UNIFORM STANDARDS

Wearing the uniform of the Marching Golden Flashes is a unique privilege that is earned only by your commitment, hard work and talent. When you put it on, you become an icon and a visual representation of the university, the School of Music, and the band as a whole. Therefore, it is expected that you hold your speech, actions, and demeanor to the highest standard anytime the uniform is on. When in doubt about whether or not something would be appropriate or not while in uniform, use the “Disney Rule” which essentially means that every thing you do in uniform is part of the performance, even when you think no one else is looking. Violations of the uniform standard may result in grade penalties, suspension, or even dismissal from the Marching Golden Flashes.




  • Uniforms are to be fully on or fully off. At no time should you ever have jackets hanging on your shoulders, improper shoes, etc. This includes any time before or after a game, exhibition performance, parade, etc. For games during warm months, the Band Director may instruct the band to remove their jackets in the stands.

  • Wear the uniform to the specifications that are established by the Uniform Standard.

  • All uniforms must fit correctly. Proper pant length is the responsibility of the individual member.

  • Socks must be black and reach at least mid-calf. Ankle socks or socks with patterns are NOT ALLOWED.

  • All parts of the uniform MUST be clean, neatly pressed and wrinkle-free. It is YOUR responsibility to dry clean your uniform during the season. Dryel is not an appropriate substitute!

  • No alcohol consumption, smoking, gum chewing, or profanity is allowed by band members in uniform. This applies to any clothing identifiable as the Kent State Marching Golden Flashes. Remember the “Disney Rule”!

  • Wet uniforms should be hung up to dry.

  • Uniforms should be hung up between performances (the trunk of your car is not an acceptable place to store your uniform!)

  • Black marching shoes are required. If you already have possession of a pair of black marching shoes in good condition, you will not be required to purchase a new pair. Staff members must approve any pair of black marching shoes brought from an outside source. Shoes should be polished and clean at all times.

  • Gloves must be clean, white and with no holes (except woodwinds who may cut off the fingertips).

  • Uniform t-shirts, hats and beanies must be clean and neat. No faded, dingy, or dirty shirts will be permitted. If yours does not fall under acceptable guidelines, you will need to purchase a new one.

  • There will be at least one assigned professional cleaning midway through the season. Band members are REQUIRED to have uniforms cleaned during this time.

  • Only official KSUMGF t-shirts may be worn under the uniform coats.

  • Jeans, cargo pants, or any rough material may not be worn underneath the uniform as it may cause damage to the uniform. Appropriate uniform apparel includes the following: athletic shorts, athletic or yoga pants, leggings or tights, short and long sleeved t-shirts (no collar), UnderArmour. All top apparel worn underneath a KSUMGF uniform is limited to navy blue ONLY. Bottom apparel should be dark colors.

  • Only official KSUMGF ball caps or beanies may be worn with the uniform. Headbands are permitted but must be navy blue ONLY and no more than two-inches wide. Handkerchiefs or “do rags” are NOT permitted.

  • Sunglasses may be worn in the stands only but must come off for any field performances.

  • Only tasteful, small jewelry items may be worn with the uniform. If it is visually noticeable from more than a few feet away, it should be taken off or covered up with band-aids.

  • Hair should be worn up inside the hat. No hair should be hanging out or touch the collar. Braids are fine as long as the braids can be tucked into the hat. Hair color should be natural or professionally colored (no spray-colored blue or gold hair).

  • Facial hair must be well groomed.

  • Visible tattoos must be covered.

  • No face paint is allowed. Students may wear only “officially licensed” temporary tattoos and only one per side of face.

  • Band members are to remain in full uniform at all times. In the case of extremely hot weather, permission may be granted by the director to remove the band jacket. Students are not permitted to do so until permission is granted. Any student not wearing the official band t-shirt will not be permitted to remove his/her jacket during the game.


PEP RALLY UNIFORM

The uniform for pep rallies and similar performances includes the official KSUMGF band uniform and ball cap (or beanie in cold weather). All members are required to wear the ball cap during these performances.


SUMMER UNIFORM

In some more informal performances, the KSUMGF will perform in the official summer uniform which consists of the official KSUMGF ball cap, KSUMGF shorts, and the official KSUMGF uniform t-shirt.

COMMITTEES

The Marching Golden Flashes are a well-oiled machine. The reason for this is attributed to the dedication of organizations like Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma as well as the student leadership structure. By adopting the philosophy of “servant leadership”, the members of this band strive to keep all parts oiled and gunk-free. One of the ways this is made manifest is through the committee structure within the band. All members are required to serve on at least ONE committee throughout the course of the academic year.
