Are Yellow Shirts LEGAL in competition?

There have been discussions and even "rumors" about rule changes regarding clothing that may be distracting to players...Yellow or Neon colored shirts. 

We addressed this issue with the Rules Director of the USAPA, Christin Barksdale.

The Rules Committee is in the process of reviewing the entire rulebook, but it will be several months before any changes go into effect or published...Last Revised: June 15, 2016, available on USAPA website ( http://www.usapa.org/ifp-official-rules/ ).

Two different rules that could be applied: 
  • IFP Rule 2.F.1 Color: Clothing may be of any color
  • IFP Rule 2.F.2 Safety/Distraction: A Player may be required to change wet, extremely loose-fitting, or otherwise distracting garments.

With that being said, you may not penalize a player for the color of the shirt,
but if there are other issues (ex: it is reflective or falling off the player) the TD
may request a change of clothing. 

Why am I NOT getting the Smashers Email?

or How do I continue receiving Smashers Emails?

  
  • You must be a member in Good Standing (bylaws) and current in your dues (2018).
  • You must provide a current and correct email address.
If your email address changes, notify the Smasher smashers.board@gmail.com
The Smashers must have accurately recorded your email address.  Mistakes can be made -verify with the club that a correct email is being used.
  • OPEN your emails from the Smashers. Even if you have no interest in the topic, you can delete the email right away, but by “opening” the email, you are identifying the “Smashers” to your ISP (Internet Service Provider, like gmail, yahoo, aol, etc.) that this “sender” is acceptable.
  • Check your “Spam,” “Junk” or “Promotions” folders.  If you find a Smashers email, move it to your “inbox” and open the email.
