Once again this year, our corps will be making an order of hooded sweaters for anyone wishing to purchase one.

The hoodies will be maroon in colour, and have the corps crest heat pressed in the upper left of the chest. 2515 will be written down the left forearm, and up to two lines of customization will be available on the right sleeve (top line for name, bottom line for a team, activity or position held). The total cost comes in at $60, including tax, however this cost will be partially subsidized so that the actual cost to the cadet is $40.
