Uniforms & Equipment
Ensuring Uniform consistency amongst all coaches, players & teams
The purpose of this document is to communicate to all officials a program to be followed by all club members and ensure consistency amongst all teams. Only "club issued and approved" gear may be worn when representing the CMFSC. Players and coaches [and managers - not on field] are not permitted to wear any clothing other than that described in the following articles.
The primary colours for CMFSC are Royal Blue and Black.
Club gear and logo are only to be used on board approved chosen brand and supplier.
The club home jersey is blue and black stripes and must be worn whenever there is not a conflict with the opposing team. This is our primary uniform and brand.
Absolutely nothing is to be attached to uniforms and club specific attire unless instructed by the club Board of Directors. Club specific attire is defined
- Club uniforms, shorts & socks
- Club warm up shirts
- Club track suits
- Club back packs / bags
Teams or individuals found not to be adhering to the Uniform policy will be required to correct, dispose and replace the offending gear, at their own expense, immediately upon notification.
All outerwear/training gear (track suits, tops, pants, jackets, training shirts, shorts & socks) must follow the primary color combination. Each season, the club/board will determine the styles that will be available.
For the alternate uniforms, the club/board will determine the style of the white alternates on an annual basis.
The Club's Equipment Manager assigns uniforms.
If a coach, manager or divisional coordinator is unsuccessful in obtaining equipment from a player, the equipment manager is to be notified so that the Board of Directors can deal with these individuals.
Coaches Kit program
In 2012, we introduced a program where CMFSC will supply a kit for all coaches from MSL and below (two kits distributed, per team). The intent is for all coaches to wear the kit during games and training so that our colours are well presented on a consistent basis. Our program consists of an automatic renewal every four years. Coaches, if registered as a volunteer in Power Up, will get an reminder upon the four year renewal date. They will then be responsible to confirm their information for a new kit.
What is provided is as follows:
- U8 to Adult -Training Jacket, training pants and rain jacket
- Initiation Academy - Polo top and rain jacket
- Coaches moving from IA U7 will be given the training jacket and pants
- Coordinators - Training top and rain jacket
All new coaches for the season will be required to set up a profile on Power Up (if you don't have one already) and have an up to date Criminal Record Check. Information regarding ordering will come out from the Equipment Coordinator in the beginning of each season. Following is this years flyer. Please note that styles may vary due to inventory.
Uniform Kit program
With the training jacket and blue/black jersey being the core of the brand, we want to focus on those components. The intent is to have SPL lead the change in the cycle. The cycle is planned for a two year run, based on the Adidas introductions, we are currently using a Club member designed jacket for the Spring of 2018 and will release a new design in 2019.
The uniform style will be changed on an annual basis starting with the SPL teams.

Individual team officials (coaches/managers) are responsible for picking up the uniforms and equipment assigned to that team prior to the commencement of the season. Team officials must provide a post-dated cheque for $150, dated September 1st of the following year, as a deposit for the equipment and will be responsible for returning all of the equipment at the end of the season.
Each team will be issued a blue lock key, which will allow access to the field equipment sheds and boxes. Nets, corner flags, liners and in some cases portable goal posts are supplied in these locked up areas for team contests. Each coach is responsible for returning this equipment to the storage area after their game.
