RED SOX vs. YANKEES and GOLF at BASIN HARBOR, raffle tickets!

As promised last month, we are launching our most exciting fundraiser all year — an amazing raffle opportunity that was donated by two very generous parents. We will be raffling off two tickets for a RED SOX vs YANKEES game at Fenway Park and a round of golf at Basin Harbor!!

1st Prize:  Red Sox vs. Yankees, July 15, 2017 at 4:05 PM, Section 17, Loge Box 123, Row LL, Seats 3 & 4.  

If you don’t win the baseball tickets, a second winner will be drawn and will receive a round of golf at Basin Harbor! So one raffle ticket purchase gives you two chances to win!

2nd Prize:  Round of golf for two at Basin Harbor (http://www.basinharbor.com/golf/), 18 holes with cart, Sunday – Thursday – no holidays, good thru June 2018.

Raffle tickets are $20 each. Please print the attached sheet and start selling today!  We have a goal of each player selling just 5 tickets (of course, sell more if you can!).  The player that sells the most raffle tickets on each team will get a free AU water bottle and sticker. 

In addition to selling tickets to family and friends, post this exciting opportunity on your Facebook page and your local Front Porch Forum. Here’s some sample language to get you started:

“Love the Red Sox and hate the Yankees?  Love the Yankees and hate the Red Sox?  Then we have the perfect raffle opportunity for you!

A second winner will be drawn, and that person will win a round of golf at Basin Harbor Club! Check out their website to take a look at their incredible course.”

Socks for 2017 uniforms!

Hello…

So I have good news and bad news. The original socks we chose as our uniform component were sold out until April 15…  We had hoped that they were basic enough to find anywhere else. The black were…the white was not. So we switched the style of both and color of the white. So we are all set…wait for it….

The new socks are still back ordered in certain sizes. But you can find these socks at DICKS, Amazon.com and I’m sure other sports stores and websites. Here are the socks for you to reference.

We apologize for this… This is the second year that socks have been an issue. If you have ordered them, you can email or call Soccer.com customer service at custserv@sportsendeavors.com or 1-800-950-1994 and cancel the original ones. If they have these in stock for you, they will substitute them in. There should be no extra costs anywhere.

Happy Sock Hunting.

UNIFORM ORDERING Info!

ADDISON UNITED SOCCER CLUB UNIFORM ORDERING

Uniforms & Required Equipment

It’s time to order your player’s uniform, and before you do, we have some information and tips to share with you.

REQUIRED UNIFORM

U8 – green jersey, black shorts, black socks:

Your team jersey will be provided by AUSC.  In a few weeks you will receive an email with size information, and once we have everyone’s size, we will order the jerseys.  You can order black shorts and socks through Soccer.com or wear your own.  Any other color shorts and socks are not allowed.

U10 – green jersey, black shorts, black socks

You will order your green jersey through Soccer.com.  You will get an email from Soccer.com that contains a link to the uniform kit page.  Your player’s number will be in the system already, so you do not need to worry about entering it anywhere.  You can order black shorts and socks through Soccer.com or wear your own.  Any other color shorts and socks are not allowed.

U12 – U18 – green and white jerseys (2), black shorts, black and white socks (2 pairs)

You must purchase the entire uniform kit through Soccer.com.  You may wear the kit we wore over the last two years, but your shorts and socks must be Adidas.  Our uniforms are by Adidas, and the requirement is that you will not substitute other manufacturers, e.g. Puma or UnderArmour, for our kit.  You will get an email from Soccer.com that contains a link to the uniform kit page.  Your player’s number will be in the system already, so you do not need to worry about entering it anywhere.

BOYS AND GIRLS UNIFORMS: http://www.soccer.com/club/17058168/

This year we have separate ordering pages for boys ( http://www.soccer.com/club/17058168/ ) and girls ( http://www.soccer.com/club/17058168/ ).  On the boys’ page, the jerseys and shorts come in both youth and men’s sizes.  On the girls’ page, you will see two jerseys – one is for women, and the other is for youth.  Similarly, you will see two different shorts on the girl’s page – one is for women, and the other is for youth.  Note that the women’s inseam is 3” shorter than the youth inseam.

REQUIREMENTS FOR WEARING THE UNIFORM

For the U12-U18 teams, the home uniform is white jersey, black shorts, and white socks.  The away uniform is green jersey, black shorts, and black socks.  All AUSC players are expected to be neat in appearance, i.e. wearing the correct uniform, socks pulled up, etc.  Please note that girls are NOT to roll over the waistband of their shorts to make them shorter.  You do not see the US Women’s team doing this!

JERSEY NUMBERS

If your player already had a number with Addison United, and if it was listed during registration, then we used that number in Soccer.com.  There were a few instances where players on the same team had the same number.  If this happened, the AU player with the number the longest retained the number, and the newer player was assigned a new number.  Any player without a number was assigned one.  We are unable to make any changes to jersey numbers.

CORRECT SIZING

There are size charts linked to each item.  However, when you click on them, the first size guides are for Soccer.com gear.  You MUST scroll down to find the Adidas size charts.                    ( http://www.soccer.com/content/size-chart )  Please make sure you are in the correct place, so there is no confusion about how to size the gear.

CUSTOMER SERVICE

Soccer.com provides excellent customer service.  If you have any questions about the uniform kit or any other gear, please contact them directly at custserv@sportsendeavors.com or 1-800-950-1994.
