Default New USASF Rules Regarding Bows

Not sure if everyone's seen USASF's new bow rules....
“Bows should not be excessive in size (acceptable bows are generally no more than 3” in width) and shouldn’t be a distraction to the performance. Bows should be worn in a manner to minimize risk for the participants”
I read this as 3” wide ribbon being the maximum size you can use, but I've had people say the 3” would be illegal. I was just wondering what's everyone take on this is?

We used 3 in. this past season, but saw several teams with much larger bows some looked like they were going to take over the head! I personally like large bows but I don't think I would even try anything over 3 inches
with that said I don't think they mean 3 inches would be against the rules but I guess we will see, with all the new rules about uniforms this year you never know what they will throw at us next!

I didn't read that as a rule (like the new no crop tops rule) but more as a part of their image guidelines. If it is being read as a "rule" I would interpret it as saying 3" bows and under are still legal, anything larger than a 3" width would be in violation.

Many of my teams this year were requesting the 4" wide ribbon, so these would be out.

What is USASF? I googled but several things came up. We do cheer but this doesn't sound familiar.

Thanks. This is the begining of our second season of cheer so I'm still learning. We did gymnastic for six years so this is a whole different world.

I don't make cheer bows but based on what you quoted it says bows no wider than 3" which means 3" is the maximum considered acceptable. But it also says should not instead of a more definite wording like may not and goes on to say generally which makes it sound like depending on how the bow looks, larger than 3" may be acceptable as well. If this is a rule it is poorly worded. jmo

As far as the whole "safety" thing goes I'm pretty sure they mean to not have the tails of the bows covering peoples eyes. I don't see any reason to stop producing 3" bows, though.
