YOUR ACTION IS REQUIRED (traveling players only)
ACTION REQUIRED FOR ALL TRAVELING PLAYERS PRIOR TO SEPTEMBER 20!!
Good afternoon EVHA,
As noted in the season update email, you will need to order a new home jersey for this season. This email contains information regarding this switch, as well as details on what will be required to receive your new jersey.
WHY ARE WE CHANGING JERSEYS?
Bauer has moved away from the custom team jersey business and is no longer able/willing to produce our grey home jersey. We reviewed jersey samples from several vendors, but no vender was able to perfectly match our colors. The EVHA Board reviewed our options and determined the best course of action would be to replace all home grey jerseys with a color that will never go away: white.
We reviewed jersey quality from several manufactures and decided to move forward with Champro and are moving into a sublimated jersey versus a stitched jersey like our old Bauer ones.
WHY DO I NEED TO RE-FIT and RE-ORDER?
Because of sizing differences between the Bauer and Champro, we will need to have everyone re-sized to ensure proper fit.
WHAT ABOUT AWAY/BLUE JERSEYS?
We have adequate stock of the blue jerseys to fill orders for this year. We will be able to fill all orders placed this spring, as well as any new orders that come in this fall from new players coming into EVHA. As our stock runs out, we will be switching to K1 who is able to produce the same blue jersey we have now under their brand. Some players will be receiving the K1 Jersey this year.
WHAT ABOUT MY SPRING ORDER?
If you placed an order for replacement jerseys in the spring, we will refund the cost of the home jersey. Because of the logistics of this change, the board decided all returning players will receive a new home jersey for free. Because any new player coming into EVHA or new to traveling hockey has not had the cost of a jersey, they are considered "net-new" and will still be required to pay for their jersey.
WHERE DO I ORDER?
Westwood Sports will be hosting an online store where you can place your sizing order. Jerseys will be completed and ready for the start of the season. Once Jerseys have been completed you will be contacted for pick up at Westwood.
WHEN IS ALL OF THIS HAPPENING?
Because of the tight ordering deadline, to ensure we receive the new jerseys prior the team's first games/picture night in November we need to complete this process quickly:
TRY ON TIMES: Westwood Sports will have all jersey sample sizes in their Apple Valley Store starting on Friday 9/14. We need to make sure everyone gets in and fitted before Thursday 9/20.
Please bring your shoulder pads and elbow pads to Westwood during business hours to try on the jersey.
Please note these are sample jerseys so do not get hung up on what they look like as they are only used for fitting sessions.
ORDERING DEADLINE: New sizes must be submitted to the link below no later than Thursday September 20th at 9pm.
