Uniforms & Required Equipment

Addison United official uniform

Uniform Policy:ausc_logov2

Addison United Soccer Club Uniform Policy for all Players and Coaches – In October 2015, Addison United Soccer Club (AUSC) redesigned its logo.  As AUSC moves forward, we have implemented these policies to create greater unity within the Club. All uniforms within our programs will be the same throughout the Club, including logos and text.  Requests to add sponsors must be approved by the AUSC Board.

CLUB Level players – A new uniform kit is not required for Club Level if a player has a uniform available from a previous year.  The player must wear the appropriate color shorts and socks for the season.

PREMIER Level players – Uniform kit is required. We are in the second year of a uniform cycle. This means that if you already have a uniform from 2016 spring season with the new logo, and it fits, then there is no need to purchase a new uniform. The player must wear the appropriate color shorts and socks for the season.  The full uniform kit is required.  Players may not wear shorts and socks that are the right color but are not part of the official uniform kit.

Uniform colors:

Home:  White jersey, Black shorts, White socks

Away:  Green jersey, Black shorts, Black socks

Games and Tournaments:

Team Players –

  • Every player shall wear CLUB uniform (appropriate colors); shorts, socks, and proper jersey, at each game. The player will have socks pulled up, and shirts tucked in at all times from warm-up to the end of the game.  Soccer cleats correctly/tightly laced and shin guards on.
  • Injured/non-playing players shall have AUSC jersey on in order to stand/sit with the team on sidelines.

Trainings:

  • No set training uniform.  Soccer cleats or sneakers/indoor soccer shoes correctly/tightly laced and shin guards on.

Team Coaches –

  • Team coaches and managers will wear AUSC logo shirt, jacket, or hat.

 

Uniform Provider:

The Club is using Soccer.com as our uniform provider.

The biggest advantages to Soccer.com is the embroidery, screen-printing, and the extras.  The Uniform Coordinator will have a roster with each player’s number and email address and will enter that info onto Soccer.com.  When it is time to order the uniform, an email goes to each family with a link that shows what equipment is required and what extras are available.  Each family will place their order at the Soccer.com website from a page customized for Addison United Soccer Club.  Your orders are sent to you directly.  For uniform questions, email our coordinator.

ADDISON UNITED SOCCER CLUB UNIFORM ORDERING

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.
