Halifax Dunbrack Soccer Club is excited to announce that starting this Summer Season, we are partnering with Cleve’s to supply our members with the club’s new Adidas soccer kit (shorts, socks and training shirt) and Adidas game-day jersey, which will be theirs to keep! This will apply to all players in the following programs for this upcoming season:

 

  • Skill Centre Program
  • Community Program
  • Development Program

After you complete the registration process, please click on the ORDER link to place your order for your soccer kit and jersey. The online site also has a selection of additional items available for purchase and includes a size chart to make ordering easy. The first order period is from March 7-20, 2022. Orders will be bundled by team at the Cleve’s in Dartmouth and will be picked up by the team manager and distributed to players at their practice. 

 

All players in the above programs MUST order the applicable “bundle” so they have a kit and jersey for the summer season. The club will no longer hand out game-day jerseys for league games.

 

While you wait for your order to be ready, please do your best to utilize the kit that you already have for any pre-season training.
