SPIRIT WEAR Jerseys are now up on Cashless! There was a lot of interest and we have found a great option for our students. They will be delivered in January 2017. This is a unique item to our school and is sure to make a splash on the ice or in the halls. Our PW royal blue, grey and white jersey is made by Kobe, one of the premier hockey suppliers in Canada. This specific jersey is made in Canada and is a mid-weight 100% polyester pro-knit fabric. Measurement details are in the attachment. Your child will be able to put his/her name on the back as well as the number of his/her choice. You will contact you via email to get these important details once Cashless closes. We need your support on this item, and we hope it will fit your child's needs.
