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 (grade K, grade 1 and grade 2 do not need to purchase a travel uniform and will receive their team shirts from their coaches.
- In the Fall season all travel players are required to purchase a new jersey. Shorts and socks may be reused from last year.
- 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 https://www.wegotsoccer.com/westford
The fall 2017 soccer season marks the first season that all uniform ordering will be done through our online store. You can access the WYSA store by going to https://www.wegotsoccer.com/westford
As a reminder, ALL WYSA PLAYERS MUST PURCHASE A NEW JERSEY FOR THE FALL SEASON. Returning players who have shorts and socks from last year may reuse those items at their discretion. Parents of returning players should order the same uniform number that their player had last year. New players will receive a notice about what number to specify when they order their player's uniform.
WYSA will NOT accept any returns or make any exchanges of incorrectly sized uniform items that are purchased incorrectly. WeGotSoccer 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.
