    Coaching Attire?

    I have seen countless travel coaches and some high school coaches wearing hats at their basketball games?

    Do you think high schools should have a coaching dress code for all of their staff? I have seen jeans, hoodies, sweatpants and hats?


    What are your thoughts

    Travel coaches are different.....they are weekend warriors. I don't think it is a big deal for them to dress down. Would seem over the top if they dressed up? I think high school coaches should be held to a little higher standard.....not necessarily shirt and tie every night.....but a nice polo and pants should be the norm.

    Travel coaches are whatever goes as long as it's not inappropriate. High school coaches should dress a little better, IMO.

    HS coach should never wear a hat in a regular season game. If we are talking summer then I think it is different.

    As far as travel coaches, you never know what they may have on.

    Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind?

    And on the bench, coach Ron Everhart prays for his sight to be restored.

    Hats worn indoors was once a no-no from an etiquette standpoint. That rule has since gone the way of the carburetor. Still see no need for anyone coaching in a gym to have a hat on during a "game", but okay.

    Hate the jeans look. My man, Jim Leon, rocked them for years, but it's a bad look when coaching anything other than bowling.

    In actual AAU sanctioned events, they have a dress code, and they enforce it.

    My comment on this thread is that if a coach is making it about them by standing out and taking attention away from their kids, then their motives should be questioned. Kinda why I love Bobby Huggins, could care less what he wears, he wants to be comfortable and win.

    I dont care what they wear ( short of a Speedo maybe) as long as they are teaching the kids the fundamentals of the game and are upstanding people.
