As registration for the fall is picking up, I thought that it might be a good idea to remind everyone what an acceptable picture for a pass should look like.
- All features of the face must be visible and easily identifiable. This is really important because when a player on the field is challenged, a close comparison is done between the features of the player and the features in the photo.
- All wording printed on the pass must be visible.
- When the passes are printed, there is a gray square printed on the left hand side to help in positioning where the picture should be placed and to help in identifying the correct size for the picture.
- The picture should not be too small (see #1 above)
- The picture should not be too large (see #2 above)
- Entire head must be in the picture – tops of heads and chins should not be cut off (see #1 above)
- No hats or sunglasses (see #1 above). Exceptions are made if the head covering is required as part of the player’s religion.
- Picture should not be too dark or too light (see #1 above)
Many thanks to Melinda Rainville, co-State Registrar, for putting together this great reminder! If you have any questions or comments, give us a holler!
