IMPORTANT NOTE about JEWELRY and ADORNMENTS:
The Referees have been instructed not to permit children to play wearing jewelry and hard objects. This policy is intended to try to reduce hazards and incidents of potentially serious injury. For the same reason, the hard plastic of the shin guards should be completely covered/enclosed by a sock or sleeve.
Examples of banned objects include earrings, any loose-fitting wrist band/bracelet, any hard metal or plastic wrist band/bracelet/watch; jean shorts with metal studs/rivets, belt buckles, plastic or metal hair holders/clips, and so on.
These items should probably not even be worn to the games (so they don't get lost when they are removed). It's probably best if players also avoid wearing these items to practice. Thanks in advance.
