Waterloo United U10 Girls Grassroots started this petition to Waterloo United Board of Directors

As passionate families to Waterloo United, we have chosen our club and are loyal.  As of last year, many of our players and coaches purchased the required uniform in addition to optional "add-ons" including warm-up suits and rain-suits and backpacks.

This season, the Waterloo United club leadership has selected a new supplier and have made it mandatory for players to purchase all of the items all over again (even though some gear from last year's kits haven't been worn many times, if at all, and many parents purchased the gear as parents do, with growing children in mind, thus a size bigger so it will last a season or 2).  This investment was made as proud and loyal families to Waterloo United as players want to "fly the flag" of the club.

The youth players learned to raise their funds for additional items in order to value the gear they proudly wanted to wear for then, and into the future. What are we teaching them when not only 6 months ago, these items were new and they were valued, and now this investment is easily thrown away? This is teaching them that waste is ok and to always seek the newest is the norm. 

We recommend the reasonable and happy medium solution whereby players are asked to purchase their game-day kits of shirts, shorts, socks and optional tracksuits and backpacks, in a cost-effective manner.
