This year EVERYONE will need to order new uniforms. As with all soccer clubs and brands, uniform kits only last two years and our styles expired last season. We will be starting a new uniform kit that will last the next two years. NOS Santos has partnered with soccer.com to provide our Nike brand uniforms. This email contains important uniform information.
When and how do we order our uniforms?
Uniform ordering will start the first week of June. Once the online ordering store is open, you will receive a personalized email link from soccer.com to purchase your player’s uniforms with their designated jersey number.
What items do I need to order?
Every player needs to order a new home jersey (white), away jersey (navy), and at least two training jerseys (yellow). Training jerseys are required for all practices. All players must order at least two pairs of navy shorts. We use the same shorts for our home, away, and training uniform. Each player should have at least two pairs of navy socks and one pair of white socks. It is required that every player has a navy Santos backpack. Finally, every player needs a navy Nike Santos sweatshirt that comes with their jersey number on the sleeve. (The generic Santos sweatshirts from a couple years ago will no longer be used).
1 white home jersey
1 navy away jersey
2+ yellow training jersey
2+ navy shorts
2+ navy socks
1+ white socks
1 navy backpack
1 navy Nike sweatshirt with jersey number on sleeve
Are there optional items?
There are optional navy pants for cooler weather. Parents also have the option of ordering a variety of spirit gear for themselves.
How do I know my child’s size for ordering?
1. Use the online size guide from soccer.com when you are ordering.
2. Come to the final uniform sizing night on Tuesday, May 31st from 6:30-8:30pm in the classroom at Santos Soccer Complex. Samples will not be tried on, but you can hold them up to your player to determine sizing.
What do I need to order if I have a returning Santos player?
Returning players MUST order the new home and away jerseys. They MUST also order the new shorts. The new shorts are different from last year.
Returning players do not need to order new training jerseys and socks if they have enough, but we strongly recommend replacing these items regularly.
Returning players do not need to get a new backpack. Both styles of backpacks will continue for this season.
If a returning player already has the navy Nike sweatshirt with the jersey number on the sleeve they do not need to order a new sweatshirt. (The generic Santos sweatshirts from a couple years ago are no longer being used.)
How long will my order take to arrive?
We have several strategies in place with soccer.com to increase the promptness of the Santos orders. The earlier in the summer you order, the quicker you will receive your order. Right now we are hoping for 2-3 weeks from ordering to delivery. Their busiest time will be mid to late summer and turn around times will increase.
How long will these uniforms be used?
These uniforms will last for 2 years. If your player is between sizes and still growing, we recommend sizing up.
Are there new keeper uniforms?
There are new keeper uniforms this year. However, a keeper is allowed to use last year’s keeper uniform if they choose. All Santos keepers must have official Santos keeper gear–either last year’s keeper uniform or this year’s keeper uniform.
Can we still use shorts from the old kit?
No, all players need to wear the new short style for both games and training.
How do I get my player’s name and jersey number on their backpack?
Soccer.com does not offer personalization on the backpacks. However, we feel personalization is important to avoid misplaced items and confusion. Backpack personalization will be done locally. To ensure the team looks the same, managers will coordinate the personalization when we come back after summer break.
