  • Proper Wear: Shirts (practice t-shirts OR game jersey) MUST BE FULLY TUCKED IN AT ALL TIMES -- NO front tucks or side tucks allowed.   This is part of presenting a professional, ready-to-play appearance and it is also part of the discipline we expect of our players and teams.

  • Undergarments: If a player chooses to wear undergarments that will be visible, such as long-sleeved shirts under the jersey, compression shorts, etc - these must match the color of BOTH the jersey and shorts (white for white jersey and shorts; red for red jerseys; black for black shorts). 

    • ​Note that FIFA (the international governing body for football/soccer) recently modified its rules to mandate that undergarments match the game shirt and short colors.

    • The exception to this is that for Practices Only, players may wear undershirts and/or undershorts of another club color (red, black, white).  No other colors are acceptable.

    • Goalkeepers ONLY may wear long pants; field players may only wear under-shorts. Under-shirts (long or short-sleeved) must be body-fitting and not loose or bulky, such as Under Armour or similar brands. No sweatshirts are to be worn under game jerseys or practice shirts.
       

  • Other cold-weather accessories:  it is acceptable for players to wear “field gloves” and either headbands (to cover ears) or knit caps.   The only colors acceptable are one of the club colors – red, black, white.  No hard-billed caps or visors are permitted on the field.
