UHSAA Uniform - Where to Buy?
Hey Michael, do you know any specific stores you get I can get the UHSAA official ref jerseys ?! I think you mentioned two places last time we spoke, but I just cannot remember. Jeff
This is a great question, especially for a newer official. But don't think I have not been asked by dozens of seasoned officials as well. I took the time to respond to Jeff and documented all of the important links and information.

MY RESPONSE TO JEFF
You can always go to Smitty's and they will redirect you to the actual distributor. They are Smitty shirts, but the guy in Denver negotiated the rights for the UHSAA sales contract.
Here is where Smitty's redirects you…
Here is the second Smitty's redirect…
You will notice that they have two different model shirts. Is one worth $10-$15 more? Good question… I also see that on one site the lesser shirt is $42.95 and on the other it is $47.99. This would show me that the second site is getting yet another cut, but their page displays are better.
So…. After checking out all three sites, this link looks to be the best value and looks exactly like the two shirts I have. Maybe there are some site differences with shipping. Let me know which you end up going with and what your total is to get a shirt delivered.
As for the jacket, I would go directly to Cal Jones’ business in Orem. He has long had the contract for the UHSAA logo jacket. His business is “The Ink Spot”.
THE INK SPOT
Address: 255 North State St.

Here is the Out West Officials link to the jacket…
I will add this info to the www.OfficiateTheGame.com site.
Hope this helps!
Make it a great game! Michael Leavitt - Orem, Utah
So how does the sublimation process work? I always thought they took a solid color shirt and then printed on it. Obviously, I was wrong. This video brought it to life for me. Enjoy!
