Pay for it yourself. Neighborhood jobs, chores for parents. Make it so your parents get something out of it.

Overall the cost is not 1000 the most money you would pay if you a small non serious team is 100 a month for team dues for paint... Events stuff like that
Just like he was, you're wrong too.
More serious teams are made up of entirely or mostly adults or late teens. People with jobs, unless you're at a d1 or pro level sponsorship is just a discount and doesn't help much.
You're also forgetting tournament entry fees, which adds up quickly. Serious teams have a budget for the team, not individuals.
Biggest piece of advice. If you're a younger team... you don't have to practice twice a week, or once every weekend for that matter. As long as you make each practice count and have all members there.
