What are the best prizes? Cash, of course! If a prize is anything other than cash, in most cases you have to sell it to turn it into cash. Why have to go to that trouble? The retail value of products may sound good, but it is only worth about half the value in cash. At CFPS, many years ago we figured out the best way to take care of our players is to pay cash prizes.

2017 - Focusing on the things that matter

We're paintball players. I started playing paintball in 1998. Seven years later I wanted to start a paintball tournament series like  one I'd want to play in. What that meant to me was - a fair and strictly adhered to ranking system, quality fields, national formats, inexpensive to play, a lot of refs on the field, player friendly rules, and fair prizes. 

The SPL and CFPS have agreed to produce a series of combined paintball tournaments that should make for the largest regional events this year. The 2017 SPL First Strike Sunshine State Open will be held in conjunction with the CFPS at Central Florida Paintball in Lakeland, FL.

Our two leagues will be working side by side to offer divisional teams all popular competitive formats. The SPL will run our regular D4 and D5 5-man plus D4/5 and D6 3-man RaceTo-2 formats for SPL and CFPS teams. The CFPS will continue to run NXL Affiliate Xball format for D4 and D3 teams. Getting this together required that both leagues reschedule event dates. The new date for the First Strike Sunshine State Open/CFPS Event #2 is April 8th and 9th, 2017.
