All players are reminded that they must wear our registered uniform - green and white dress, black sports pants and predominately white socks. If you have long hair, it must be tied back off your face. Nails must be cut short and filed, no jewellery (rings, ear-rings, nose-rings or any piercings, bracelets) to be worn and should be left at home so that it doesn't get lost. See below for further information on jewellery.
INTERNATIONAL RULES OF NETBALL - JEWELLERY
5.1.1 Players may not wear anything that could endanger themselves or other players, specifically:
(a) No adornment or jewellery may be worn other than a wedding ring which must be covered with tape
(b) A medical alert bracelet may be worn provided it is covered with tape
We are seeing more instances of players with ear-rings and nose-rings taped, which is a breach of the rules. Players are saying they are unable to remove certain types of ear-rings or have just had their ears pierced.
All umpires are reminded that they need to check all players prior to the start of the game to ensure that players are not wearing any jewellery.
ALL players and coaches need to be aware of this rule and that the only exceptions are the wedding ring and medi-alert bracelet.
Any player caught playing with jewellery will be asked to leave the court until such time as the item is removed.
