Referee Official shirts (OSI) at a discount for ENY members
As you know, we are in a transition period for uniform shirts. While the new style shirts have been supplied to referees taking the entry-level courses since the beginning of this year, veteran referees have been on their own. (Basic colors, YELLOW and GREEN, not black.)
Eastern New York has made a deal with Team Sports, an official distributor of Official Sports International (OSI). You can purchase the new style shirts as offered by OSI at a discount (approximately 18-19%) off of the OSI posted price by ordering directly from them online. Just go to: www.enyrefereestore.com and place your order for as many new shirts you wish to purchase. They are the genuine OSI shirts.
A few things to be aware of:
1. some items are out of stock, just as they are with OSI and other suppliers
2. you will be notified within three days that your order is being shipped or otherwise (a part of your purchase) is back-ordered.
3. You are responsible for shipping, for the most part under $10 for the entire order.
4. You may order from other suppliers, such as Score or Final Decision, both of whom carry the new shirts produced elsewhere; we went with OSI shirts based on feedback from the veteran referees to whom we spoke.
5. You can purchase and include in your order other items as shown on the page; the deal is focused on shirts.
6. Neither ENY nor any of our organizations will be involved in your purchase, nor gets any financial benefit from this arrangement.
