The SHSAA Office has also received inquiries about the undergarment rule and Canada Basketball approved modifications that were implemented starting last year.  The following is a reminder of those rules:

 

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
