Question Patches

How many of wear patches on your uniform?

In Utah, we don't wear any and I like it that way. I spent a couple of seasons in Arizona and they wear two. I used to work in a NAIA league and we never wore patches, but we wore them during the league tournament. The tourney was held in MT and apparently, patches are worn there too. I kept kidding the other guys in the tourney that they looked like NASCAR drivers with all of the crap on their shirts. They weren't amused, but I was.

My association wears, generally, two patches. IAABO and the US Flag.

We wear a flag, but I guess I never considered it a patch...even though it is one.

In Washington State, high school officials wear the WOA patch on the left chest.

For men's community college games, stripes with no patch. Wide stripe shirt OK if all crew members wear it.

In Missouri we are required to wear the MSHSAA state patch on the left sleeve.

Association patches in the area vary.

College is unadorned or flag on left sleeve.

No patches in SC, though we have one for our jackets.

Back in Kansas, the KSHSAA patch on the sleeve was the norm - it was also allowed on the chest though I never saw anyone with it there.

In Illinois it is only required that we wear the IHSA Patch on our left arm. The US Flag is optional and most officials choose not to wear them in basketball. In football it is hard to not find many veterans that do not have the US flag. Mainly because the September 11 event took place in the middle of football season and that just became a trend almost across the board.

Peace

TN requires the TSSAA patch on the left chest. Local associations dictate flag or no flag. Our association has flag centered 1 inch below collar on back of jersey.

Actually in AZ we don't have patches, the state logo and Pursuing Victory with Honor are embroidered on the shirts.

The only officials wearing patches are the ones that wouldn't replace their old shirts and would rather spend $9 on two ugly patches, and look out-of-place, than spend $27 on the shirts.

Oregon: All HS officials in all associations were the OSAA patch on their left chest and, optionally, a flag on the sleeve.

Ontario:
  • High School
    • IAABO officials can wear the IAABO patch on the left breast
    • Some local boards have a crest to be worn on, usually, the right or left sleeve
  • Club Basketball
    • No need for IAABO since club ball is now using FIBA rules
    • Some local boards have a crest to be worn on, usually, the right or left sleeve
  • College and University
    • No crests permitted, AFAIK
