Players are responsible for coming to all games and practices in the appropriate gear. The game uniform consists of a navy jersey (home), white jersey (away), navy shorts and navy socks. The practice uniform consists of a practice tee shirt, and shorts and socks of the player's choosing.
At all games and practices, players must have proper soccer shoes (either cleats or turf), shin guards, soccer ball and personal water bottle. Players should bring both jerseys to each game.
WSSL's official uniform source is Upper 90, 697 Amsterdam Ave (at W 94th St), New York, NY 10024, (646) 863-3105. WSSL families get a 10% discount on all merchandise at the Upper 90 store (does not include Travel uniform items ordered online).

Purchase of Uniforms
Each player is responsible for purchasing his/her own uniform kit, which consists of navy and white jerseys, shorts, socks and a practice tee. Players may wish to purchase extra shorts, socks and practice tees for use during the week. Though optional, families are encouraged to purchase official WSSL Travel items through Upper 90: backpack, hooded sweatshirt, ball, etc.
At the beginning of each season, the Travel Uniform Manager will ensure that players have access to the Upper 90 website so that they can place orders. Players can also place orders throughout the season to replace lost or outgrown gear. Travel uniform items are generally not kept in stock at the store.
Financial assistance is available for scholarship players. Please contact the Financial Aid Coordinator for more information.
Each player will be assigned a jersey number which he/she will keep from season to season. Jersey numbers are unique across each age group's teams in order to allow for the movement of players between teams without changing numbers.
Coaches and Managers
WSSL will provide one coach's shirt to each coach and assistant coach. Like the player uniforms, coach's shirts are intended to be worn from season to season. Replacement shirts are the responsibility of the coach.
Team managers will be issued 2 extra game jerseys (1 navy and 1 white) for emergencies. Coaches/managers may loan the extra jerseys for a single game, but they should always be retained by the coach/manager and may not be given to a player to keep. These jerseys should be kept by each team from season to season.
A goalie shirt will be issued to each team which opts to receive one. Like extra jerseys, goalie shirts should also be kept season to season.
Replacement of the extra jerseys and goalie shirts will be the responsibility of the team coaches and managers. Exceptions are replacement due to wear and tear, model change, or if the team outgrows them.
WSSL does not issue extra uniform items such as shorts, socks or goalie gloves.
Given the cost of the Travel kits, WSSL does not provide uniforms for Futsal or any other non-WYSL matches. Travel teams may use their WSSL uniforms for such matches so long as all players own or borrow uniforms. WSSL will not furnish Travel uniforms to teams consisting of non-Travel players; those players may purchase kits from Upper 90.
