Recently, a few questions have been submitted in regards to the use of the alternate uniform:

What happens when your kids cross the border and wrestle against out-of-state teams? Would they go back to the traditional singlets? What occurs when outsiders come into the Commonwealth?

Should teams travel out-of-state for competition, it is advised that coaches check and see if that state will allow the alternate uniforms to be used. The tournament organizer should be able to verify with the officials before our teams leave town. For matches in state, KHSAA Bylaws dictate that member schools must follow KHSAA rules, so the use of the alternate uniform would definitely be permitted. But, our schools should be cautioned to communicate with those out-of-state hosts in advance.
