Note:  When more than one athletic trainer is assigned to the sport, uniforms are to be coordinated.

Inappropriate Attire:  Blue Jeans or corduroy pants, sloppy, torn, baggy pants

POOR WEATHER CONDITIONS:  The athletic training student must be prepared for the various weather conditions and dress appropriately.  Inadequate and poor selection of clothing often prevents the student from performing their duties properly.  Students who fail to dress properly will be asked to go home.


All outdoor clothing must be cared for properly.  The clothing is to be used by members of the athletic training program only and is not to be given to athletes or coaches.  All clothing is to be returned immediately to the closet upon return from practice or competition.  Place the jackets in the closet with the numbers facing out and keep in numerical order.  The use of the clothing is a privilege and that privilege will be revoked for the entire staff should the clothing be damaged, misplaced or stole. Gortex jackets and pants are to be used only when raining or when rain is anticipated. The gortex suits are expensive and not to be used as wind gear.  All jackets must either be worn by the athletic training student or placed in the blue bag until needed.  Athletic training outerwear is not to be left out in the open on benches, in the bleachers or in the back of the gators.


Students are expected to wear dress clothes at indoor events. Attire must be professional in taste, in other words be “acceptable for an job interview”.   Exceptions to this rule are:  Volleyball Tournaments, Indoor Track and Swimming Events.  Athletic Training shirts and pants are acceptable for Volleyball Tournaments and Indoor Track.  Athletic Training shirt and shorts are acceptable for Swimming Events.
