01/30/13 Exos Braces Worn on The Forearm or Wrist Ruled are Illegal for Basketball

January 30, 2013 Basketball Blog Updates

Our office has been contacted several time regarding the Exos Brace being worn on the forearm or wrist.  
 
NFHS Basketball Rule 3-5 article 2a states:
A guard, cast or brace made of hard or unyielding substance, such as, but not limited to, leather, plaster, plastic, or metal shall not be worn on the elbow, hand, finger/thumb, wrist or forearm; even though covered in soft padding.
 
Because the dial is plastic this brace cannot be worn during competition.  We were able to confirm this ruling in a phone conversation today with the NFHS office.
