freestyle/greco-roman singlet regulations

 

All,
Please forward these out to your clubs and contacts.
There are 2 options for FS/GR singlets.

Option A
Traditional Red and Blue or reversible Red/Blue. Over 60 percent of the singlet needs to be Red or Blue and very little of the opposite color should be used.

Option B –
For state and regional/national events, there are allowable color combinations and specific striping that denotes red and blue. It is very specific down to the pantone color of the stripe.

Singlet colors that be designated as Blue can be mostly Black, Blue, Green, Grey, Purple, or Silver. These primary body colors can only be used for Blue singlets.

Singlet colors that be designated as Red can be mostly White, Orange, Pink, Red, Yellow, Brown, or Gold. These primary body colors can only be used for Red singlets.

To use other than Blue or Red singlets, stripes in these specific Pantone colors must be in these specific locations. The big, bold stripes are what is required with no words or design elements within the stripes. The arching seam stripes in the crotch and on the buttocks are not required. Singlets designated as Blue must use Pantone Color 299C. Singlets designated as Red must use Pantone Color 2347C.

Here are the striping locations.

Here are examples of other singlets in non traditional colors that meet the regulations:

I would also forward the attached pdf to your singlet manufacturer. Most of them are apprised of these guidelines, but I have seen some strange colors that tried to conform but are technically illegal (examples including a black singlet with red striping, an orange singlet with orange striping).

UWW guidelines that USAW follows for singlet color is in the PDF below.
