Q: With the restructuring of Seacoast United clubs located in MA, do current players need to purchase new uniforms?
A: No. We are currently in the middle of a 2-year uniform cycle and have taken this into consideration when putting plans in place for SUSC MA. The current volt kit will remain the “away” uniform for Seacoast United Massachusetts during the 2019/2020 season. The striped kits for North Shore/Benfica/Storm will no longer be used. To offset the cost of a new “home” uniform, the black training kit from the 2018/19 season will now become the “home” uniform for 2019/20. The 2019/20 training kit for all Seacoast United clubs will be a royal jersey/royal short, royal socks. A new warmup will be introduced for the upcoming season as well, consisting of a dark gray soccer hoodie and black pants. These warmups will be in line from fall 2019 through spring 2021.
Existing players from Seacoast United North Shore, Seacoast United Benfica, and Seacoast United Storm can keep their current jersey numbers. Should an existing player wish to be assigned a different number (ordering new shirts, outgrew current uniform etc), they should contact their club registrar to request one.
New players will be assigned a jersey number by their club registrar. Please wait for your assigned number before ordering your uniform.
Q: I'm a returning player who participated on a Seacoast United club team during the 2018/19 season, will I keep the same number for 2019/20?
A: Yes. When the club begins a new 2-year uniform cycle, new numbers are issued across the club to all players. The home/away jerseys are valid for the 2018-2020 seasons (2-year cycle). Any new players who are joining Seacoast United club teams for the 2019/20 season will be assigned a jersey number that is not currently in use by another player from the same birth year.
Q: I'm a new player joining Seacoast United for the 2019/20 season. What uniform pieces do I need?
A: As a new player joining the club for 2019/20, you will need the home/away kits for the club you've been selected for, as well as the training kit/warmup package. Please do not order your uniform packages until you have been assigned a jersey number by your club registrar. The Warmup Top & Pant are new as of 2019/20 and will remain current for the 2020/21 season.
Q: What is the current uniform cycle? How long are my uniforms used for?
A: The Home/Away kits run on a 2 year cycle and are valid from fall 2018 through spring 2020 (the 2018/19 season and the 2019/20 season). Training Kits are valid for 1 year. The 2019/20 training kit consists of a royal blue jersey, royal blue shorts, and royal blue socks for all Seacoast United clubs. The warmup top and pant are current for 2 years, beginning fall 2019 through spring of 2021, consisting of a gray (anthracite) training hoody and black pants. The club alternates the life cycle of the game kits and warmups to help spread out the costs related to uniform purchases for the families.
Numbers assigned by the club are only valid during the 2018-2020 uniform cycle and will be completely reassigned beginning June 2020 for the 2020/21 season.
Q: I am changing from one Seacoast United club to another (for example, Storm to Hampton). Do I keep my jersey number?
A: Yes, in an effort to keep costs down for families we are allowing players who move between Seacoast United clubs to keep their jersey number. However, if you wish to be assigned a new number, or have outgrown your existing uniform and would like to avoid number conflicts on the new order, please reach out to the club registrar.
Note: Players moving between SUSC clubs will be required to purchase the home uniform for their new team, as home uniforms are different depending on which SUSC location you play for. Away uniform and training kits are consistent across all locations.
Q: Why are the training jerseys numbered?
A: The training jerseys are numbered to match the game kits in an effort to give teams a "3rd kit" option during the season for tournaments and league games. This also gives players from the various clubs 2 consistent uniforms in the event of player movement between rosters/locations.
