Why NAIA?

Recommended Posts

I worked at a school where you got your state flag and name on the back of your singlet...but if you quit the team...you never got that singlet, and you actually were expected to return half your crap because should you do something stupid in public, we didn't want to be the walking poster for you being a derelict.

That's reasonable.

 

Would the athlete even retain the singlet during the season? Wouldn't it be given to them for events and be collected following the event to be washed? Or did the athletes have to do their own athletic related laundry?

In college, we were issued a singlet after we made the team for our first competition and turned it in at the end of the year.  They had athletic staff that washed our gear for us.  When I coached, we were able to have a work study position for laundry filled by a team member--very coveted job.

We did laundry after every weight lifting, conditioning, wrestling,  or competitive event and it was then put in their lockers.    Singlets were gathered up after tournaments, and not given back until they competed again.
