VHSL Regulations about the Appearance of Competitors
Virginia High School League (VHSL) rules are very strict about uniforms and the appearance of competitors. Each year debates and disqualifications occur at the district, region, and state level over the rules about modesty, advertising, and jewelry (see section on VHSL regulations below). These rules are enforced even at dual meets, however. Robinson almost lost a meet one year when the modesty of a relay team member's attire was challenged by a stroke and turn judge. The relay team's points were critical to winning the meet. So, please read the rules and take them seriously.
VHSL Regulations require the following:
A competitor shall not be permitted to participate wearing a suit that is not of decent appearance. Boys shall wear trunks that cover the buttocks. Girls shall wear suits that cover the buttocks and the breast.
Competitors shall not be permitted to compete in attire (suits and caps) that includes advertising or a name other than the name and/or number of the competitor, school, or mascot except one visible logo/trade name not exceeding 2 1/4 square inches in any dimension. An American flag, not to exceed 2 by 3 inches, and either a commemorative or memorial patch, not to exceed 4 square inches and with written state association approval, may be worn on each item of the uniform apparel provided neither the flag nor the patch interferes with the visibility of the number.
A competitor shall not wear jewelry (except religious/medical medal, which must be taped to the body) or objectionable attire. Hair restraining devices are considered legal, provided they are functioning and are being worn in the hair during the event. A hair tie worn on the wrist is considered "jewelry."
