Sweater Return
All Coaches & Managers
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: This year, we have decided NOT to retire ANY SWEATERS.  SO, BOTH SETS MUST BE RETURNED to the office.   

Game sweaters are an extremely valuable club resource and each and every sweater must be returned to the Club at the end of the season in reasonable condition.  It is your responsibility to review the following guidelines with your player and parent group.  Players will be responsible for replacing any damaged or lost sweaters.
 
THERE ARE SET TIMES FOR RETURN OF THESE SWEATERS, AND YOU MUST RETURN THEM TO A VOLUNTEER WHO WILL HELP YOU IN THE RETURN PROCESS.  DO NOT SIMPLY LEAVE THESE IN THE OFFICE WITHOUT A VOLUNTEER HELPING YOU.
 
THESE TIMES ARE:
SATURDAY, MARCH 5TH 10:00 AM – NOON
WEDNESDAY, MARCH  9TH 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
SATURDAY MARCH 12TH – 10:AM – NOON
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 30TH, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
 
Please let me know if other arrangements are necessary and we will do our best to accommodate you.
 
Return of these sweaters is a huge and sometimes frustrating job for volunteers.  Please do your part in helping us.  Please deliver the sweaters as follows:   
 
1. Please ensure that all are accounted for as players (or team budget) will be responsible for replacing any damaged, permanently altered or lost sweaters.  If we need to replace that sweater, we need to know now so we can order for September.
2. Please check that each sweater has not been cut or permanently altered in any way.  If the jersey has been hemmed loosely, remove the stitching before return.
3. "C"s and "A"s must also be removed before return.  Please remove any traces of glue, if applicable.
4. Carefully remove surname name bars leaving the sponsor bars intact. Please arrange to remove these properly – sweaters must not be cut or damaged in the process.
5. Inspect the sweaters for tears and damage.  List all required repairs on an attached explanatory note so volunteers can determine needed repairs.
6. Sweaters must be laundered in cold water and hung to dry completely (and not subject to damp conditions promoting the growth of mildew and mold.) Unlaundered sweaters will not be accepted and will be returned to you to launder. Please have consideration for the volunteers handling these sweaters.
7. Please fold the sweaters, sleeves in to display back number and place in sequence. 
8. Tape or tie to bundle and attach an explanatory note if your set is not complete.
 
We must have these back as soon as possible to allow us to prepare them for the next team's use.
 
If game sweaters are taken out for exhibition games during the tryout process the above applies once again.  Remember that any sweater not returned means a child in the fall does not have a sweater – so please be vigilant in collecting them. 
 
Please be cooperative in the collection and return of game sweaters – it is unfair to those volunteers handling the sweaters, if they are not clean or packaged properly.
 
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, OR NEED CLARIFICATION PLEASE EMAIL ME  ([email protected]) OR ANGELA MAHONEY ([email protected]). 
 
Thank you and good luck to all teams in their final tournaments and playoff games.
 
Thank you.
 
Regards,
Jean Longfield
