The cost of borrowing this is included in the term fee, however if the allocated shirt is not returned to the Team Manager at the end of the season you will be charged for a replacement shirt.
Team Managers will be expected to collect the team's shirts, wash them and return them as a set to the office 7-10 days after the last game.

Children can wear their own shorts, blue would be preferred but that’s not essential. The children play in bare feet, no shoes.
