Uniform Tips for Football Games and Competitions
  • Hats (shakos) and gloves will be assigned at the beginning of the season and should be kept at the school.

  • Hats and plumes:

    • Hats are assigned by numbers (found inside the hat and on the hatbox). Hat assignment lists will be posted in the band room.

    • Students should return the hat boxes (with gloves inside) to the correct rack after games and competitions.

    • DO NOT store food or water in the hat box.

Here are a few more pointers to get ready for the game and competition:

  • What to wear to games or competition: Most students wear their show shirt with shorts or leggings and change into their full uniform at the school before football games or competitions.

  • Students should not eat or drink anything but water once in uniform.

  • Hair and jewelry: All students must wear long hair off of their neck/collar for competitions, meaning hair is worn up in the shako/hat. NO jewelry is allowed during competition-this includes watches, earrings, rings, and bracelets. If items can be seen when you play your instrument, please remove them.


If you’re interested in helping before or after games and competitions please email the Uniform Coordinators at fhsbuniforms@gmail.com. No special skills required!
