Team Shirts

Postby neerja.shah » September 11th, 2019, 2:05 pm

Does anybody have any good ideas for their team shirt? I was thinking maybe full sleeves cause it can get cold here...

Full sleeves or hoodies are especially suitable for lab competitors who need long sleeves for safety.

I have the opposite recommendation. Short sleeves, because it gets hot. If you're cold, you can always wear a long-sleeved shirt under your team t-shirt. Our team did long sleeves one year, and never will again.

For chemistry events, a lab coat over a t-shirt is fine.

(I'm a bit surprised that the Chem Lab rules don't specify proper shoes. Sandals or open-topped shoes worn with pantyhose or stockings meet the Chem Lab rules, but are a bad idea in a chemistry lab.)

I agree. We had black, long-sleeved T-shirts last season and wearing those at Nats was not fun.

That's interesting because for the invitationals that my school normally attends, the AC often gets put full blast and stuff so we resorted to using long sleeves for our team shirts.

You could also consider just getting both. That's what my team does (t-shirt and hoodie), and it works great. If your team doesn't have the budget, or it's too much of a hassle, or something else, I'd say short-sleeves for the team shirt. If you need long sleeves, just wear a hoodie over it when you need to or wear another shirt under it, like knightmoves said.

My team does like a mini-contest for designs for our shirts and hoodies and the winner gets a free shirt/hoodie. And then if we like the design we can buy the shirt/hoodie with our own money so its has little impact on the team's budget. It's cold where I live during the winter so long-sleeved shirts are like a must.

My team has the seniors design the shirts, and everybody can decide if they want a long-sleeved or short-sleeved shirt. I find the long-sleeved shirts much more convenient.

Our team does short sleeved shirts, and I've never had a problem with that. It really depends on the weather in your area though, and what conditions are usually like around competitions.

Alternatively: have people choose whether they want long or short sleeve shirts. You all still have the same design, regardless of the sleeve length.
