Looking for a better alternative to cleaning jerseys in a washing machine.

I have many sports jerseys (mostly NFL, hockey and soccer), that I wear somewhat regularly. I wear the NFL and hockey ones "casually" (when watching games on the weekends, etc), however, I have 5 or 6 soccer jerseys that I wear while working out (running, at the gym, etc), as they offer moisture wicking abilities, etc.
I used to wash all of my jerseys in the washing machine (inside out, on delicate cycle, hang to dry, etc), but lately I have been noticing that some of the letters and crests of the non-stitched numbers or crests are starting to peel off. This has got me thinking that I probably should hand wash.
Any suggestions for the best way to hand wash a jersey? Tips, techniques, detergent, etc?
