Before the start of each match, the coaches and officials should line the players up for equipment inspections. Examine each player to make sure of the following:
- They have shin guards and if they don’t have built-in socks, that they are fully-covered with proper soccer socks on the outside.
- They have no hanging or loose jewelry or watches. Medical alert bracelets are allowed, but medical casts and splints are not allowed. (Exceptions can be made; a doctor’s note is required to be filed with the Recreation Department office prior to game day. Call for details.)
- They are not wearing cleats with screw-in studs. Molded rubber traction studs are permitted. Players may also wear flats (ordinary shoes).
- They wear their team jersey on the outside of all other clothing.
