About Us

Who we are

We are more than a scenario team. We are more than a scenario producer. We are more than just a charity group. We are all of the above. We are Team Defiance, a scenario based paintball team that also produces and runs our own scenario and charity events. Our mission statement is simple: Play Safe, and Have Fun! It’s a short and sweet synopsis of our goals and values as a team. We want to play, we want to have a fun time, we don’t want to take ourselves too seriously, but we also want to grow the sport, improve the culture of safety and sportsmanship, and whenever possible we want to give back to the community that supports us in our endeavors. We operate out of our home field, NR Paintball(located off of Rt. 100 in Severn MD) , where we host our Team-produced events. When we’re not running events we are playing in them, and can be seen in scenarios up and down the east coast, traveling as far as Chicago on occasion in search of a good time.

Our Story

Team Defiance was founded on July 27, 2014 with the intention of filling a void we observed within the Maryland paintball community. Our goal wasn’t to simply be a competitive and actively playing team, We wanted to become an influential force within the sport and our own local community. With this notion taken to heart, we have expanded our team’s capabilities from simply competing in events to organizing and running our own scenarios, charity games, youth clinics, and marker-class specific games. We are driven in our mission to grow the sport of paintball, improve the culture, give back to the community, and yes, grow the team into the dominant scenario force it is today.
