Ankle bracelet

NFHS

As the starters were being introduced, I noticed one of them with a pink ankle bracelet. Stepped over to the coach and asked if he knew about his player wearing the ankle bracelet. He said he did and the player was showing it as a sign of support for her mother who was battling breast cancer. All the other girls on her team had pick shoelaces.
I let it go, would you?

I'll let it go if you can find the FED rule "jewelry is only illegal if it's worn on the ears, neck or wrist."

Bob, now I'm a bit confused.

In a previous thread about belly rings, I sad to "ignore it."

You said.

"Disagree. Handle the same way."

(That is, handle the same way once you know about it. Look for earrings and nose or lip piercings, etc; don't look for navel or nipple piercings.)

So, are you going to ignore the ankle jewelry if you know about it, but the bely ring must come out? I would imagine the belly ring is probably more dangeous and could cause more injury. I'm just trying to get a read here so in my mind I can be consistent.

1) An ankle bracelt is covered under the same category as "earrings...". That is, look for it.

2) Whether you look for it or not, once you find it, enforce it.

Great cause...but I'd never allow it without previous explicit direction from a governing body. Religious and medical alert medals/bracelets are specifically covered in the rules. This one isn't.

sorry guys but

You know, I am going to have to lean the other way here. Unless the governing body specifically says that this team has been warned about this before or something of that nature...I am letting this slide. I have lost too many people to this disease, and I just could not tell her she had to take it off....I understand all the implications if somone hangs a finger etc etc etc....there are just way bigger things in life than those little books that we all refer to.....IMHO

Can't Convince Him Otherwise ...

I know that officials are not supposed to wear jewelry, except, possibly, a wedding band, but my parole officer won't allow me to take off my ankle bracelet for any reason. Not even for basketball officiating.

I agree with your entire point....except for letting it slide.

There are things just way more important than the books or the game on the floor...so the player will not be playing with jewelry on. I wouldn't think to say they had to remove it...just that she can't play with it on. If they feel it is more important to wear the jewelry than it is to play, that is their choice.

I might suggest to the player that if the bracelet was under her sock, I probably wouldn't notice it.

+1.
Just curious if it was metallic or one of the rubbery ones that people wear on their wrists. No reason. Just curios.
