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.
Well said Doug!

Very well said doug! And if youve seen the portland uprising video. They play pro nppl and even said it in the video that they pay 100% of entry paint scrimmage practice costs. Not all PRO teams get a free ride

CRU is by far the best field I've ever played at. Best customer service, friendly, and because of the field I'm getting out of the Army. There's no paintball field that compares to CRU.

I believe everyone will be put through the same tryout at the same time, with different arm bands for whatever you are trying out for. The divisional teams will range from d4-d1 PSP and I think d3 nppl

I would guess a d3 and d4 PSP team. Along with crush and a d3 NPPL and a local line or two.More depending on the amount of people willing to play all year on a team. Thats all just speculation though

It will likely be a higher division psp d1/d2 and a lower division psp d3/d4, the pro nppl and d3 nppl.

That isn't always true.. Playing for a paintball team is just like choosing a career. You choose eachother, especially if you are a high skilled player.
