Each player must wear:

  • the issued shirt (tucked in), shorts and socks (pulled up) (sweat pants may be allowed);
  • shin guards covered by socks;
  • regulation soccer shoes, gym shoes or sneakers (with or without rubber cleats). Soccer shoes are strongly recommended for all practices and games. Metal cleats and “toe cleats” are not allowed. “Baseball shoes” with “toe cleats” may be used only if the “toe cleat” has been removed and there are no sharp edges.

Players may not wear anything that is dangerous to any player. This includes, but is not limited to, splints, casts, metal bracelets, rings, earrings, wristwatches and hair barrettes.

Long hair must be tied back (rubber band or other soft retainer) Prescription eyeglasses should be secured. Sunglasses are not permitted. Only goalkeepers may wear “soft” knee or elbow pads. Goalkeepers may also wear “warm-up” pants.

The uniform should be worn only for regularly scheduled games.
