REVISIONS

  • Adoption Date: April 1, 2018
  • Revision Date: April 1, 2019


GENERAL INFORMATION

Uniform kits are provided to players at no additional charge. To simplify the ordering process, GSSA has agreed to purchase every player a new uniform kit each season. However, parents may choose to not receive a jersey (Spring Season only) by opting out as follows:

GSSA will provide on the spring player registration the following question:

Check box if you intend to use the uniform kit provided last season and therefore do not need GSSA to order you a new kit for this spring season.

This opt out is optional and does not result in any kind of refund or discount to the player’s registration fee.

GSSA will do our best to accommodate player’s registration size requests. However, GSSA does not guarantee wait list registrants will receive their requested size, in which case, GSSA reserves the right to provide a default size from existing inventory. Default sizes are based on the average size jersey per age group.

Returning coaches have priority in jersey color preference. All coaches will be asked their top three (3) jersey color preferences when registering on a first come first serve basis.

Any GSSA Board Member may issue oral warnings for minor violations. All other disciplinary actions (written warnings, suspensions, expulsions) may be issued only by the GSSA President.
