Questions about your Fall 2024 DYF uniform size?

DYF has partnered with Not Just Soccer to make jersey samples available for players to try on at their convenience. 

Sample FLAG AND TACKLE jerseys are available at their Southlake store located at 611 E Southlake Blvd (near Peace, Love, & Donuts).  Pop in to try on jerseys and then submit your information via the QR code to the right.  The staff at Not Just Soccer is also trained to help properly fit a variety of gear they carry including helmets, pads, and pants.

Please keep in mind:

  • Flag uniforms (Kinder - 2nd) are looser fitting than tackle uniforms (3rd - 6th) which should be very tight.
  • The information submitted on this form will supersede the sizing information submitted in registration.

IMPORTANT - Jerseys are custom-ordered!

Reprints not due to a manufacturer error (like new size requests) will cost each player $55 per jersey and take several weeks to arrive.  DYF is not financially responsible for reorders if the wrong size is ordered by parents.  Please take the opportunity to try the jerseys on and confirm you are entering the correct size. Thank you!
