I got few question…
How many people will get bass? That goes for the team and shirt.
Second, what are the benefits of being in a jr team?

First place gets the gear. Jr. Team gets to try out prototypes, get shirts, and stickers for comps. Depending on how often they compete they’ll probably get a yo-yo from each new run of yo-yo’s. Still determining what the difference between the Jr. Team and the full on Team will be, there will definitely be more perks, perhaps traveling expenses and space in a team room at comps. We’re just not there yet.

I really am going to try to do this.
