Honestly, good luck finding a team that will take you at 13. Tournaments are expensive and being on a tournament team is a large time commitment. Teams look at 3 things when accepting players, money, commitment, and skill. Your best bet would be to figure out which fields have the most teams practice there, go play against those teams, and when they start to recognize you as being pretty good, then you talk to them about joining. You should also watch the Texas forum over on PBN as Avid will often post when their sponsored teams have tryouts. I know that there are some teams that practice at DFWAP and the Fort. As for teams, if you're good enough, the Texas Storm Young Guns team would probably be one of your better bets as it is designed for people under 18. Another suggestion is to go into the Avid Extreme Sports proshop in Plano and ask them what you should do to join a team.
If you want to get sponsored, present yourself as a mature adult, not a four year old with a crayon.
