The Basics


2022 Update: Like many other industries, clothing is currently experiencing supply chain issues. It's taking longer than normal to get shirts, and our printer can't always get the shirts we order. You may receive a different color than you requested. The printer will try to choose a color close to what you requested.


Every individual on a team's roster is provided with a shirt - regardless of the status you assign them. Do not invite anyone unless you're certain he or she is playing on your team. If you pay for extra shirts, make sure the number of players on your roster matches the total number of shirts you want, as you will not receive more shirts than players listed on your roster unless you note in the "Comments" section during registration which extra sizes you want. Similarly, if you have fewer players on your roster than the default shirt quantity, you may still only receive the number of shirts for players listed on your roster, unless you note which other sizes you want.


Shirts are generally only ordered once per season. A player must be on the roster on the shirt deadline date provided to captains via e-mail in order to receieve a shirt. Please do not pay attention to any language on the website about shirt size change deadlines, shirt cutoff deadlines, or anything else. We don't use this but do have to enter a date in that field.


Returning Teams


Returning teams may use shirts from previous seasons. The captain must select the same color from the same sport. The captain can indicate in the "Comments" box during registration that everyone already has a shirt. If this isn't done, the team is subject to the Default Shirt Order listed below. If you only need a few new shirts, you must specify which sizes you want in the "Comments" section during registration or you will receive an entire batch of new shirts. We apply shirt credits against the team balance when shirts are ordered, so don't pay your team balance until after the shirt order date that will be provided to you in the captain email.


You will receive a credit for every shirt you don't order. For example, if you only need three new football shirts, you will be credited for the seven you don't order. Credits are usually applied shortly after the shirt order date communicated to captains via email. If you request to use shirts from previous seasons and then don't wear them, MSSC may order shirts for your team and charge you for them.


Regular Shirts


These are 100% cotton shirts and are the default option. "Small" is the smallest size available for cotton shirts. Please see the color grid above for available choices. You can order white shirts and tie dye them if you want.


"Dri-Fit" Shirts

Dri-fit shirts are 100% polyester and are lighter, more breathable, and more flexible than the standard cotton shirt. If you select these for your team, you will be charged an extra $3.69 per shirt. PLEASE NOTE: These shirts tend to run larger than the regular cotton shirts and do not shrink. Some females think the "Small" dri-fit shirts are still too big, so we also have "Extra Small" as an option. Please see the color grid above for available choices.


The additional $3.69 per shirt will be added to your team balance at some point before all outstanding balances are charged. We recommend not paying your team balance immediately upon or shortly after registration if you order dri-fit shirts, as there will be another charge added later for these shirts.


Broomball Shirts


Broomball shirts are long-sleeve, 100% cotton shirts. See the color grid above for available choices.


Volleyball Shirts


MSSC may offer tank tops as an option for volleyball only. They are currently not being offered for the Fall and Winter 2022/2023 seasons because our printers have had trouble getting them. They cost more than a regular shirt, so an additional $4 per shirt will be added to your team balance. They are only available in cotton and are a “men’s cut.” The actual cut may vary slightly from what is pictured above, as colors may come from different suppliers. Selecting these is all or nothing. See above for a sample of what these look like and the available colors.


Default Shirt Orders (a.k.a. what happens if you don't follow our rules)


A shirt will be ordered for each player on your roster. You will be charged for extra shirts (anything over the default quantities listed below). Charges for extra shirts will be added to your team balance if your roster exceeds the default quantity and you did not correctly specify the number of extra shirts your team needs. If you do not have a normal roster entered, MSSC will order shirts at its discretion in the default quantity for the sport. Default shirt and jersey quantities:


Broomball: 10

Dodgeball: 10

Flag Football: 10

Kickball and Softball: 15

Volleyball: 8


All players are expected to wear their league shirts every game so the refs can tell teams apart and sponsor bars can identify you as being associated with our leagues. Teams in organized sports at every level from tee ball through the majors wear jerseys or uniforms of some kind and our leagues are no different. If we see a high percentage of players on your team without shirts, we will assume you need them going forward.


Extra Shirts and Shirt Credits


Teams who already have shirts or jerseys from a prior season may reuse them and request a credit for any shirts they do not order. The credit is $4.22 per short-sleeved shirt and $7.91 per long-sleeved shirt at the time of this posting (and subject to change). Extra shirts are $9 each for standard cotton t-shirts. Additional long sleeve shirts are $12 each (also subject to change). The extra cost covers many things: the possibility that a team wins the championship and would need extra champs shirts, as well as administrative time needed to manually update several things on the back end.


Champs Shirts


MSSC Champs shirts are offered to all teams who win the highest skill division of any segmented league or a league that was not able to be segemented into separate divsions. Champs shirts vary by color and design each season, and teams do not have a choice in the color of the champs shirts. They are generally printed on a cotton/poly blend shirt. Champs shirts must be picked up in person at an MSSC league unless the captain agrees to pay to have them mailed. Captains who request champs shirts but do not pick them up within two months of completion will be charged for the shirts and may forfeit the right to receive them altogether.
