I don’t want to sound like a broken record or even say “I told you so” but mouth-guards are now mandatory for ALL players in all age grades, in all Gaelic football practice sessions and games.
- Gaelic footballers in all age grades must wear a mouth-guard from January 1st 2014
- It is the responsibility of each individual player to use a mouthguard
- A properly fitted mouthguard is the best available protective device for reducing the incidence and severity of sports-related dental injuries
- Players can be sent-off in a game for not wearing a mouthguard
- Players will not be covered under the GAA player injury scheme if they don’t comply with the mouthguard rule
- No Mouthguard? No Game
Can all players please ensure they wear a mouth-guard at all training sessions and competitive matches.
