    Team Attire

    UNIFORMS

    The Team uses three (3) sets of uniforms which each skater will purchase new attire or purchase from a past or present member for a reduced rate.

    WARM-UP/TRAVEL

    The warm-up/travel uniform consists of a Team jacket & pant warm-up set, red Team t-shirt, which is to be worn under the jacket and clean, athletic tie tennis shoes appropriate for aerobics. Team uniforms will be ordered when the Teams have been designated.

    Travel and practice attire is only to be worn during team practice and competition events. It is not to be worn during an individual skaters practice, test session or competition events.

    PRACTICE

    The practice uniform is to be worn at all indoor practices both home and away. Team practice dress/attire is determined at the start of the season. All skaters must have the same designated practice attire.

    For all practices, all skaters are required to have clean, polished skates (clean, white-only boot covers may be worn), and, at the skater's option, the SCB sweatshirt or jacket from the warm-up/travel uniform. If applicable, all skaters’ hair must be pulled back off face and/or shoulders in a ponytail.

    Skaters have the option to wear black hand grip gloves or keep hand warmers in zipped pockets and head bands during any Stadium rink practice. The coach has the option to ask the skaters to remove these items during practice if they are interfering with the progress of the team or creating safety issues.
