State Apparel Guide 2020

One of my favorite posts of the year – the State Apparel Guide! Every year, Preferred Designs sends me the exclusive early look at what our State Tournament gear will look like and the price list for better planning. State gear is cash or check only…. so plan ahead. No credit cards allowed for these items. Of course, the Target Center has ATMs on site, but to avoid fees and delays, plan ahead.


Matt from Preferred Design and I chatted about the sweatshirt color and I’m excited about the vintage marine blue color that was chosen for this year. Something classy, but not more black. This item should stand out from the rest of your team gear for a change.


Joggers were super popular and comfy last year so those will make a return again this year. I also think the beanie hat will be a fun new item with it’s love-your-melon type styling. Check out all the possible items in the PDF Price List
