The following is a summary of the undergarment policy recently adopted by SHSAA via changes from FIBA.

 

Allowed

  • T-shirts are allowed but must be the same color as the uniform – no long sleeves or cut offs.
  • Compression t-shirts – allowed in either white, black or color of the uniform, all players must wear the same colour
  • Compression Shorts -  allowed in either white, black or color of the uniform, all players must wear the same colour
  • Compression Arm Sleeves - allowed in either white, black or color of the uniform, all players must wear the same colour
  • Compression Leg Sleeves - allowed in either white, black or color of the uniform, all players must wear the same colour
  • Headbands/Wristbands - allowed in either white, black or color of the uniform, all players must wear the same colour

 

Not Allowed

  • Long sleeve or cut off t-shirts
  • Long sleeve compression shirts
  • Long leg compression pants (extend below the knee)
  • Bandana’s or loose-fitting headwear (unless for religious purposes)

 

ALL UNDERGARMENTS MUST BE THE SAME COLOR FOR ALL ON THE TEAM – BLACK, WHITE OR DOMINANT COLOR – I.E. if one player is wearing a black arm sleeve then all players must wear black undergarments.

 

Exceptions

  • Tape and K Tape can be of any colour
  • Headwear can be worn for religious purpose as long as not deemed dangerous to the player or others
  • Medical exceptions can be made for any of the above as long as approval is provided
  • Braces – can be of any colour
  • Socks – can be of any colour or length

 

To further assist with the education of officials, coaches, and players a PowerPoint has been developed to illustrate what is legal. The PowerPoint has been put on the SHSAA website and is below.

 

Any concessions that might be required by schools for the their student athletes (religious, health, etc.) should be addressed through the SHSAA office.
