- For 8U/10U/12U, numerals must be centered and at least 6 inches on the front and 8 inches on the back
Boys and Girls 8U Uniforms
The NCJLA recognizes that uniforms for this division should not be cost prohibitive. Teams should have a single color top that fits appropriately for the player and is one of the club’s designated colors. Teams may choose to have a reversible pinnie. It is recommended that players have matching undergarments that cover equipment if they choose to wear a pinnie with sleeves less than 4 inches wide. The NCJLA recommends that teams have player names, numbers etc on the uniform to assist coaches with on field directions and penalty administration but it is not required. For questions related to uniforms please contact the NCJLA Boys or Girls Director.
Sponsorships, boys or girls uniforms
Logos or sponsored advertising may be worn on a uniform but may be no larger than 4 inches in either direction. It cannot replace the club name or mascot name across the front or back of the jersey. Logos can be in the form of a patch, tackle-twill or screened.
The NCJLA board of directors ultimately has the final say in what is appropriate for any logo or sponsorship showing on the uniform. It is up to the individual club to maintain a suitable logo design and slogan on a youth player’s uniform. No references to bars, alcohol, saloons, tobacco or smoking products, illegal substances, or other inferences inappropriate for youth. Email email@example.com for approval.
Should a team have extenuating circumstances and need to use a different uniform type, color or size the club president should contact the NCJLA Executive Director to apply for a waiver. Waivers should be submitted prior to ordering any uniforms. The NCJLA Board of Directors will review the request and provide a ruling at the next scheduled board meeting.
