Marching Band Uniforms

The new show uniforms are in and are being hemmed to fit students properly. These uniforms, by design, are much more form fitting than ones they have had in the past. Because of that, the clothing worn underneath must be form fitting as well, compression type material is suggested and requested.

The loose-fitting shorts & t-shirts that they wear with game uniforms will not work for show uniforms.
