ART. 3 . . . Wristbands and headwear must meet the following guidelines:
Headbands and wristbands must be white, black, beige or a single solid color similar to the torso of the jersey and must be the same color for each item and all participants. See 3-6 for logo requirements.
A headband is any item that goes around the entire head. If worn, only one headband is permitted, it must be worn on the forehead/crown, it must be nonabrasive and unadorned, and it must be a maximum of 2 inches.
If worn, only one wristband is permitted on each wrist, each must be worn on the arm below the elbow, each must be moisture-absorbing, nonabrasive and unadorned, and each must be a maximum of 4 inches.
Rubber, cloth or elastic bands may be used to control hair. Hard items, including, but not limited to, beads, barrettes and bobby pins, are prohibited.
Head decorations and headwear, except those specified above, are prohibited.
This includes: the elastic 2 inch wide traditional type headband, the small elastic bands usually worn by girls to control their hair (yes, this is a headband even though its being used to control the hair since it goes around the head), pre-wrap strips (same as the small bands, this is considered a headband even though its used to control the hair).
-Headbands may not be plastic or other hard material. Some leather ones have been used and these are legal as long as they are not adorned with anything else and meet the color requirements. Headbands may not be adorned with any decoration and must be nonabrasive. (unadorned means without adornment or embellishment; simple or plain; bare, meaning it can have the one solid color that is the same color worn by all team members, no wording[except legal logo], no decorations)
Wristbands must be moisture-absorbing, worn below the elbow, and only one wristband allowed per arm
-Next, the team must decide what color of headbands and/or wristbands they are going to wear. One color is to be used for either of these items for the entire team. The color must be: the predominant color of the game jersey, white, black, or beige. These must be one single solid color, no stripes, no patterns using these colors.
Logos on headbands/wristbands Rule book rule 3-6
ART. 1 One visible manufacturer’s logo/trademark/reference or school
ART. 2 The size shall be limited to 2¼ square inches and shall not exceed
2¼ inches in any dimension on any item.
This means one logo per item and it can’t be more than 2 ¼” in any direction.
Example: headband can’t have more than one Nike swoosh logo or say Nike repeatedly around the headband. Nike swoosh can’t be larger than 2 ¼” wide or tall.
Hair control devices
Rubber, cloth or elastic bands may be used to control hair (NO TAPE). This means its NOT worn around the head (such as the thin headbands or strips of pre-wrap are typically worn to control hair but are worn around the head/crown of the head), it controls pony tails.
This means the bands used to control a pony tail can be rubber, cloth, or elastic, they may not be adorned (no ribbon, decorations, bells, whistles, NO logos of any type).
-Tape cannot be worn in the hair, nor can it be worn on the ears to cover jewelry. Coaches should inform players not to get their ears pierced close to the beginning of the season because they can’t wear their new rings even if covered with tape.
Items worn under jersey Rule 3-5-5, 3-5-6 p.24
Undershirts must be a single solid color similar to the color of the jersey
Sleeves on undershirts shall be the same length on both sleeves of an individual player, and shall not have frayed edges
Compression shorts shall be a single solid color similar to the color of the jersey, shall not be longer than the knee but also shall not extend below the game shorts/skirt (this means as the player is standing still the compression shorts should not be below the shorts, while playing the shorts will move up exposing the compression shorts and is to be expected, hence they shall be the same color as the shorts/skirt)
