WCBA By-law Changes
Please see the below by-law changes.
The committee have decided that SMBC will only wear black compression gear. Please see the website for pictures of acceptable compression gear. (3) COMPRESSION GEAR & UNDERGARMENTS The WCBA will allow players to wear compression gear Any compression item must be black, white or same dominant color of playing singlet. If there is a logo or branding on the item, it must not be visible outside of the uniform or to be the same color as the item. Eg, black on black. The color choice will be decided by the player’s association to ensure that teams have uniformity if more than one player in a team is wearing compression gear. This means that if one player is wearing black compression gear, any other player in the team must also wear black in any compression gear worn.
