Fan Jerseys

As a significant part of the fundraising for the team, Fan Jerseys, with a custom name and number are being sold at $100 per jersey, see image above.  These jerseys are identical to the uniform jersey and made and delivered concurrently with the uniform.


The available sizes are: 3XS-XS, S, M, L, XL – 5XL


To place an order for one or more Fan Jerseys, pay $100 per jersey TBD.

In the payment notes, include Size, Color (blue or white), Jersey Name, Jersey Number and an email address where you can be reached.

E.g: Large, Blue, Hiram, #33, rod@hiram.com


Fundraising Raffle

Each player will be assigned a set of numbers (“tickets”) that can be sold to family and friends. The revenue will go to the player selling the tickets. The raffle winners will be awarded gifts given by the team.  This is the first time that the Women’s U19 is doing this.  In the past the Women’s National Team has successfully executed this concept with a significant income to the players.


Sponsors

We are actively looking for sponsors to subsidize the cost of participation. We have one Platinum, one Silver and many Bronze spots for sale on the uniform, see sample blue/white uniform image with logos from an old event below.

The National Anthem of the United States of America

Thousands of people around the World will be watching our matches, both in person and online. We line up in the center of the field before each match and sing the national anthem.

The melody can be found here. Please listen carefully, practice and enjoy the tune!

The verse below is the first verse from the complete version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” showing spelling and punctuation from Francis Scott Key’s manuscript in the Maryland Historical Society collection.

O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bomb bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave?
