Mouth Guard Policy

The Caloundra Junior Rugby Union has an existing “No Mouthguard No Play” policy and has had for a number of years.  Players are to wear a mouthguard every time they take the field, this includes training sessions.

Mouthguards can prevent serious injuries such as:

  1. Lacerations to lip, cheek and chin
  2. Fractures of the facial bones especially the check bones and mandible which can cause facial deformity
  3. Possible permanent injury to the jaw joints
  4. Broken teeth
  5. Tooth knocked out or displaced from its socket
  6. Concussions
  7. Cerebral haemorrhages
  8. Incidents of unconsciousness
  9. Neck injuries by helping to avoid situations where the lower jaw gets jammed into the upper jaw
  10. Laceration and bruising of the lips and cheeks, especially for those who wear an orthodontic appliance

All players and parents are made aware of this policy at registration and this policy will be enforced if necessary. Custom made mouthguards give you the best protection. They are more expensive, but it makes it much more comfortable to wear.

Action Mouth Guards attend our registration day so that players can be fitted for and order a custom made mouthguard or you can get them through your dentist.

On Home game days we do sell mouldable mouth guards for those caught short.
