On that note, you are going to want to actually get your team together first. After this is done, you guys need to actually play for a bit. Just about no one is going to sponsor a team that does not actually exist yet. You to need to get together, play hard, get you name out there. Then sponsors will be more likely to help your team out.
For a new team just starting out, a good place to start would be your local paintball field. Approach them and state your interest. If you play on their field a lot you may be able to start out with things like cheaper to free field fee's, discounts on paint, discounts on gear (if they have a shop). This is the first step in moving up with sponsors. Eventually they may pick you up as a team and do what they can to outfit you.
And finally, good luck and just keep playing

I'm not sure but there might be a thread on this. I'll try and find it and make a link for now I'll answer you're question though.
First thing you need to do is get a committed group of players together that will put time aside to practice once or twice a month just to ease into it. You can practice more as you get more involved. A good way to start is with friends if any of you're friends play you already have some chemistry, if not try and find players in you're area. You can put up flyers in you're school or local field saying you're looking for teammates. If you run into someone on you're field you really get along with ask them.
Once you have the amount of players you want on you're team you could set up a couple of times to practice each month and figure out what position everybody will be. These practices should include conditioning drills, and teamwork drills. You can practice these without paint. I'll give a few examples of good drills to get you're team organized.
Break Drill: This is very basic but very important. This drill just practices the break you can make designated breakout plays and practice them. Have you're captain go over the plan before you do it and then have someone yell break. You all run to you're positions with you're eyes upfield and pretending to aim downfield. When everyone is in there spot regroup and do it again.
Cover Drills: Again you don't need paint for this and you can practice communication skills. Do you're breakout then communicate with you're team and slowly move up the field until you're at the opposite end of the field.
Bunker Defense Drills: This is probably better with paint because it really can't be simulated without it. Have one player try and bunker a defender and the defender has to prevent it, simple but a must because it's nice to know how to protect yourself from bunkering because it will happen.
For Sponsors: Be professional, a good role model, outgoing, be an active member at you're field. If you're field is hosting an event talk to the vendors, show them that you're the guy they would want advertising for them. If they think you're a regular and see a lot of people from the field showing you respect thats the player they want advertising for them. Its not all about owning people but having there respect who would you listen to advice from more a jerk who is a good player or a good player who has helped you out before, the answer is obvious. Having a few torneys under you're belt will help too.
Hope this helps I'm gonna look for that link now though. Ok no link but you can go to the regional area and put up a add for players and sponsors in the State Section that may help.
