The District has documentation from the following manufacturers that decals on their helmets are permitted.
Each manufacturer has significant restrictions that must be followed to use decals on the helmet so as not to void the warranty. In particular, stickers cannot be larger than 20% of the helmet surface area in most cases and cannot cover the NOCSAE or other stamps. Please read the respective letter for details.
District 16 is in possession of these letters, which are considered “approval in writing by the helmet manufacturer” for purposes of rule 1.16. Other manufacturer helmets, including those manufactured by parent, sibling, or child companies of these companies, are not covered by this approval.
Individual players are not required to carry a copy of the letter with them at District 16 Tournament games. Players that advance beyond District 16 play should print out and carry a hard copy with them.
