Are USPL players allowed to wear slider shorts at events?

When reading the USPL rules it doesn't say that you can wear slider shorts all it says is groin protection, so does that mean you can't or can wear slider shorts since you can insert a cup into them?

At en event last year (forget which one), they made a team strip all the way down to their boxers and socks. Perhaps they might've gotten a tip that they were wearing excessive layers or something, I don't know. But, I'd maybe post this in Paintball Refs/Rules, in PBTalk. There are quite a few former NPPL refs that post there.

probably refs discretion on what you wear but i would guess that sliders count as groin protection

no way would I strip down to my boxers. Id let them check to see if I had extra layers, but making someone strip is excessive.

standard groin protection(like an athletic up) is not allowed because they end up doing more harm than good, they're made for an upright sport like baseball, soccer, football, not a sport where you're crawling or on your knees 3/4 of the game.

most paintball made slider shorts have a thick pad(much to the same material as elbow and knee pads are made of) for groin protection, pants also have a pad in place there as well.

Paintball players shouldn't procreate. They're hoping to thin out the gene pool a bit.

As a former NPPL ref, none of us ever checked for slider shorts so YES they are allowed.

go ahead. im pretty sure your allowed to wear boxers under your pants. (if not, i guess im in big trouble) so i dont see why you wouldnt be allowed to wear sliding shorts as underwear.
