U8 

Ball gloves are required.

A fielding mask is mandatory for all players.

Uniform

The zone will provide the players jerseys for the season.

The zone each year will have a uniform night at which time everyone comes down, picks out their jerseys. The jersey deposit (to cover any possible loss or damage to the jersey) must be paid online at the time of registration. 

Any player that fails to return their uniform or returns it in a damaged condition will forfeit this deposit.

Please wash your uniform in cold water only. DO NOT PLACE IT IN THE DRYER, you should hang your uniform to dry (this will help to avoid damaging the numbers).

You are strongly encouraged to go down to Al Anderson’s to try on the ball pants and undershirt to ensure proper sizing.  Go into the store just past the ball gloves and turn left to get to the “team apparel” section.

All orders placed by March 30, 2020 are expected to be complete and ready for pick up on or before May 1, 2020 at Al Anderson’s Source for Sports (an email will be sent when your order is ready for pick up).

The deadline for online orders is March 30, 2020 in order to receive your items in time for the season start.

If you are concerned that the glove may be too small as the player’s hand has grown, please ask your coach or take it to Al Anderson’s and ask their staff.

Other lasers branded clothing is available through Al Anderson’s; however, the Lasers zone is also sourcing logoed apparel through another vendor. It is recommended that if you are wanting to purchase Lasers apparel that you wait until you know if the team your child is on will be ordering any apparel as a team. Parents, siblings, and other family members will also have an opportunity to order apparel at that time, or it can be ordered through the Lasers Zone chosen vendor.

It is OPTIONAL to have:

  • ball cleats (highly recommended at U12 and above)

  • batting gloves

  • equipment bag

It is recommended that each player bring the following equipment to games and practices depending on the weather: jacket, mittens, water bottle, sun screen, insect repellent, sun glasses.

Hat: The zone will not be offering hats for the 2020 season.  This is due to the requirements of facemasks.  T-shirts will be given out in place of hats.

Bat: You don’t need to purchase a bat, those are supplied for all teams.  U14 and U16 players may wish to purchase a bat for when they go to batting cages on their own time, however we don’t recommend purchasing bats for U12 players – they are still learning what size and weight they prefer, and this changes as they grow.  For U12  players it’s preferred that they borrow a bat from the coach as needed. If you are considering buying a bat for your child, please visit the Softball Canada website to ensure the bat meets the minimum requirements.
