+WHAT UNIFORM DOES MY CHILD WEAR?

  • Competitive players will receive two uniforms. One gold jersey to be worn with green shorts and gold socks and one green jersey to be worn with green shorts and green socks. For home games our players wear gold jersey with green shorts and gold socks but we ask parents and players to ALWAYS bring both uniforms. This is because in some instances players will be required to change if the opponents colors are too similir. If players do not change the game will be forfeited.
  • Goalkeepers- we have made the decision for our keepers to wear the same uniform as our field players, however, they will need to wear the opposite color. For example, if the team is wearing gold with gold socks at home the keeper needs to be wearing green with green socks.
