UNIFORMS

We are going to have New Balance uniforms! Returners do not need to buy new jerseys, unless sizing changes or player doesn’t have the color needed. 16u Cruz players will need NAVY, WHITE & GOLD uniform items. All uniforms and fan gear will be purchased online through BSN. We will set up times for players to come try on the sizing kit. Uniform costs are separate from team fees.

 

COMPENSATE AND ADJUST

Sundodgers families must have the ability to compensate and adjust. Additional Tournaments may be added to future schedule, if a majority of the team is available.

 

RECRUITING

We will clearly lay out the steps of the process and help girls confidently take on each step. Players will have someone who has walked the path and has been through the recruiting process to help them along the journey. Sundodgers have former college athletes leading them, all who have personal connections to schools across the country. We will do everything in our power to help our players reach their goals! *See thesundodgers.com for our list of alumni!
