St Albans Playing Kit and Branded Attire
St Albans HC playing kit and branded attire is available to order during a number of three-day ‘ordering windows’ throughout the season. Our kit is designed and manufactured by Tsunami who are based in Hong Kong. To keep costs down, most of the clothing is made to order and delivered to a central location in St Albans for onward distribution.
Our contractual arrangement with Tsunami is that they supply kit to the club on an exclusive basis. Therefore, any kit that we wish to order must be through Tsunami. Members cannot arrange to have kit produced by any other provider. If you wish to arrange for a particular product for your team or a particular event, please discuss it with Becky Turner, our CEO.
How to order
The order windows are published on the website with a link to the shop, which is managed by our supplier, Tsunami. The link is only open when the ordering window is open. It is extremely easy to order your kit.
When the shop is closed, it's still possible to browse the range of kit on offer using the media gallery on this website - click here.
The club pre-purchases some items of playing kit (shirts, shorts/skorts, socks) which is held in stock by Tsunami. This kit is delivered to the UK approximately ten days after the ordering window has closed.
Items that are not available from stock, including all off-pitch/branded attire will be made to order and delivery to the UK will be approximately six weeks after the ordering window has closed.
Delivery of kit
When the kit has arrived, you will receive an email from the club, confirming that your order is ready for collection. You will be given a collection number and details on how to arrange collection. Collection times are extremely flexible and it is very easy to pick up your orders.
Please note that Tsunami apply a Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ) on newly launched products. If these quantities are not met orders may be held, and the ordering window extended, or the orders carried over into the next window. If this does occur and your specific order is affected, you will be notified. For all other items there is no MOQ.

Club Colours for men, women and youth players:
Home: tangerine shirt, navy shorts/skorts, tangerine socks
Away: white shirt, navy shorts/skorts, white socks
Shirt numbers and allocation:
Senior section: All members playing adult hockey are required by the leagues to have an individual player number.
Youth section: Any members aged 12+ who are likely to play senior hockey should have a player number on their shirt.
For youth players normally only a home shirt will be required unless they are over 13 and playing adult hockey as well.
Your player number is allocated by Tsunami at the time of placing your order.
If you are a new senior member or a youth member who's moving into the senior teams, please order your shirt using Option 2 - yet to be issued Back number (stock item). The next free number will then be allocated to you, printed on your shirt and sent to you as a stock item.
If you have a shirt number and wish to order a new shirt you will need to inform Tsunami during the order process and they will manufacture a shirt for you. This will therefore take six weeks.
Please ensure your shirt number is added to your Pitchero membership details. If you have forgotten your shirt number please contact the membership secretary.
If you would like to try sample sizes of the playing kit, please contact Becky Turner or compare kit sizes with other players. We do not have samples of hoodies or tracksuit bottoms; however, size guides are available on the website for reference.
