Uniform link now active
The link to purchase Wolverines uniforms, pants shells and other apparel is now active. Players can now go online (link below) for purchasing or go into the Sport Zone store for sizing and purchasing.
As mentioned in my previous email it will be up to the coaches to notify the players and families and let them know if they will have mandatory pant shells and if they will be choosing the option of yoga pants or wind pants. There will be one jacket piece that will be standard across the association. It is a Bauer shell that is part of a 3 in 1 jacket. Only the outer shell will be mandatory but families can decide if they would like to purchase the additional fleece or flex bubble liner.
If team staff are content with the apparel the players currently have from the previous season they can take that option. Whether to make the purchase of new off-ice uniforms mandatory for your team is up to the team staff but if off-ice uniforms are purchased it will have to be the approved standard style now mandatory from the executive.
As mentioned the link below is now active with all mandatory items. Additional apparel (i.e. hoodies) will be added to this online store in the near future but all items are available at the Sport Zone store, 92 Lodge St, Waterloo.
Why did the association decide to get new uniforms?
We decided as an association that we wanted to get back to looking "uniform"; we wanted to be able to represent our association in a similar fashion. All the Wolverines will look the same when entering the arenas. People will recognize us by our uniforms, like how other associations are recognized.
The past few years, teams have been getting their own uniforms. This is an extra cost to families, if teams/coaches change their team wear for the year. Having one uniform that girls can wear year after year is much more cost effective.
How do we get a team fitting?
Please contact Sportzone to set this up - 5197258643
People can go in individually as well.
It depends on the item. Mandatory team uniforms normally will take 2-3 weeks. Noting the association started this process late this season, so it may take additional time to get wind suits. Please remember in the past that these orders wouldn't be starting until September, when teams were formed, since we just started spring tryouts this year.
What items are considered mandatory?
The outer Bauer flex jacket and either the matching wind suit pants OR black yoga pants. It is important to note that all team members must wear JUST yoga pants or JUST the wind suit pants. The team is expected to match.
There are other optional items - the zip in fleece insert as well as the zip in warmer bubble jacket option. These zip in underneath the mandatory outer shell and will make the jacket warmer.
There are also optional hoodies, hats, toques, tshirts etc and can be found online or in-store.
Do I have to go to the store in Waterloo to order?
