Hello New England,
We wanted to make sure that all club directors, coaches, team captains or anyone responsible for ordering and/or approving uniforms are aware of this upcoming change beginning in the 2014-15 season.
Beginning in the 2014-15 USAV season, the following verbiage will be used in regards to Libero jerseys contrasting with regular team jerseys.
As of SEPTEMBER 1, 2014, it is required that either the Libero or their teammates wear a solid color jersey. The solid color jersey must clearly contrast from the predominant color(s) of the teammates’ jersey. Predominant colors are those that appear on approximately half of the body of the uniform jersey.
To be considered solid colored:
- Sleeves must be the same color as the body of the jersey.
- Piping/trim not exceeding 1 inch in total at its widest point may be placed along the seams and may be a different color than the uniform jersey.
- Lettering and collars can be a different color than the body of the jersey.
- Numbers must be a contrasting color and meet all other specifications in Rule 4.3.3 and associated USAV regulations.
