Wednesday, July 18, 2012 The maximum height for a player’s number on the arm/sleeve is four (4) 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 maximum four inches high. This prevents skaters from having giant numbers that become illegible during the fast pace 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.
