Uniforms, Gear & Shoes
In the Fall, players receive a jersey, shorts and socks. Some age groups receive one goalie jersey per team and individual shin guards. Shin guards are expected to last a player a couple of seasons and therefore do not come with the uniform every year.
In the Spring, players receive a jersey. Shorts from previous seasons are acceptable.
Shin guards are required for all players. Soccer socks should completely cover the shin guards.
VIP: Size 4 ball

Soccer Shoes & Cleats
All players must wear lace up shoes (velcro is okay but not ideal) to play soccer. Slip ons are unacceptable and unsafe. Turf shoes may be worn on all fields. Cleats may only be worn on artificial turf fields but not on grass. Because of the sheer number of WSSL players, we have a special agreement with the Department of Parks and Recreation that our players will not wear cleats on the grass fields on which we play in order to preserve the longevity of the grass.
