Beginning in Fall 2012, VSA has selected XARA as its uniform provider. Though this does mean converting the entire club to a new uniform package, there are many attractive features making XARA the right choice for our club in the long run. This long-term agreement has a "no rebuy" requirement, thus replacement uniforms can be ordered when your child grows out of the uniform vice a mandated rebuy at two years. Additionally XARA has committed to manufacture our uniform design as long as we wish to buy it, thus there will be no style change every couple of years forcing rebuys. Lastly, the combination of the above features with improved quality and durability as well as a greatly reduced price bodes well for a long-standing and prosperous relationship.
The new VSA uniform retailer is The Soccer Post, located in Chantilly, VA. The Soccer Post offers a closer to home environment with a friendly and helpful staff able to serve our uniform needs. They have provided fitting tents integrated into our tryouts to ensure all of our players are properly fitted and satisfied with the uniform they will receive. They have also provided a modern web ordering interface that will allow each parent to order directly for their child and each manager to monitor and facilitate the process seamlessly. Included in the online catalog as well as at the store are additional spiritwear items. Soccer Post offers benefits to the club on additional purchases beyond the required uniform kit (more information will follow on this).
Travel Teams will be able to purchase the uniforms once each team manager has loaded their rostered players into the ordering system. Once set up, each parent will receive an email from the system with their account and temporary password. All uniform orders for Fall 2012 need to be placed in the system by 25 June 2012. Questions about the ordering process can be directed to VSA’s uniform coordinator Larry Bennett.
