Always inquire if a tournament is offering "crash," where host team students let traveling students stay with them in their dorms or apartments. It's common practice internationally, but many US tournaments are starting to offer it, especially to cash strapped teams.

Oneonta State University has just formed a team in New York State. We are small but we want to grow and be able to go to tournaments--BUT we have no money. I need to know how you fund your teams. So many of you, I know, have college money support. That is not an option for us because New York has no money for anything. How do you fund raise? What do you do? Please send ideas. Thank you!
