Uniforms are issued to all players at the start of the Fall season. The club outfits each player with a uniform and black socks. These socks can be kept by the players. The players need to provided shin guards, soccer shoes, and black shorts for themselves.
At the end of the season, we are requesting that the coaches return all of the uniforms to the club. Uniforms cost the club a lot of money. If you have uniforms to return to the club, please return them to the WSC Uniform drop bin listed at the Contact Us website. This is new for 2011. Please help us save money and reuse the good jerseys.
Here is the Uniform Policy.
