Start small. Before you get any sponsors you need experience. Sponsors want you to get their name out their and if you don't play every weekend and don't participate in many tournaments then they don't want to help out because you are really not bringing anything to the table. You need to be able to show them that you guys are committed and are able to promote their product/service. Start small. Remember nothings free. Start with a local field and some local companies and family companies then if you think you have what it takes move on from there.

There is no way you can get sponsored if you're not going to be playing tornies. The whole point is you're getting their name out there and if you aren't playing tournies that's just not going to happen.

I hate to come off rude and as the devil's advocate, but how old are you?

If you can't form complete sentences with proper grammar or spelling, no company will invest any time into helping your team out. For example, I submitted my team's resume to a few companies. While some of them respectfully rejected us as a sponsored team, they commented on how professional our presentation was compared to the numerous kids that send in a request for sponsorship similar to how you started this thread.

Professionalism and respect will go a long way to getting sponsors. Even so, that is not all that you need. You have to show them your potential for being able to promote their company. If you don't play in tournaments or compete in any fashion, they will not look at you. It's really as simple as that.

Unfortunately, without a track record of your team's performance and quality, no real company will sponsor your team.

To be honest, since you are a "young gun", don't focus or worry about sponsorships. You have many years to focus and build your skills and grow as a team if you stay together that long. Only after proving yourselves will any company look at you in a favorable light.

Unless you're a pro you're goin' to get jack**** as far as sponsorship goes other than possibly discounts from your field and possibly store, but like eruffini said it never hurts to learn to spell and construct a sentence.

It's a 2 way street nothing's ever for free.. Why dont you go to a local field and talk to the owner or person in charge if you could help around the place for awhile (free dont ask for anything). Then after you get your foot in the door ask about a possible sponsorship and the whole team could help around the field.. If you are not making the field owner money or saving him/her time then your use less..

We do discount's at my field for people that play they alot and help out whenever it is needed.. When kids come in asking for sponsorships or "deals" I ask them if they have a problem helping around the place.. Example to kid's on here hang at the field all the time paint shipment comes in a they start unloading it without asking me that's a plus. Now if they left when it got there your ****ing crazy if you think your going to get a sponsor ship from me..

How I see it with alot of new players.

What they want cause they started a team. woohoo

Give me paint at $40 a case Entry for $10 and air for $5

We will put your name on our jersey..

Ok

Me

I will sell you paint at $100 a case and $40 for entry and air together

I will put your name on my wall
