Detailed paintball history: Started like many others, and when I got into speedball I went full fledged. I try and play once a month, or twice.

Dues will be voted on by the team, if they want it, and how much.

1 reason you shouldnt tryout because your not dedicated most teams are "expensive" if you want on a good team so maybe paintball is not the sport for you idk? if you become pro its going to be more expensive then this so y are you playing paintball kid????

Why would becoming pro be more expensive

Do you mean being a pro, or going up the ladder to becoming a pro?

Until you reach D3,D2, D1, paintball is going to be expensive, I mean not all of us are dependent on mommy and daddy to pay our way through. At our level, there isn't much in the Finacial sponsor bracket, you have to work your way up to that kind of sponsorship, Unless your playing for Carolina Gridlock, or Dynasty Entourage or big teams like that. If you can't afford it then that's fine don't show up. There are plenty of Dedicated players out there who wanna play and CAN afford it.

It's not hard with sponsorships. I'm pretty sure Gridlock (R.I.P.) was a lot more expensive then you would imagine. I know of a Beginner team last season that didn't pay any entry fees, paint fees, or even gas for half the events.

...also, spell check is your friend.
