Spring Registration

Parents,

 
Today we have opened registration for the 2016/2017 season.  Consistent with our note to you on our uniform policy change in September, we have updated the registration process to reflect the purchase of new uniforms for your players.  
 
While the registration process will function substantially the same as in the past, we have added a series of questions within the registration process designed to capture the uniform orders.  
  • The first question, which addresses whether a uniform is needed, only has the option of a “yes” answer this year (this will change next year when all players have their uniforms).  When this question is answered yes, a separate charge will be included as part of the checkout/payment process.
  • The second question deals with sizing.  As a reminder, uniforms tend to run small, so please plan accordingly.  
  • The third question deals with the players choice for their number.  We realize that players often have a specific number that they are looking for.  In an effort to make this process as fair as possible, we are asking for a player’s top 3 choices for numbers.  Number choices will be awarded on a first come, first served basis based on the date of registration.  If you child has a particular number in mind please register as soon as possible.    
 
We’ve included a picture of the uniforms below. While this is the most recent and likely final version of the uniforms, there may be some small edits before our order is placed.  
 
Separately, for the boys and girls in 3rd - 8th grade, we have also added an option to purchase a shooting shirt that players wear under their uniforms.  This has been included as two separate questions during the registration process.  This shirts will come in two styles and are priced at either $30 (including designs and numbers) or $11(for only the team logo).  Again, these are optional purchases for the player and they are NOT a requirement for the uniform.  Like the uniform process described above, if you answer yes to either optional shirt, you will be charged during the checkout.  Included in the picture below are the two styles of shooting shirts.  
 
Lastly, with changes to the uniform process, optional shirts and pinnies, our order to the uniform supplier will be large and take time to process.  As a result, we will be closing the registration process on January 31, 2017 in order to ensure that there is enough time for uniforms to be available for our first games in the March/April timeframe.  It is critical that your child be registered before that date in order to have a uniform available for their first game.  
 
Please do not hesitate to reach out to any one of our Board Members with questions you might have.

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
