Hewlett Soccer shop will be at the second Recert on Nov 21 and will have uniforms and more Velcro’s for your 2014 badge.
Last year, the process took less than 1 hour on average and if ALL follow the above procedure, it should take no more time this year! Please understand that this is set up to make the registration process as quick for all of us! We thank you in advance for adhering to the above procedure.
