Every year the
question about players and their jewelry comes up.
Every year the question about players and their jewelry comes up.
Here is the policy on jewelry:
No earrings, watches, rings, necklaces, bracelets or wristbands may be worn during play or practice.
Hair bands, if worn, must be elastic.
Other articles that may be considered by the referee to endanger either the player or other players must also be removed.
Religious and medical bracelets and necklaces are not considered "jewelry" but must be taped to the body to the satisfaction of the referee.
Failure to obey the referee will automatically disqualify the player from participation until the referee determines the hazard has been resolved.
In particular, any items - including medical and/orchecking religous items - which utilize a "stud" to fasten them to the body are strictly prohibited.
If the offending item cannot be removed then the player is not allowed to participate in the game.
This is an absolute and unchallengeable rule. Do not request any "special waiver" because it will not be granted.
Do not berate the referee for insisting on compliance with this rule.
