The NFHS rules have nothing preventing someone from playing through stitches. I would seriously doubt that New York has anything either. Someone from NY will certainly come along soon and tell us for certain around that location.

Although by dominion he might play, I would certainly question the wisdom of permitting this perkid to play especially in a sensitive location like the lips. Let the injury heal- Is tright here a licapability concern if the kid reinjures it? Only a qualified attorney in our jurisdiction have the right to tell you that one.... however if it were me I think the boy would sit a pair even more days...

I asked my uncle on this, and also while he isn"t a sports legislation specialist or anypoint, he didn"t think tbelow would be anymore licapacity than if a kid with an apshowed knee brace was playing and also hurt his previously torn ACL. Essentially he related the knee brace to the stitches, and also while I"m certain someone will come along and also say that is apples to oranges (being in the clinical area I agree to an degree that they are different), however in a legal sense my uncle sassist they might both be explained as medical devices provided to assist in the healing of an injury. He did eventually decide that a better analogy would certainly be playing via a band-assist. How many would certainly keep a boy through a band-aid over a cut from playing so lengthy as blood wasn"t oozing from under it?As was currently shelp, the rules do not prohilittle it, and I"m as well worried around it from a clinical standsuggest (the child isn"t going to die if he re-opens up the injury), and now I have actually a semi-legal backing. I say let he kid play.
