It’s important that you note the following for each distribution: 

·         BRING YOUR CHILD TO THE FITTING.  If they absolutely cannot attend then we ask that you bring a t-shirt and pair of shorts that your child can currently fit and we will size them that way.

·         Please be able to provide the name of your coach and the grade your player is participating in before you approach the table for pickup.

·         In an effort to get everyone in and out in a timely manner, we are unable to honor specific number requests. You will be provided a choice of a few numbers to select from.

·         There will not be any coach’s equipment available unless you have already made arrangements with Imer Argueta our equipment director.

 

Check our website www.gainesvillebasketball.org for the distribution dates for the remaining divisions. Please forward any questions regarding uniforms or coach’s equipment to equipment@gainesvillebasketball.org.

Regards,
