The Women's Flat Track Derby Association (WFTDA) Rules, Section 9.1 Protective Gear, requires:
  • 9.1.1 Protective gear must be worn while skating on the rink. Helmets and mouth guards may be removed by skaters during team introductions. Failure to wear required protective gear may result in a penalty at the referees' discretion.
  • 9.1.2 Protective gear shall include, at a minimum wrist guards, elbow pads, knee pads, a mouth guard, and a helmet.
  • 9.1.3 Optional protective gear such as padded shorts, shin guards, knee and ankle support, and tailbone protectors may be worn at the skaters' discretion as long as they do not impair or interfere with the safety or play of other skaters, support staff, or officials. Skaters are strongly encouraged to secure or tape down loose Velcro on pads.
