IDSF Adjudicator

It was not the athletes' attire that was the focus of lengthy discussions during the 2011 General Meeting. The second part of the motion presented by the Presidium - addressing a uniform dress code for Adjudicators in major competitions - was subject to debate.

The Presidium had made its proposal to promote a strict policy that at all IDSF Championships, Cups and Grand Slams, IDSF Adjudicators serve as a team and as representatives of IDSF.

And it had also reasoned that IDSF should promote this policy in order to direct all attention to the athletes in the competition rather than to the adjudicators.

The amended text of Rule 12 - which was approved by the required majority of the 2011 IDSF General Meeting - now reads as follows.

 

Competition Dress 

IDSF Adjudicator1. In all competitions granted under these Rules, competitors shall dress or costume according to the IDSF Dress Regulations, which form a part of these Rules.  For greater certainty and without limiting the generality of this Rule, in all age divisions the buttocks of the female partners must be covered at all times during competition and “tangas” may not be worn at any time. The chairman, or the IDSF Sports Director, has the right to disqualify any couple at the competition when either partner is not dressed or costumed according to this Rule, and in addition to its other powers under the IDSF Statutes the Presidium is authorized to suspend from competitions for a limited period of time any competitor who breaks this Rule.

2. In all IDSF Championships, Cups and Grand Slams granted under these Rules, adjudicators serve as a team and shall dress or costume as follows: 

(a) men:  black or midnight-blue business suit,  dress shirt, IDSF necktie, dress shoes;  and

(b) women:  black or midnight-blue business suit with either skirt or trousers, dress blouse, IDSF scarf, dress shoes.

Over the coming days, we will continue to report on the outcome of the 2011 IDSF (and WDSF) General Meeting. All amendments that were made to the Competition Rules will be presented with a short text. Come back soon!
