MWYL Uniform Policy Change
Parents,
 
For several years now the club has supplied uniforms as part of the overall registration process (and fee).  This approach has had benefits; it allowed the club to re-use and recycle uniforms each year and we've been able to keep the cost of registration reasonably consistent for the last several years, with limited increases.  
 
However, as you have experienced, this process is complicated (at times) and tedious.  Between collecting and redistributing deposit checks, collecting and redistributing uniforms and the cost of time, cleaning, sorting and storing uniforms, this is a process that can certainly be improved. 
 
After discussing in detail as a board we've decided that starting with the upcoming 2016/2017 season (this spring), we will be changing our club's approach to uniforms.  Our goal in making this change is to simplify the uniform process for all while at the same time trying to balance the overall cost of the club and the cost to your families.  As a result:
  • For the 2016/2017 season (this spring):
    • Players will pay a registration fee of $175 per player (grades 3-8) or $65 per player (grades K-2) 
    • Players will also purchase their their newly designed uniforms for $55 (shorts and jersey) for grades 3-8 and $30 (jersey only) for grades K-2. 
    • All of this will be facilitated through the club website during the registration process
  • For the following season (2017/2018): 
    • Players will pay a registration fee of $175 (grades 3-8) and $65 per player (grades K-2).  
    • Players will only be required to purchase uniforms if needed based on size and fit
 
We estimate that a player will get an average of two seasons out of each uniform which would mean that the average cost for each year, over this two year period, would be approximately $203/year per player, thus keeping the cost relatively to you flat over this period.  
 
In anticipation of this change, you will have undoubtedly noticed that we have not collected uniforms from last season (for most teams).  These uniforms are now yours to keep.  However, in the event that you have returned last year's uniform please contact us (mwlacrosse@gmail.com or treasurer@mwyouthlax.com) and we will provide your old uniform back to you at the start of the winter gymnasium time (starting in January 2017).  In addition, we are holding deposit checks that many of you have given us.  To simplify the process, we would like to destroy/shred these checks on your behalf (if you are more comfortable with a different approach please contact us directly and we will be happy to accommodate).  For the very limited number of families that gave us a cash deposit, please contact us directly and we will make the appropriate arrangements.  
 
We will provide more details as we progress forward through the fall and as we start to open registration for the upcoming year.  We ask for your patience and cooperation as we go through this large transition and as always we appreciate your support.  
 
Best regards,
 
MWYL Board of Directors
