LADIES SPORTS UNIFORM – CLARIFICATION
There has been misunderstanding in the past regarding sport top uniforms for girls
The ACE® Ministry guidelines for International competition read…
(A T-shirt must be worn under V-neck athletic shirts.)
In some countries there is a ladies V-necked, halter-type athletic shirt. Thus the requirement – for modesty sake – for a t-shirt to be worn under this type of shirt.
A round neck shirt (such as the type men wear under a barong tagalog) is acceptable. NOT a man’s shirt, but that type of neck.
V-neck is NOT required.
Collar is NOT required.
Round or also known as a “jewel” neck is permitted. Shirt must have sleeves.
