Notice to all Schools- Wearing of Mouthguards

posted 16 Jan 2013, 06:47 by Unknown user

From January 1st 2013, all Second Level players will be required to wear a mouthguard in all football games and at practice sessions, in this case it is a matter for each School to ensure the rule is adhered to at training or practice sessions. To avoid a scenario whereby children may forget their mouthguard, the GAA recommends that Schools purchase a reserve of stock mouthguards. If a player refuses to comply with a Referee’s instruction to wear a mouthguard, he will initially be cautioned by the Referee and if the player continues to refuse, the Referee can send him off.


Do players have to wear a mouthguard in hurling games?
No. The new rule only applies to football; however, wearing a mouthguard when playing hurling does reduce the risk of dental injury.
