Apparel Policy 2017-18 (Barrie AAA Zone)

PrintApparel Policy 2017-18


Our image and branding as the Barrie Colts AAA Hockey Association is very important to us and one that players and families take pride in.  In order for teams to remain consistent our 'Rules of Operation' outline the dress code for all teams from Novice to Midget as described below. 

We feel it is important for us as an Association to have a consistent appearance when our teams are at games and tournaments.  It is for this reason that certain items need to be purchased from our exclusive Barrie Colts supplier – Pro Star Sports Excellence.  As a reminder, Pro Star has the rights to use the Barrie Colts "Charlie Horse" logo. 

Track Suits - If your team is purchasing track suits they must be ordered through Pro Star as per the attached price list. Again, track suits are not mandatory but if teams are deciding to purchase them, the team must wear the approved suit from Pro Star.

Hockey Pants or Shells with the Colts stripe, Soft Shell jackets and Hockey Bags – These items are mandatory for each player as per our rules of operation. Players are expected to wear soft shells jackets to all games, whether home or away.

Jerseys - The Association has decided to eliminate vanity jerseys for the 2017/2018 season.  For those players who wore a vanity number last season, they have been grandfathered for this season.  Please note however, they will not be able to purchase a new jersey.  If their jersey does not fit them, they must pick an Association numbered jersey. 

If any team wishes to order any additional items, you need approval from the Association before doing so.

If you have any questions, please contact Pauline Chiodo, Director of Equipment: [email protected]
