8. Uniform Guidelines
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, cigarettes or other inferences inappropriate for youth.
Points of emphasis for youth: a team’s game jerseys body and sleeves should be of a single, dominant color with contrasting numbers on the front and back of sufficient size to be clearly visible by game officials anywhere on the field. Reversible pinnies meeting these criteria are acceptable, however sleeves must be a minimum of 4 inches wide.
The following are minimum numeral sizes by age group:
At least 8-inch numerals on the front that shall be centered
At least10-inch numerals on the back that shall be centered
At least 6-inch numerals on the front that shall be centered
At least 8-inch numerals on the back that shall be centered

Please note that if your team is not compliant with the new uniform rules it will result in an automatic turnover during the first draw of the game. Click here for USL Women's rules.
