Uniforms

The official SOSF uniform for most sports (see exceptions below) are:

  • Athletes should wear athletic shoes/ tennis shoes (no street shoes). 

  • Black/vegas gold warm-up (jacket and pants)

  • Black/vegas gold jersey and black shorts

NOTE: IF (and only if) the black shorts do not fit the athlete properly, they can wear their own personal black shorts.  They must be solid black with no other colors or big logos and they must be a long athletic type short.  No short shorts

 

An SOSF uniform (jersey, sorts, and warm-up) will be provided to each athlete when participating in a sport.

  • The uniform is handed out one to two weeks prior to the area games.

  • When laundering the uniform between the area and state events; wash in cold water and do not dry the jersey.  Just hang up to dry.  The shorts can be put in the dryer.

  • After the athlete’s last game or event at the State games, the athletes turn in the uniform to their coach.  The uniform volunteer will collect from the coaches.

NOTE: Loaner uniforms are not collected back between Basketball and Spring Games.

  • The uniforms are to be used for SOSD events only (not for practices or for personal use).

 

It is very important to note that no athlete is required to purchase a uniform in order to participate in any SOSF event. But, some athletes choose to purchase the uniform. 

  • The black & vegas gold jersey and shorts are sold at cost to athletes; the price is $40.00. 

    • ​If no new uniform (never worn) is available, an athlete can choose to purchase a used uniform for $20.00
  • ​The black & vegas gold warm-up can also be purchased at cost for $75.00
  • If you wish to purchase a uniform, please click on the Uniform Purchase Form link.
