Uniform Information for Saturday!!!

1. Remember to pack everything you need for a performance in your equipment bag:

  •  Hat box containing your hat, gauntlets and gloves.  Hats must always be brought IN the hat box!
  •  MB shoes and all black crew or knee length socks – no low-cut socks!
  • White shirt (the collar must also be white) with sleeves to wear under your jacket – show shirt is fine.

 2. Wear lightweight gym shorts to have on under your MB pants – your MB shorts are fine.  No jeans/cargo shorts – too bulky!

 3. Bring everything you need to put your hair up into your hat.  Remember NO hair should hang below the uniform collar.  Guys – get a trim if needed.

 4. ALL gentlemen need to be clean-shaven.

 5. No jewelry or visible piercings while in uniform.  Leave it at home so you don’t lose it!  Watches and bracelets may not be visible, but can make it harder to wear the gauntlets so best not to wear them.

 6. If you’ve forgotten anything on game or contest days or have any problems with your uniform, please come see a uniform mom so we can fix it or get you what you need.  We don’t bring extras of everything to away events so try to see us before we leave East if possible.


Please review the “Wearing the Uniform” section in the MB handbook – page 8!


Thank you!
