Indiana Fire Academy seeks to provide our membership with access to information that allows each family the ability to easily find information and resources. Below you can find links to information, as well as documents that are being shared to provide our parent team volunteers with the tools they need to successfully support each players, families and coaches for our teams.
2023-2024 UNIFORM ORDERING
New players should expect an email directly from Soccer.com at the end of June to order uniform kit pieces. If you have not received your players ordering email by this date contact email@example.com.
It is important to order as soon as the email is received to reach the goal of order fulfillment by early August.
2023-2024 UNIFORM ORDERING
2023-2024 will be the second year of a two-year uniform cycle for IFA. Returning players do not need to order a new kit but are able to order all items if new sizing or additional pieces are needed. Players will order their uniforms through Soccer.com, pay on that website and have uniforms shipped directly to your home. If you know of a non-returning IFA player and are purchasing or using their old gear you must message us so we can confirm there is not a number conflict in your age group. Message firstname.lastname@example.org (mailto:email@example.com) with your player information and kit details.
We carefully number our uniforms to avoid number conflicts the following year, but it can still happen. If an existing player moves teams and a number conflict is created one player is required to order a new uniform.
This determination is made using the following criteria.
Number Conflict Resolution order:
1. Was an IFA player the previous year.
2. Was a member of the same team the previous year.
IFA does not hold a uniform fitting night. Soccer.com does a great job of visually showing its apparel sizing online. Simply click the items sizing chart link or view the items details.
Ordering instructions will be received directly from Soccer.com.
Families will order and pay for their uniforms through our vendor soccer.com and they will be shipped directly to your home.
Only players in age groups 8U to 19U who are in the Youth or Travel Programs will order uniforms (if needed). All players on MLSNext teams or ECNL will be contacted by their directors on the uniform process.
If your player needs to order gear and has not received an email from Soccer.com by July 8, check your spam folder, check your child's GotSport profile email then message firstname.lastname@example.org (mailto:email@example.com)
for a link that is specific to your player.
No goalkeeper pieces are required for 8U-10U players.
If the club Directors of Coaching identified your child as a full-time goalkeeper, the goalkeeper kit will load as the primary kit for your player and you may add any optional field pieces.
If your child was incorrectly identified as a full-time goalkeeper, you will be able to alter the package to fit your child's needs as a dual field player/part-time goalkeeper by using the optional menu items.
Only players in age groups 8U to 19U who are in the Youth or Travel Programs will order uniforms (if needed). All players on the Developmental Academy team or ECNL will be be contacted by their age group directors on the uniform process.
Note – adidas runs their Goalkeeper kits on a one-year cycle. A returning IFA player will not see the same kit as last year. Any new IFA goalkeeper or returning IFA goalkeeper should order as soon as possible as stock in certain sizes is often low toward the end of the year.
NOTE: Indiana Fire Academy requires every family to volunteer eleven (11) to twelve (12) hours for each player. All families with a player awarded an Indiana Fire Academy scholarship are required to volunteer a minimum of eighteen (18) hours for each player.
Volunteer opportunities happen throughout the season and will be communicated via Sign Up Genius.
