2017-18 H.S. Uniform Fittings

WHO HAS TO FIT FOR UNIFORMS?
ALL students enrolled in a 9th-12th grade concert band class are assigned school-owned uniforms for performances. As all concert band students are required to perform for all home football games, they are assigned a marching uniform. All students are also assigned a concert uniform; a tux for the gentlemen and a top with pants for the ladies. To make this happen, students must attend a fitting time scheduled by UBPC Uniform Directors.
 
WHEN ARE FITTINGS?
Fitting dates & times for the 2017-18 school year were held in late July through mid-August. We are now down to our "Last Chance" fitting opportunities. Any band student who has not yet fit for their uniforms must come to one of these fittings: Friday, August 25th & Thursday, August 31st
 
Arrive no earlier than 5pm, but no later than 6:30pm. Check-in at the marked table upon arrive and you will receive instructions from there. Please allow up to 90 minutes to complete your fitting as we expect long lines. Anyone who does not check in for their fitting by 6:30pm, may not have time to complete their fitting that evening.
 
WHERE ARE FITTINGS?
Fittings are held in and around the uniform room, located in the band hallway at the high school.
 
WHAT TO BRING/WEAR TO A UNIFORM FITTING?
* Clothes that you can change out of easily. No big bulky clothes.  
* Please wear sliders for the fitting. 
* Please bring or wear your MTX marching shoes.
* If you do not have your marching shoes yet, please wear or bring socks to try on shoes. 
 
WHAT ARE SLIDERS? 
Sliders are another name for compression shorts and can be a bike short as well. They are made of polyester and spandex and are close fitting to the leg. They are worn under the marching uniform bib/pants for easy changing and for a smooth looking leg with no bunching or wrinkles. You can find these at your local Walmart or favorite sports and outdoor clothing store. There are men's and women's styles. SOLID BLACK ONLY, please! 
 
WHERE AND HOW DO I GET MARCHING SHOES? 
Marching shoes are part of the required member gear for all band students grades 9-12. Please refer to the member gear page for more information about marching shoes and other required member attire & accessories. 
 
DO I NEED ANYTHING ELSE? 
All Union H.S Band & Guard students are required to own and wear certain shoes, attire, and accessories for use at performances during the Fall Semester (football games and pep assemblies) as well as the Spring Semester (basketball games). More info here.
 
HOW CAN I HELP WITH FITTINGS? 
It takes an army of volunteers to fit, size, dress, undress, mend, & wash all the uniform pieces that students wear. If you are interested in helping with uniforms, please note your interest in helping through your student's Charms account, and/or email us.
