We provide a positive, competitive yet inclusive, player oriented atmosphere where players of all ages learn not only the skills and strategies of the game, but the importance of team work, sportsmanship, camaraderie and honor.
Many people have been asking me when the uniforms are coming in and my standard response has been I am not sure, but it should be soon. I regretfully inform you that the uniforms as we know them, may never be coming in. Unfortunately, the company we went through for the uniforms, All-Star Custom Screen Printing (and the owner) have stopped communicating with me after being paid for them. They were an established vendor for us and stepped in last year when our previous uniform company unexpectedly went out of business. They performed without issue and gave us a great deal on our current uniforms. I am not sure what is going on with them now.
To be left without uniforms at this point is shocking and not exactly what the lacrosse board was looking forward to dealing with. In the event that All-Star Custom Screen Printing does not contact me by tomorrow, we are scrambling to get uniforms ordered and attempting to recover the lost uniform money. We are trying to come up with uniform alternatives for the varsity and youth levels (fortunately this did not affect the girls program). I will keep you informed with the progress of the uniform issue.
In addition to this, last week I emailed a link to the Stanwood Fan Wear website as a way to buy shirts and such. That website was supported by All-Star Custom Screen Printing and we have taken the link down from our homepage. If you have purchased something from that website since I gave out the link, I would encourage you to contact your bank or credit card company and attempt to recover that money. PLEASE DO NOT USE THAT SITE TO ORDER ANYTHING.
I, along with the rest of the board am sorry for the inconvenience. I hope we are able to get past this and continue on with a great season.
On a lighter note, I watched all the games this last Saturday and all of your teams looked great. Not only did they play well, but they played with honor and great sportsmanship. I was impressed.
