UNIFORMS

Players will need to 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.

TRAVEL

Recruiting tourneys are “stay to play” tourneys. Meaning we have to stay in certain hotels they choose, or the team can pay a fine to stay somewhere else. This means all players must stay in team hotel. While on the road, it is a business trip. We like to model it after a college road series. We hold team meetings, practices, or team bonding to fill any free time if game schedules permit. 


ORPHANS = Any players traveling WITHOUT a parent. They share a room and will be chaperoned by the coaches to and from all games, practices, hotels, restaurants, airports, etc. They will share cost of room with all other orphans. This is one-way families help keep travel cost down. Coaches will send out their flight schedule ASAP so orphans can get onto the coach flight and be with an adult the full trip. 
 

COMPENSATE AND ADJUST: Sundodgers families have to have the ability to compensate and adjust. Later tourneys are determined by qualifying status. Whether we qualify or not will determine future tourney schedule. Saturday practices are determined by weather. STAY ON YOUR TOES! 

RECRUITING:

Coaches 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. Coaches trust our opinion on players because they have seen us play and know we understand the game and what it takes to play at the next level. We will do everything in our power to help our players reach their goals! *See thesundodgers.com for our list of alumni!
