Jersey Guidelines for New and Returning Players

8U/Mite 4

The required jerseys for this level will be determined by the Mite 4 Director.  Following tryouts and the formation of the Mite 4 team(s),  the Mite 4 Director will provide information on the purchase of jerseys.


10U/Squirt, 12U/Pee Wee, 14U/Bantam, and 15U

Players entering their first year at 10U/Squirt or entering into the association at any of these levels are required to purchase a set of game jerseys – Home (White) and Away (Black).  Refer to the jersey number rotation table in the next section for information on choosing your jersey number.   The number assigned will remain with the player throughout their time with RAYHA.

Jersey Care


Proper care of the jerseys is your responsibility and you are responsible for replacement costs due to outgrowing the jersey, damage, loss, theft or misuse. Players needing a replacement jersey, for any of these reasons, can purchase their replacement(s) at registration. Contact the Equipment Director for any replacement purchase needed outside of the registration window.   Players must retain their assigned jersey number.  Game jerseys shall not be worn for practice.


To get the maximum life out of your jerseys follow these simple tips: 


  1. Dry and Store Properly:  Not only is it a bad idea to leave your jersey in your equipment bag, it's unsanitary.  Remove your jersey (and all other equipment for that matter) from your bag as soon as you arrive home from playing to dry and to prevent, or at least limit, bacterial growth.  Air dry your jersey by hanging it up.  Once it's dry, fold it up or hang it in a garment bag (recommended).  
  2.  Washing:   To wash, turn your jersey inside-out and wash it in cold water with mild detergent and air dry. 

Fitting and Sizing - Jerseys and Game Socks


Due to the challenges presented this season and to insure the health and safety of players, parents and board members, RAYHA will not be holding any jersey or game sock try-on sessions.  There are, however, alternative steps that you can take to make sure you select the correct jersey size for your player. 


  1. We encourage you to utilize a sibling’s or a friend's jersey/game sock as a reference. This should be done using a RAYHA or Co-Op jersey/game sock from a past season.   We do encourage you to try to locate a K1 branded jersey/game sock.  While sizing is similar, there might be slight differences between brands.
  2. If you don’t have access to a sibling’s or friend's jersey/game sock for reference, refer to the size charts below.  Remember to have your player wear their chest pad and elbow pads when measuring for the jersey; and their shin guards when measuring for game socks.

Game Sock Sizing


Finding Your Sock Size

You can determine the size you need by measuring the length of your leg.  Use a fabric measuring tape or tape measure to measure the distance between your ankle bone and the middle of your thigh.  If you find that your measurement places you in-between sizes, it is recommended that you choose the larger size.  Remember to account for the size of your player's shin guards when choosing your game sock size.
