Monday, July 16, 2012 The minimum height for a player's number on the arm/sleeve is two (2) inches.

Last week I posted rule 3.7.5, which requires skaters to have their skater number on each arm or sleeve. Today's rule requires that number to be a minimum two inches high. This prevents skaters from having half inch high numbers which are practically invisible during the fast paced action of roller derby. After all, the number on the arm/sleeve is there for visibility, particularly for the referees to be able to properly call penalties on skaters.
