even though there were a few bruises!

Student, Ashley Olson, really enjoyed the day out, “Paintballing was the best out of the six trips we have had on the course. It was great to try a more extreme sport and it was a great team building activity.”

Another student, William Burns-Smith commented, “It was easily the best trip so far, loads of fun. What a way to sign off a great two years with the sports department.”

Ashley agreed, “The sports team have been really fantastic. I will really miss them.”

Delta Force Paintball was awarded the prestigious UK Paintball Centre of Excellence Award for the 2013 winter season. The Wakefield Paintball centre has a fantastic reputation for their outstanding service and their leading paintball facilities.
