INFORMAL SURVEY - HARD CASTS
« on: September 22, 2017, 01:47:17 PM »
Michigan has long adopted a policy outside the (recently modified) NFHS rule to retain the requirement to present a "Doctor's letter" to officials prior to each game in which a player with a (properly-padded) hard cast wishes to participate.  The note can be from an MD, DO, PA, or Nurse Practitioner.

Since this (Dr's note) is no longer required under NFHS rules, I'm interested to know how many states still require one.

Thanks

SC does not.  They can play if the cast is properly padded.

NC ... Teams are required to have a "Prescribed Appliance Form" per player.

No special dispensation required in RI but we do check for adequate padding and warn the player to not use it as a "weapon".
