Kit and Registration FAQ
Q - Why are we changing our kit?
A – The Adidas kit we’ve been using for the last several seasons is no longer available, so we have taken the opportunity to align to the senior club who play in the same kit.
Q – I bought kit last year assuming it would last for a couple of seasons – did I waste my money?
A – The current kit (which was subsidised by the club) can continue to be used for training sessions and other football activities; hopefully your child will get plenty of use from it!
Q – I notice the new kit is short-sleeved, is there a long-sleeved option?
A – The new kit is short-sleeved in order to allow for flexibility between weather conditions – we received feedback that long-sleeved was too hot in the latter part of the season. We have observed many children play in an undershirt too, so they should continue this approach. Note the undershirt must be plain black. You can order one via our club shop (coming soon!) or purchase one elsewhere.
Q – I don’t want / can’t afford to purchase kit again this season
A – Don’t worry - for this season, the playing kit (shirt, shorts and socks) is being provided 100% at no cost to you, due to the generosity of our sponsors and donors.
Q – Is the registration fee going up this year?
A – No. As long as you register before July 1 2021, the registration fee is being held at the same level for the fourth season in a row. There will be a fee increase from July 1. Together with the free kit, our football has never been better value!
Q – How do I know what size to choose?
A – You can see the size chart here. This kit is “semi-fitted” (tapered at the waist) so if you think your child might be between sizes, likely better to go for the larger size (assuming they’re still growing too!)
Q – Children will need new kit for matches at the start of the season – how will we ensure that?
A – Part of the change in kit manufacturer and supplier is to improve reliability of supply. We recommend registering in May and June in order to ensure kit is available at the start of the season. There will also be a small amount of pool kit that each age group coach will have access to in the even you’re not able to register your child in May or June.
Q – How do I request a specific number on the back of the shirt?
A – Numbers are supplied by your age group coach / administrator, so please speak with them about assignments. We are looking to get the vast majority of kit ordered in May and June, so speak to your age group promptly if you have a specific request!
Q - How do I request a specific name on the back of the shirt?
A – The player’s surname will be added to the back of the shirt, so please complete the registration form carefully! What you enter on the form will be added to the shirt!
Q – What happened to the option to order a tracksuit as part of registration?
A – Tracksuits and a bunch of other LKYFC gear is available direct from our supplier via our club shop (coming soon!), please order direct from there.
Q – I have more than one child that would like to join the club. Do I need to pay the full fee for each?
A – No! There is a 50% sibling discount for your second (and subsequent) children. Simply register your oldest child at the full rate and then use the appropriate discount code on the registration page for each of the other children.
