THE SAS WOODSBALL STORY
 SAS Woodsball was founded in 2006 by a band of fellow paintballers from wisconsin with roots to private land "outlaw" paintball. As they grew more serious and lead by Steve "Necro" Kaltenbach, they began to play at more traditional fields. They began to notice players that did not play with the same standard of honor and integrity as they had valued when playing against one another. Players overshot, wiped hits, bullied, and did not respect their fellow players. Some fields were ill equipped or unwilling to confront their customers to do the right thing. They knew they had to do something and with their fledgling group of players it only seemed like the logical next step to grow into a team. Inspired to do more, they vowed to lead by example, and become stewards of the game of paintball. SAS Woodsball, from it's humble beginnings- only half a dozen strong - has over the past decade, grown to a worldwide force of thousands of players. From all corners of the globe, players have been inspired by it's mission to be better players and be better people. What about you? Are you made of the right stuff?
