Uniform/Training Clothing F.A.Q.s
Why were these shorts and socks selected by the club?
The navy Adidas Regista shorts and navy Adidas Santos socks were selected for their quality, price and availability for the next 4 years. Therefore, players may not need to purchase the shorts or socks every year. In the Under 10/12 Community leagues, our United DFC teams will play one another so they will need different jersey colours. Each United DFC U10/12 team will wear the same style jersey, in a different colour, with black Admiral socks and shorts.
What happens if my child doesn’t make a Prospects team and I already purchased the gear?
If a player registers for U9-12 Prospects and purchases the navy Adidas shorts and socks, but is then placed at the U10 or U12 Community level where players wear black shorts and socks, the club will exchange the unworn navy for the black and give a refund for the difference. Parents may also wait to see where their child is placed before purchasing the shorts and socks.
Why are you collecting a deposit cheque for the jersey?
We collect a deposit cheque for the jersey to cover replacement costs if a jersey is not returned at the end of the season. A deposit cheque will be collected for every jersey except the Tim Hortons mini jerseys. Mini players may keep their Tim Hortons uniform at the end of the season.
How do I purchase the required/recommended training and game clothing?
The shorts, training shirts and socks can be purchased during online registration or they can be purchased at a later time at the United DFC office, located at #107 – 300 Prince Albert Road. The shorts and socks will arrive in April-May. Tracksuits will be available for purchase at a later date.
What about the other club clothing for sale?
There will be other United DFC clothing for sale. We love to see our fans and players wearing our club colours; any club clothing not mentioned in the table above is optional. There will also be an online store set up in the near future. Check our website in the coming weeks for more details.
