More Spring 2019 Updates!!!


Speaking of Secondaries…
Once every few years, we are unable to order matching uniform parts from our current supplier, which is why everyone needed to purchase new Secondary Uniforms (complete) at the beginning of Fall 2018.  We also switched to a new marching “tennis style” shoe for The Pride (more comfort and support for those long game-day).  Vets should order replacements if needed and Rookies will need to order the complete set.
