Each club has different rules and guidelines for minimum age of players. Rule of thumb for most (not all) clubs is 16 with parental consent. As for buying guns you have to be 18.

The Airsoft Canada community generally enforces the 18+ rule for both sales and games. Some hosts may allow underage players to attend under some circumstances however that's rare and usually only applies to 16-17 year olds.

Your best bet is paintball until you're 18.

I'm guessing english isn't your first language. Many clubs appreciate good grammar and spelling as a sign of maturity and working on that will gain you more respect from them, it also shows responsibility which is the most important part of airsoft.

Where in Canada are you moving to? There are many clubs depending on what province and city you are living in.

There's no actual websites. IF you're lucky, some groups in the area you're moving to will accept minors.

Pryvit Leykon,

Check out the Ontario games section for game happening in the Toronto area. Best plan of action would be to hang out on these boards until you are 18 and then get age verified. Once that happens a whole world of airsoft retailers opens up to you and it's very simple to get pretty much anything you could want.

In the mean time, some venues/fields have rentals, and if they let 16yo+ play then there you go.

I know of a team just outside Toronto that is willing to host some 16+ games but there are a few requirments and the team reserves the right to say no. Also these games are only hosted on there private field. This being said, I don't think they are hosting till the spring, other than maybe the odd game. This is airsofts off season, once the weather warms up games will be more freq.

Also not to discourage you but you won't learn perfect english in a year. I've been speaking it 18 years and still am far from perfect. But in a year you will easily gain a reasonable understanding of the language.

Good luck, have fun and stay safe!

Also, learn to be patient.

Players tend to get annoyed very quickly at impatient kids. Show patience and maturity and you have a better chance of being welcome into groups.
