I am just wondering if there is a rule in place about how high the hem can be on our "slacks" that we have to wear for post season tournaments. Does anyone have any clarification?

Only a recommendation Joe. You can wear a Thong with Cowboy Boots if you want.

We'd better get this clarified. From what I've been told, shorts, hats, etc.. will not be allowed in the corner.

Joe, At least you can wear flip flops with your thong & capri length pants.

I know you guys are goofing around but the idea of coaches looking respectable isn't all that silly. Go to a meet where for instance Danvers is wrestling and you will see how it should be. Respectable looking people get more respect

Hats off to the guys who dress to kill like James Bond. As a PE teacher and Athletic Director, I find it hard to believe that wearing a polo shirt and some khaki shorts are not considered appropriate attire to spend multiple days in a 1,000 degree gym with a bunch of men. And Ray, just for you I will lose the Mandals and wear some stilettos but you have to promise to do the "Snow Shovel Boogie" for us up at Mt. Greylock on Valentine's Day!

If a coach goes out and spends a ton of money to look great in the corner (suit, shoes, rolex), does he get to use those expenses as a tax write off?

Tom, I talked to my tax guy... he says you can write it off.

OK, I didn't talk to a tax guy, but I did talk to our MIAA rep, and yes, for now, the dress code is just a recommendation. Though I think word may be sent to AD's or principals about those not dressed appropriately.

Wearing a pair of khakis is a small price to pay to improve the professionalism and respectability of our sport.

Most school systems have a coaches handbook that already spell out the dress requirement.

Regarding the New "Coaches Dress Code" Policy I think it's terrible that this rule only applies to new coaches. The old guys should have to do it too.

This a joke? Of course it applies to everyone.

Yup, a joke. But apparently not a good one. Oh well, I tried.

I'm a big fan of coaches dressing up, especially for the finals of the post season events. I don't agree it should be mandatory, but I appreciate the coaches who do it.

The sport of Wrestling requires sacrifice. I don't understand why this is such a huge issue. We can't expect to be respected if we aren't willing to give something. We wore shirts and ties when I went to Brentwood; and that aint Brentwood, California. Coaches said shirts and ties and we did it. It was shared decision making at its best.
