How do I sponsor someone as a Candidate?

  • To sponsor a candidate you must have already attended a Tres Dias, Vida Nueva, Pescador or other recognized weekend.
  • As a sponsor, it is your responsibility to arrange your candidate's transportation to-and-from the weekend.  You will also assist them in completing their application and waivers/health forms.
  • Although many sponsors choose to gift their candidate with the weekend fee, payment of the candidate fee is not the responsibility of the sponsor. You will want to discuss this with your candidate.
  • After we receive your candidate's application, you will receive a request to complete an online Sponsor Confirmation Form where you will will provide some additional information to complete your candidate's application.
  • To assist the team in final preparations, we ask that all Candidate Applications be turned in seven days prior to the weekend.
