    My team generally does a new uniform every other year (they're self-funded and the girls keep them.)

    However, we stay with the same warm up so they can re-use it.

    No reason to look at them in this catalog.

    Yet, here I sit.

    Has anyone just skipped getting warmup pants and just used leggings instead? My high school did that after my freshman year and I ripped the crotch in my warmups 3 times in one season (toe touches did me dirty.)

    If your school did go this route, did you order them in bulk? Was it on an individual basis? Did you stick with black, or what color did you use?

    I was offered a head coach position and want to see about updating some things while being budget friendly.

    We are out where its a bit too cold to just do leggings.

    But we are planning on ordering some team leggings in grey or black this season that say "county cheer" or whatevs on em.
    We plan to order through eastbay, there they can set up individual or team order.

    For non required team gear like this that we order mid season, we do a team order (we do for everything), then have parents/families pay individually to the team account via the district pay portal. Makes it easy on us

    Thank you! I will look into that. I was looking at some of the leggings Varsity sells in their catalog ($50+ for a pair of plain leggings and $65+ for pants) just does not seem doable on a budget.

    We are doing leggings this year. We are getting the plain black GK ones that are $18. If you order by May 31st they are also 25% off, so even cheaper which we took advantage of. Those are the cheapest option, but they have some mesh and other versions too.

    Do you have a link to this? Everything I'm finding on GK is around the $45 mark for cropped leggings

    Yea and then you'll have to pay shipping too. Not a smart purchase.

    And I think why you are finding the higher prices, similar to Eastbay's site, they offer team pricing/discounts when working with a sales rep. Def find a rep to assist with each company, should make life easier for placing orders

    If you create a gym/team account, all stock items are cheaper than the listed retail price. Contact a rep and get an account set up so you can see the discounted prices. I find their stock stuff to be the cheapest around and they have tons of discounts/promos for the summer.

    I don’t know if GTM has leggings, but they’re my go to for just about everything. I keep one uniform from Varsity because I’ve heard if we make ESPN at NHSCC, they won’t show us if we aren’t in varsity uniforms. So, it’s our finals uniform for sure.

    Sort of agree, but I’ve only heard that as a rumor. Honestly, I somewhat agree with Varsity on this one. The ESPN broadcast is a frill. Their competition, their rules, their endorsements, etc.

    If nationals was brought to you by Nike, I wouldn’t expect to see a big Reebok logo on the mats.

    I forget that GTM is owned by Champion now, so much more access to practicewear type items.
