Hi Folks, and welcome to Strikers 2019 – 2020,

We appreciate your patience as we’ve been building out our 13 teams playing in the NEP this fall, updating all the teams’ rosters, updating the web site, planning equipment and uniform needs, assigning new players' numbers, and much more.  Please carefully read this message to the end.

Uniforms – the Strikers United uniform kit for 2019 – 2020 will not change.  This is true for both the required game uniforms and training uniforms.

If you are a returning player, you will retain your number, and may order replacement or additional garments as you choose.  Please read the directions below for new players if you wish to buy any uniform items.  The deadline for ordering is Friday July 12, 2019.

If you are a new player, your uniform number has been assigned.  You may find your kit number by logging in to your SportsEngine account.  Your team’s roster with uniform numbers listed is on your team’s web page at www.strikersunited.com once you are logged in.  Please check for your uniform number before using the links below.  The deadline for ordering is Friday July 12, 2019.

Once you have your kit number, game jerseys are ordered from WeGotSoccer (WGS), the exclusive online retailer of our competition partner, the Boston Bolts.  You must purchase both the white and the black New Balance game jerseys ($130) from WGS.  New Balance black shorts and black socks are also available from WGS.  Other Bolts’ New Balance garments may be purchased as desired.

Please note that WeGotSoccer’s order lead time is 2 – 3 weeks at the moment.  By mid-July this is expected to increase to 4 – 6 weeks.  Please plan accordingly, Strikers’ first games are the pre-season tournament August 24 & 25.  The deadline for ordering is Friday July 12, 2019.

All orders from WGS should be shipped directly to your home.  Once your order is received, final game jersey customization is done at Strikers’ official supplier, Soccer Stuff, in Acton.  The cost of the application of the Strikers’ Branding at Soccer Stuff is covered by Strikers United.  It is up to you to make arrangements for this service directly with Soccer Stuff.  You can either call ahead, 978-635-1259, or drop your jerseys off at their store, 264 Great Rd, Acton, MA 01720, in the Donelan’s ‘/ Gould’s Plaza, and pick up later.

The Strikers United Training Kit must be purchased from Soccer Stuff.  It consists of a training jersey (neon yellow for girls, neon green for boys), black shorts, and black socks ($63).  Soccer Stuff also has exclusive Strikers’ items and replacement New Balance black shorts and New Balance black socks for sale at the store or online at http://shop.esoccerstuff.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=1854

Please put Sunday August 18 – Wednesday August 21 on your calendar for pre-season team training with coaches from the New England Revolution Academy, Strikers United's coaching partner.  Training will be from 9 AM until noon each day at the Lower Fields at Acton Boxborough Regional High School.  An event will be added to your team's calendar in SportsEngine, and your RSVP is required.

And while you have your calendars out, All Strikers United teams will participate in the NEFC Fall Kick Off tournament August 24 and 25, with the possibility of a few games on Friday the 23rd.  A placeholder event will be added to your team's calendar in SportsEngine, and your RSVP is required.

On the subject of SportsEngine, SE is used extensively by Strikers to schedule and track player attendance at games and practices.  This helps the coaches plan for these events and the management team to monitor the program at large.  Please take a minute to log in to your SportsEngine account, either online or the smart phone app (a free download for your smart phone), to check and verify your account info.  The critical info you should review at a minimum is your e-mail address and phone number.  This will help other parents connect with you for carpooling etc., and so that Strikers has your preferred contact info updated.  Also please check your child(ren)’s date of birth and gender, and add her/his photo, hometown, or anything else you care to share.

Lastly, don’t let your child miss the opportunity to train with the Coaches from the Manchester United Academy in an academy style program starting this Sunday!  For more info; http://events.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=k78w77fab&oeidk=a07egb0se1p17c521d8
