Uniforms are required to play.
A uniform consists of a reversible SFC jersey. Home team will wear White. Away team will wear Black.
Also required are black shorts and black or blue socks. Shin guards are required to play and must be worn beneath the socks. Soccer cleats are recommended but not required. Cleats for any other sport, including but not limited to football and baseball are not permitted. Any sporting goods store can help you pick out legal soccer cleats. Players may not wear jewelry (including earrings and watches) or hard plastic hair pieces at any time.
In cold weather.
Players are permitted to wear knit hats and gloves. Players are permitted to wear sweat pants UNDER their shorts. Players can not wear jeans or cut-offs. Sweatshirts are to be worn under the jersey. No jackets or coats or anything with buttons or zippers are permitted. Hoodies are permitted provided the hood is tucked into the jersey. The goalkeeper must follow these rules with the exception of the jersey requirement as they may wear any other "shirt" as long as it does not present a danger to any player and is different in color than the regular jersey. (can not be white or black)

There are only 2 times games may be cancelled due to weather. 1) Lightning 2) Closure of park by the township. If the township thinks the fields could be damaged because they are too wet, they will notify us and we will note that the fields are closed on the website and social media. If there is lightning, we will NOT play. Homecoming park is equipped with a lightning strike detector. In the event the alarm goes off, or lightning is observed, ALL players, coaches, officials, and spectators must seek shelter in their vehicles or under the shelter house until the "all clear" alarm sounds. This will be 30 minutes after the last detected lightning strike. In the event of a prolonged lightning delay, or anticipated delay, the games may be postponed or cancelled at the discretion of the board. In such an event, we have the Sunday of the last week of the season reserved as a rain date. If we can fit makeup games in sooner, we will attempt to do so.
