    So we finally get to buy new uniforms, but I have ran into opposition from administration. Our school colors are scarlet red and grey. I came up with some uniforms that were mostly red and black with silver trim and the answer is NO. It has to be predominantly red and grey with only black or white accent trim. HELP!! I hate going with all red again but can't for the life of me find a grey uniform I like. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm one stressed out coach right now.

    Grey is tough!!! Is it a light grey? I wonder if you could do predominantly grey w/ red and then just use the black as a trim. I feel for you!

    Umm yeah it's just grey. LOL Right now our uniforms have silver braiding on it, but I'm just not sure what to do. So frustrated, why can't we just use white? haha

    Ask uni companies to draw something up. My varsity rep kicks butt and she totally just draws me things for fun :)

    I've been working with my Varisty rep and I absolutely love her, but it's like something is still not clicking. She's trying options with ones we liked before when grey was less dominant, but they're not really working. I would love for her to give me some ideas instead of me trying to fish for them.

    Have you looked at some of the Ohio State unis? They have at least one mostly grey uni that I can think of

    I just found a picture of the grey uni. It's not bad, better than options I've seen. Thanks for the suggestion!

    What about a uniform style like the old UCA staff uniforms?

    Maybe not the exact uniform, just one with the big panels on the side, so it would be easy to incorporate a lot of grey on the sides where the light blue is without over powering it. Or you could even make it predominantly grey with red on the sides.
    Just a thought!

    this was one of the best gray and red uniforms I've seen in high school. They had shiny gray bows :)

    This is the uniform we ended up getting. We are getting both red and white bodysuits to match. Thanks for all the help. The girls at first weren't crazy about the idea of grey, and honestly neither was I, but I think it looks classic and sharp! : )

    It actually looks really nice!! Our colors are navy and vegas gold (looks like baby poop) so at the send of the day, we are using navy or white when using metallic accents, but that was so hard!! Props to you for a nice uni!
