Announcements and Schedules
We're bringing the "Chill" this week... with temps below freezing!
Students need to have layers, hats and gloves, hand warmers, etc!
Under the uniforms, students may (and should!) wear compression tops/bottoms, such as under-armour. They may (and should!) dress in layers so long as it is completely hidden under the uniform and their movement is not restricted! Hand warmers, jackets, hats, and gloves are also highly encouraged when students are in the stands.
Colorguard should confirm with their instructional staff what is/is not appropriate to wear underneath the uniform.
Students will not be permitted to use the hats, gloves, and scarves from the uniform in the stands at games or competitions; come prepared!
