10 pairs of white socks - really?

Post by Blank77 on 04/06/13, 12:34 pm

Maybe I am in the minority, but our soccer house has tons of socks, but no where near this 10 pairs of WHITE socks needed for ODP next week. 10 pairs, sure with some black, blue, or reds mixed in, but who has 20 white socks? Besides the 5 black shorts, which my DD or BB hasn't been on a team that uses black shorts in awhile, but I can get that - black shorts can be worn anywhere - but what do you do with 20 white socks when you aren't playing soccer?

Just venting about idea dropping $50-$100 on 10 pairs of white socks?

I took 6 pair. Try walmart in the men's department. They have a 3 or 6 pack of starter brand white socks for $8

My DD can't wear the thick ones, she has blister issues and has to go with an inner sock and a tight/thin soccer sock over it or it causes issues. Best deal I can find on legit white soccer socks is at soccer corner for around $5 a pair.

As an older player who participated in many levels of ODP, a girl will use every single pair of socks. Almost none of the players do laundry while at camp.....and the "team managers" do not have time to take a large amount of clothing to the laundry. They do the uniforms only.

Training is done 2-3 times a day, and it is hot. Players need to change their socks for each session. So, count up the training sessions at camp. Even at 2 sessions a day, that is 10 pairs. Games are held in the evenings, and managers will wash the game uniforms and socks. Players are held responsible for training clothes, and that laundry is not the responsibility of the manage.

Take at least 10 pairs of white socks.

Well, ideally, 20...but the blister socks are really pricey so she will have to make due with less.

Solution: Pick the sock up from where it dropped the day before, smell it, if it doesn't turn your stomach wear it. This will cut the required number by half.

Or you could make her an off the grid portable washing machine with a plunger and paint bucket. She could wash her socks each night and have fresh ones the next day. Smile

This isn't true. The chaperones washed every evening for each girl, including her socks and undergarments. I know because I was one of them last summer and did it. Black permanent marker, put their ODP jersey # on the bottom of each sock, shorts, underwear, bra, and etc. Get a lingerie bag/laundry bag (usually about $1 at walmart)....it zips and is made of mesh; the girls put their items worn that day in that and they zip it up and the chaperone throws it in the wash, every now and then it comes unzipped so that's the reason for the marker. This was OU camp and not Alabama. Just in case anyone is wondering or worried.

DD was able to turn in her whites and darks in separate bags for wash. One wash is more than enough to get the girls through the week!

Alabama camp is four days. They could make it through without a wash, but we will encourage my DD to turn in her wash in the middle of the week just in case.

My question is who would be willing to open a soccer bag filled with 10 pairs of dirty socks? My DD's bag smells like she hid a body in it after a three-game day in July. I can't imagine what it would smell like after an entire week. lol
