The current wrestling officials uniform for all high school contests (regular and post-season) is described in the KHSAA Officials Guidebook produced annually. Officials must wear the grey shirt with black pinstripes with embroidered KHSAA logo over the heart per instructions to approved vendors. Black beltless or belted slacks must also be worn along with black shoes. If your slacks have belt loops, a belt must be worn. Officials may also wear any NFHS compliant tournament issued shirt if all officials wear them. Officials must also wear wristbands (red on left arm and green on right arm) along with a black whistle with black lanyard.
A jacket is also available to be worn off the mat but must be black with dual one inch white stripes and embroidered with the KHSAA logo. The KWOA has also been given permission to adorn the jacket with KWOA and event specific patches. Only the three listed patches have been given approval. No other patches are permitted. The KWOA patch is to be placed at varying widths from your right shoulder seam across from the KHSAA logo. For small, medium, and large the patch should be 4 inches from the seam, XL and 2XL, 5 1/2 inches from the seam, and 3XL and up 7 inches from the seam.
KHSAA State Tournament and KWCA State Duals Trournament patches may also be placed on the jacket sleeves. The KHSAA State Tournament patch is to be placed on the left sleeve and the KWCA State Duals Tournament patch is to be placed on the right. The patches should be placed at varying distances from the shoulder seam based upon the size of your jacket. For small, medium, and large the patch should be 4 inches from the seam, XL and 2XL, 5 1/2 inches from the seam, and 3XL and up 7 inches from the seam. See the infographic for a representation of the proper placement for the KWOA, KHSAA tournament, and KWCA tournament patches.
