Will THE CAST PROTECTOR automatically be accepted for game play?
Although the larger two sizes of THE CAST PROTECTOR provide padding that is accepted for high school competition, the official on the field has the ultimate decision to approve this device for use in each game. There is as of now no uniform guide to cast padding across the various levels of sports.
The larger two sizes of THE CAST PROTECTOR meet the national high school football guidelines as well as the NCAA guidelines. It should reasonably be accepted by most sports allowing play with a padded cast. I cannot state categorically that all referees will allow it, however.
THE NATIONAL FEDERATION OF STATE HIGH SCHOOL FEDERATIONS LETTER OF APPROVAL IS ON THE WEBSITE AND CAN BE COPIED AND TAKEN TO GAMES.
The small10 inch size now has 3/8 inch padding. It was designed for the smaller children in response to requests for smaller pads. The pad provides good protection and is much less bulky than the bigger versions on the little players. With the cover, it does measure 5/8 in thick and thus could possibly be accepted at all levels. Remember the pad is designed to protect other players.
