Travel Uniform Procedures
The following applies to players in the travel soccer program. This includes players in Grade 3/4, Grades 5/6, Grades 7/8 and Grade 9-12. In-town players (Gr K-2) and Rec Players do not need to purchase a travel uniform and will receive their team shirts from their coaches.
- In the Fall 2020 season any travel players that do not have the gray jersey and maroon shorts from the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 seasons are required to purchase a new complete uniform kit.
- The jersey is good for the fall and spring season. If a spring player did not play in the fall season or needs replacement pieces uniforms may be ordered at soccer.com. Details will be emailed to players.
Players who do not have the Gray jerseys and maroon shorts from the FALL 2019 / SPRING 2020 season will need to purchase a new jersey for the fall season. Returning players who have maroon shorts and socks from last year may reuse those items at their discretion. Players will receive an email from their age director with ordering instructions.
WYSA will NOT accept any returns or make any exchanges of incorrectly sized uniform items that are purchased incorrectly. Soccer.Com will typically accept returns of shorts and socks, but customized items (jerseys) will not be eligible for return. It is important that parents select the proper size uniform when placing their order.
To help parents with sizing, WYSA is offering the following guidelines and support:
- Parents are reminded that soccer uniforms tend to fit snugly, typically much more so than street clothes. If your player is "between sizes" in street clothes (for example, sometimes wears Youth Large and sometimes Youth X-Large), parents are encouraged to select the larger size that typically fits their child.
- WYSA jerseys will be replaced every year, socks and shorts may be reused as long as they fit the player. Keep this in mind when considering sizing of uniform items.
- There is a sizing chart on the WYSA store site, and when in doubt parents are encouraged to opt for a slightly larger size than their child wears in their everyday clothing. As a very general rule of thumb, WYSA has seen that our players tend to wear the following sizes based upon their age groups:
- Grade 3 - 4 players tend to wear Youth Large or Youth X-Large
- Grade 5 - 6 players tend to wear Youth x-Large or Adult Small
- Grade 7 - 8 players tend to wear Adult Small or Adult Medium
- High School age players range through all of the Adult sizes depending upon the players age and size
The above are only guidelines, and parents should consider their players street clothing size, refer to the sizing chart, and bring their player down to try on uniform items if they have any questions about sizing.
