2013-2014 Team Uniform Requirements

We are getting many inquiries on the uniform requirements as teams are ordering for the year.   As a reminder, the requirements are listed below:



a. Uniform numbers must be clearly visible and centered (both horizontally and vertically) on the player’s chest and upper back.

b. Each jersey must use the same color and number height for all players, except the Libero’s jersey, which may have different color and size numbers, provided it still meets the minimum criteria stated in USAV

c. Color combinations such as purple/black, dark green/black, navy/black, white/light yellow or navy/maroon are not distinctive enough to comply with the rules.


USAV The numbers must be a minimum of 10 cm (4”) in height on the chest and a minimum of 15 cm (6”) in height on the back. It is recommended that the numbers be a minimum of 15 cm (6”) in height on the chest and a minimum of 20 cm (8”) on the back


USAV 19.2

a. The Libero player’s jersey must contrast in color with that of the predominant colors of the jerseys of the other team members.  Color combinations such as purple/black, dark green/black, navy/maroon, and white/light yellow are not distinctive enough to comply with the rules.


NOTE: It is recommended now and required beginning Sept. 1, 2014, the Libero shall wear a uniform top that is immediately recognized from all angles as being in clear contrast to and distinct from the other members of the team. The Libero and/or his/her teammates shall wear a solid colored uniform top.

Regarding the solid colored top:

(a). The solid color uniform top shall clearly contrast from the predominant color(s) of the teammates’ uniform top. Predominant color(s) is the color(s) appearing on approximately half of the uniform.

(b). Sleeves shall be the same color as the body of the uniform top.

(c). Piping/trim not exceeding 1 inch in total at its widest point may be placed along the seams and may be a different color(s) than the uniform top.

(d). Lettering and collars may be different color(s) than the uniform top.

(e). Numbers shall be a contrasting color to the uniform top and meet all other specifications in USAV


b. A jacket or bib can only be worn by the redesignated Libero.  If a jacket or bib is worn by the redesignated Libero, the uniform number must still be visible


NOTE:  NCVF makes no restrictions on uniform adornment, such as patches, other than those specified by the USAV Domestic Competition Regulations (DCR).  Adornments with numerals must not make the uniform illegal regarding the uniform number size, position and visibility as specified by the USAV Domestic Competition Regulations (DCR).  Currently the uniform number must be clearly visible and centered (both horizontally and vertically) on both front and back.


NCVF strongly recommends that teams submit any questions regarding the legality of a uniform, combination of uniforms (regular player/Libero), or adornments to the Playing Rules Committee for review and ruling.  Teams should include a photo or artwork along with any questions.
