The only exception is a quarter-sized logo such as the polo symbol that is on white polo shirts.
Cross-dressing (boys dressing as girls or girls dressing as boys) is never allowed.
Dress-up outfits must connect to each day’s theme; Spirit Week is NOT an excuse to wear just anything.All normal dress code rules regarding modesty (no visible underwear, no exposed midriff, no cleavage, proper length of skirts and shorts, etc.) and safety (chains, pins, gang insignia/colors, etc.) will be enforced.
Unless a logo is a direct part of an outfit (example: a Disney or super hero logo or picture) – logos are not allowed. The only logos allowed on plain white shirts during the All-for-All Competition on Thursday are small quarter-sized logos such as the polo symbol on polo shirts.
Hats appropriate to the theme are only allowed on Super Hero/Disney day (Friday) or Retro Day (Monday)
Any infractions of the above rules will result in suspension from the practices and/or All-for-All Competition in addition to normal dress code violation consequences.
