The Heroines of Paintball: New Two Part Documentary Spotlights Professional Women's Paintball
PORT SAINT LUCIE, Fla., February 9, 2023 (Newswire.com) - The Heroines are one of the first professional women's paintball teams in the world and in their new two-part documentary premiering Super Bowl Sunday on YouTube, they are taking viewers into a new paintball universe. The game of paintball has long been dominated by men. Now, women are on a mission to inspire and empower young female athletes to change that.
In paintball, players can be any age, any skill or any gender to compete. Traditionally women have competed on the same field on co-ed teams with men. It's one of the things that makes this sport unique. The problem? No one ever really knew the women were there, until now.
In 2021, six paintball field and team owners decided it was time for paintball to have a league that offered women and girls a place to compete in a sport they loved while becoming visible mentors and role models to other female athletes. At the largest event of the season, NXL World Cup - an exhibition match between two all-star women line-ups, would solidify the birth of a new all-women's professional league: The WNXL.
The league made its debut in 2022 and the Original 6 teams competed at three events held across the country. One of these original six teams are The Heroines. Based in Port St. Lucie Florida, the team is made up of girls and women ages 16-32 from all over the country who have competed all over the world, some representing the USA selected to Team USA Paintball.
