Tournament dress code

I'm planning to get some new ref shirts, as mine's cheap & nasty.

There's a good chance my local league will be joining WFTDA soon (or at least applying), and I figure there's no harm in getting new stripes that meet the rules for the top level of play - and all officiating professionalism is a good thing.

Is the tournament dress code an open/available document, or is it restricted to WFTDA members only? I'm happy to accept that some stuff is confidential, but if I'm allowed to know what it says then I can plan my next purchases accordingly.

Thanks!

What I think might be an appropriate substitute in the meantime is to provide examples of what items you're looking for, and people here can tell you if they would be permissible or not.

I don't believe that you can possibly go wrong with a polyester black and white striped basketball referee jersey and a pair of black mesh gym shorts.

So, for a team's home bout (as opposed to a tournament like Governor's Cup), could you wear a modified ref shirt as long as the rules are followed, especially visible name/number of the ref? Hypothetical: a ref shirt with long sleeves, a medium-width obi sash that doesn't block the number, and matches the vertical ref stripes on the shirt. Or anything offbeat that 1) doesn't impact safety/skating and 2) doesn't break the WFTDA rules. Just as a bit of flair for home games...

Non-tournament, non-sanctioned, non-regulation, home intraleague bouts you could dress as vikings, if you wished. Make certain the horns aren't going to injure anyone, though.

You will bout as you practice.

So, basically only for scrimmages, then, or non-WFTDA team play (those who aren't officially part of the league).

Dress code for any given bout is at the discretion of the head referee. That's regardless of it being regulation, sanctioned, or not.

Also make sure the whistle does not get lost in the fake beard (if applicable)

Is there any restriction on whistle color?  'Cause I'd hate to be banned from tournament bouts for two years because I wore an inappropriate color of whistle ...

I wear a black Utilikilt for bouts, would this comply with 'Tournament dress code'? .Everything else is striped (regulation shirt with name on the back and striped ref socks).

No, and that link makes me weep. Although it may in fact have been against their dress code, so... they should have known.

Luckily we* don't do post-facto dress code violation penalties. Your THR would notify you of anything you needed to fix before you were allowed to skate.

*Not speaking for anyone except myself.

Fortunately pink is defined as an un-obtrusive color according to 9.4.2.1

Im with General Justice in that I would also be interested in finding out if a Kilt is acceptable. I wear either a black utilikilt or an army green kilt to go with my tartan helmet ;D

I have never had a problem at any bouts or scrims i've reffed so far but none of them have been sanctioned WFTDA bouts
