Policy and Procedures
Hours of Service
The Equipment Room is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. during the academic year. Hours on weekends and outside the academic calendar are established based upon the needs of the individual sport programs. Equipment Counter Services begin at 9:00 a.m.
Gear Issuance and Return
In accordance with Claremont Mudd Scripps Athletic Policy, Southern California Intercollegiate Conference rules and NCAA rules, intercollegiate athletics will provide athletic equipment and clothing for all student-athletes participating in an athletic program. Upon receipt of a final roster from the Head Coach, the Athletic Equipment Room will issue Athletic Gear to each athlete. Lockers will be assigned by the Athletic Equipment Room, unless cleared by the Athletic Equipment Manager to assign. All athletic lockers must have locks issued by the Athletic Equipment Room. Personal locks are not allowed.
The return of athletic equipment issued by the Athletic Equipment Room from the Student-Athlete will occur within 14 days of completion of the last competition date ( e.g., end of season, End of NCAA Post season play, player is dismissed from roster.) If Athletic Equipment is not returned to the Athletic Equipment Room within this 14 day period, the athletic equipment manager will submit requests to the student accounts office and the CMS Business Manager to place holds on the student account delaying graduation, release of diploma, grades etc. This hold will be lifted once the Student-Athlete has returned the missing equipment, and or paid missing charges (Special circumstances will be determined by the Athletic Equipment Manager and Athletics Business Manager).
Embroidery and Screen Printing
Today’s athletic environment is an increasingly competitive one. Rankings, ratings, the internet—all give prospective student-athletes and their parents more options to evaluate our teams than ever before. CMC Public Affairs and Communications and the CMS Department of Athletics have worked together to shape and refine the updated visual identity. It has been developed to help CMS position itself as a premier athletics department in the NCAA Division III and beyond. The new brand will establish a stronger visual presence, uniting the department, and presenting a more cohesive look and feel to all audiences. The new identity and corresponding Graphic Standards reflect CMS Athletics’ style, passion, and character, as well as its traditions, strengths, and values.
These guidelines are designed to protect the investment CMS has made in the new brand image. With your commitment to the standards, CMS will present the strong and unified message that is very important to our communication efforts. A thorough understanding of the elements within this manual is critical. Deviation from these guidelines may create confusion and dilute the brand identity of the department. Therefore, it is extremely important that all athletic department coaches, staff, and vendors adhere to the standards as outlined in this manual. Our brand identity is a highly valuable asset. Careful execution of the identity program as it has been designed will ensure a successful rollout and long-term implementation. Your support and cooperation are appreciated in its promotion and protection. Please take the time to review all the sections of this manual and share it with anyone responsible for producing materials for CMS

Laundry loops will be distributed to each student-athlete to facilitate laundering of practice gear and affiliated athletic apparel. The equipment room will only wash those items, department issued and personal, that were worn for practice or contest related activities.
College issued apparel worn for practice and competition must be returned to the equipment room immediately after each practice or competition for laundering. To maintain uniform integrity, all competition uniforms must be returned for laundering by the student-athlete, regardless of whether or not they competed. If items cannot be returned immediately following practice or contests, the competition worn articles must be returned before practice the following day. Student-athletes, relatives or friends are not permitted to launder uniforms on their own. Coaching staff will be responsible for laundering services when individuals/teams are away from campus for an extended length of time (e.g. spring break tourney, NCAA championships, etc.).
*Actual gear provided will be based on availability of sizes requested.
