LUSA Rules & Regulations

NO jewelry: that includes rings, bracelets (except medical alert bracelets — which must be either made of Velcro or similar soft material, or covered with a sweatband), earrings, necklaces, other visible body piercing, etc. The practice of taping jewelry is not acceptable.

 

Langley United Soccer Association  - Headscarf and Turban Policy

At its meeting on October 2, 2012, the International Football Association Board (IFAB) approved the amendments Law 4 -The Players’ Equipment (“headscarf”). The decision of the IFAB regarding the use of headscarves comes into effect immediately.

 

IFAB Decision:

As outlined in Law 4 of the FIFA Laws of the Game, where head covers (excluding goalkeepers’ caps) are worn, they must: be black or the same main colour as the shirt (provided that the players of the same team wear the same colour) be in keeping with the professional appearance of the player’s equipment • not be attached to the shirt not be dangerous to the player wearing it or any other player (e.g. opening/closing mechanism around neck) not have any part(s) extending out from the surface (protruding elements) Other headscarves are also permitted provided the above criteria are met.

 

This policy is designed to reduce inconsistencies in rulings over players wearing casts. All referees are expected to follow these policies in all matches sanctioned by Canada Soccer Law 4 states that a player may not use equipment or wear anything that is dangerous [to anyone]. It further states that non-dangerous protective equipment is permitted as long as it has the sole purpose of protecting the individual physically, providing it poses no danger to the individual or any other player.

Modern protective equipment made of soft, lightweight, padded materials are not considered dangerous and are therefore permitted. Hard casts are considered to pose a danger to both the wearer and other players and are not permitted to be worn. The practice of padding a hard cast does not reduce the element of danger. Players wearing a soft cast will be permitted to play if the cast does not present a danger to the individual or any other player. The referee or Supervisor of Officials (if one has been appointed to the match/tournament) will make the final decision as to the acceptability of any cast. Any player who uses a cast with the intent to intimidate or injure an opponent shall be sent off.
