PDBA Uniform Modifications

The PDBA will allow players to wear compression gear, as per recent FIBA rule changes.

CHAMPIONSHIP SEASON

During the Season, all teams will be required to meet the following criteria when issuing their teams with playing uniforms.

The uniform of all team members shall consist of:

  • Singlets of the same dominant colour front and back. All players (male and female) must tuck their singlet into their shorts.
  • Shorts of the same dominant colour front and back, but not necessarily of the same colour as the shirts. The shorts must end above the knee.
  • If Associations are unable to meet the above criteria they need to contact the VJBL Administration and explain why. If the PDBA believes there are exceptional
    circumstances they may give permission for associations to make alternate uniform arrangements.

UNIFORM CONTRAST PRIORITY

When a team is named first in the fixture, whether playing at home or a neutral venue, the association/team is required to check the Contrast Listing on the website.
If a team is grouped in the same section on the Contrast list as their opponent, the first named team must change to their alternate uniform.

RELIGIOUS CLOTHING

Religious headgear, provided it is black, white or same dominant colour of playing singlet, may be worn during PDBA games and common sense must be used in these situations.

VJBL UNIFORM RULE

COMPRESSION GEAR & UNDERGARMENTS

The PDBA will allow players to wear compression gear, as per FIBA rules.

Any compression item must be black, white or same dominant colour of playing singlet.

If there is a logo or branding on the item, it must not be visible outside of the uniform or to be the same colour as the item. Eg, black on black.

The colour choice will be decided by the player’s team to ensure that players have uniformity if more than one player in a team is wearing compression gear.
This means that if one player is wearing black compression gear, any other player in the team must also wear black in any compression gear worn.
