Compulsory Team Kit

Two sets of playing uniforms (one Navy home kit and one White away kit). Each set consists of one jersey and one shorts. Jerseys are customised with players surname. Cost is £70.00 for both Home and Away kit.

One Warm up t-shirt customised with players Surname. Cost is £15.

Reversible training uniform to be worn at all training sessions. One set consists of one jersey and one shorts. Minimum is one set, however additional sets can be purchased. Cost is £35 per set.

T-shirt to be worn to all away games. Cost is £11.00 per T shirt.

Tracksuit to be worn to all away games. One tracksuit includes one top and one bottoms. Cost is £50.00 per tracksuit.

We operate the following policies regarding kit for all squads:

  • Each player must purchase two sets of playing uniforms and one warm up t-shirt. Playing uniform jerseys are customised with the players surname with each player being allocated a playing number. Playing uniforms remain with the players throughout their entire career with London United, unless a change in size forces the purchase of a new uniform. As an example, it is perfectly reasonable to expect that a player starting his career with United at the U16 level will only need 2 sets of uniforms. However, players starting their career at the age of 12 or younger will certainly be required to purchase larger uniforms as they grow.
  • Players without correct training uniforms will be not allowed to participate in fixtures or training sessions
  • Players are required to wear tracksuits and t-shirts while attending home games and travelling to away games (Tracksuit excluding U12 players).

 

International Competitions

We aim to keep costs as low as possible, however all costs associated with International Competition are covered by the players.

The Club will participate in EYBL [European Youth Basketball League] in the following age categories: U14 and U20.
Participation in EYBL competition includes a minimum of two trips abroad, with a third depending on qualification to the play off stage of the tournament.
Exact costs of the participation will be announced as soon as the organisers confirm all details of our participation.

As a guide, we expect the cost of participation for players involved in EYBL competition to be as follows:
-One off registration fee of £235 which covers the cost of accommodation and food while abroad for both trips.
-Costs of the flights for each trip on average at £120 for each trip (return flight).
All other foreign trips will be subject to individual arrangements which will be communicated to the players with several month’s notice. Payment in full needs to be made no later than 6 weeks prior to trip departure.
