Buying Guide For Cheerleader Uniforms

Aug 17, 2007
Every 4 years, the alumni board of the high school where Mrs. Jenson came from elects a batch of officers. Having worked in civic projects in the past, the members voted this woman to be its president.

The school had a heritage of winning the all state cheerleading computation for as long as anyone can remember. Given that the uniforms are one of the things judges look at, Mrs. Jenson decided to improve on it as one of the priority programs for the coming school year.

There was just one problem. Mrs. Jenson didnt know where to begin. Luckily, two members of the alumni were part of the cheerleading team in high school and were willing to help out make this plan come to life.

There are many types of cheerleading uniforms. The tops of some are long sleeved while others are sleeveless. Some schools prefer to wear skirts for better movement than the pants.

The first thing Mrs. Jenson did was talk with the members of the cheerleading team. The insights given as well as the styles used in the past were compared together in order to come out with a design that has never been used before.

The next step was to check out the stores that make these uniforms. Some can be found online while others in the neighborhood gave out catalogs. In both cases, a minimum order was required before any deal was signed and production can begin.

For anyone who is in the same situation like Mrs. Jenson, the friends gave a list of questions to serve as a buying guide when talking to a prospective supplier.

1. Will there be an additional charge if the client wishes to have longer skirts made? This is necessary for those who are tall in the team.

2. What type of material is used in the uniforms? Since basketball and football games go on throughout the school year, it will be a good idea to have uniforms made of 100% polyester since these are able to last longer than those made of cotton.

3. Are the uniforms treated with some chemical to make this stain proof? The colors of these sometimes fade after a few washes and it will be best if these look as good as new every time the team has a show to perform.

4. Many cheerleading uniforms hug to the body. Can the supplier do this at the same time provide flexibility to those wearing the suits?

5. The designs of many of these outfits are very similar. The only difference is perhaps the color. Will the individual charge extra for letterings or patches to reveal the schools name or logo?

6. If the school decides to order from this establishment, will there be an additional discount given in the future if another transaction happens?

7. Will the supplier go to the school to get the measurement of those in the team or will a list of specs just be brought to the owners office?

8. Should any problem occur with the uniforms, can replacements or alterations needed be given free of charge?

Surely, the supplier will be able to answer all these questions. The only way to check if the person can deliver is by having a sample made. Should this pass the requirements set by the board and the costs are reasonable, a deal can be made.

The organizer should realize that not all companies can give this in the way that was planned. Some will only be able to make the top or the bottom while the other details have to be outsourced elsewhere.

The school held the tryouts in the summer. Of more than 40 who applied, only 24 were accepted. Since the minimum requirement was 28, the school decided to have 4 more made for those in the training pool just in case substitutions were needed.

After 3 months of planning, Mrs. Jenson accomplished the task of getting new uniforms for the schools cheerleading team. The board thanked the women who were involved in the project that was also well received by everyone in campus.

By sticking to a guide when reaching out to suppliers, people like Mrs. Jenson and others will be able buy the outfits for those in the cheerleading team.
