A FEW IMPORTANT NOTES:
In preparation for our 2017 Box Lacrosse season, the FLA has been actively going through our equipment inventory and identifying what needs to be replaced. We have several sets of jerseys that need to be replaced and are seeking potential sponsors to assist us with our jersey replacement program.
How much does it cost?
$500 per set
Who picks out the jersey?
The FLA sources the jerseys from our regular suppliers and will select the jersey design and colours such that they do not overlap with other jerseys in the division.
Can my company logo be added?
Yes. Send us your company name and/or logo and we will work with the supplier to place the logo in a prominent spot on the jersey.
How long do the jerseys last?
We typically strive for 6-10 years out of a set of jerseys. Your logo will remain on the jerseys for the life of the set.
Can I make sure my child's team get a set that I sponsor?
We will do our best to make sure this happens. Let us know what division your child plays in and we will coordinate this with the Divisional coordinator.
Who do I contact?
If interested, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
