I understand, however we cannot discuss details of sponsorship with non-team members, that's standard for almost all sponsor deals as they include NDA's.
However, I can say that if you want to play a full national season of divisional PSP, expect to be practicing most weekends, and make 4-5 national trips. Although there are sponsors that will be helping, the good rule of thumb is... if you can't afford to play without ANY sponsorship then you probably shouldn't sign up to play at all as although there is sponsorship and it will help, there is always something that will get in the way be it a car accident, problem at home, extra days you want to put in before tournaments, travel scrimmages, etc. So if you're thinking... I can't afford it 'unless' I get help, the probably answer is that you can't afford it. Sucks, but it's the way of paintball yet.
It is correct that D1 gets better deals and pro teams get the best deals but there are MANY pro teams who still pay a good chunk of what it costs to play at the national level. Before the economy issues pros (and divisional teams) got it better, but it's tougher out there.
That being said, I hope to see some good people and some good tryouts. Come ready to play, have a good time, and see if you are a fit for any of the squads, D4 - pro, and CRU fits what you're looking for in a team/program. It's a two way street.
