WELCOME TO THE 2016-2017 FOX CITIES UNITED SOCCER SEASON!
Here are some helpful tools and dates to mark on your calendar for the 2016-17 season. We want you to have all of the information you need along the way, so please reach out to any of the following to answer any questions you have:
, Director of Coaching or at 920.538.1966
Team Managers will be emailing you to introduce themselves prior to the beginning of the season and they will be your main source of information throughout the season. All board members and veteran family members are also always willing to help you. We will connect with you at the potluck this summer in July.
UNIFORM ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS
If you are new to the club, please order your player’s uniform before July 1 to ensure shipment arriving at your home prior to August games or tournament play. Our club uniforms are a custom design and everything is sublimated into the fabric so they will never have numbers peeling away or piping that falls off. The specialty fabric/uniforms also requires a longer turnaround time so please prepare for this.
Sizing - If your player did not try on sample uniforms or gear at tryouts, please use the fitting instructions available in the Admiral Webstore to determine the proper size. Because each uniform is made for the player, they will not take returns.
Player numbers have already been assigned and you will start by selecting your player team (based on their age) and then name based on the roster choices. Once you complete this, begin your shopping by placing the items in the "gear bag."
Step 1 - Select tab with players age (born 1998- 2002 indicates U15-19 born 2003-2008 indicates U11-14)
Step 2 - Each player requires a uniform package. Purchasing the uniform package saves some money and provides the minimum number of items required.
It is recommended to have extra Professional socks ($5.06 per pair) and Performance Ts ($14.30). Your player will wear the Performance T as their practice uniform for Fox Cities United. Your player will have two practices per week and a third optional practice opportunity so keep this in mind when ordering.
Step 3 - Online shipping and handling costs will apply so it is encouraged to review all tabs available in the Webstore before completing your order. The player is not required to wear long sleeve (LS) jerseys or warm ups, they are there to purchase if desired. If you decide to purchase only one LS jersey, it is recommended to order the primarily lime green LS design. Our club wears the lime set color more than our blue set since many local teams have the royal blue in uniforms. We wear the color that makes sense for the team, it is not strictly determined by "home" or "away" colors so players should always have both uniform sets with them.
