10.1.2 Protective gear shall include, at a minimum: wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads, mouth guards, and helmets.

Friday's rule stated when skaters must be wearing required protective gear. Today's rule explains what constitutes required protective gear. It is the 5 items listed above. It was questioned before, but toe stops are not considered required protective equipment. Toe stops are optional, and there are many skaters who choose to use plugs instead if toe stops.
