PSA: MOUNTED WITH HELMETS DURING NATIONAL ANTHEM

The Rules Committee, Safety Committee and USPA Umpires, LLC all agree that players who are mounted should keep their helmets on during the National Anthem and any other pre-game or post-game ceremonies.

The helmet rules (Outdoor Rule 4a and Arena Rule 3.a) apply before, during and after any Event. Armed Forces Committee Chair Mark Gillespie has also confirmed that the Defense Authorization Act of 2009 authorizes veterans and out-of-uniform military personnel to render hand salutes during the National Anthem without removing headgear. Players should not remove their helmets for the National Anthem and clubs should make sure their announcers reinforce this rule requirement, which the Umpires are enforcing.
