CROKE PARK STANCE ON THE WEARING OF GUM SHIELDS IN ALL FOOTBALL COMPETITIONS

1. Does the new rule regarding the wearing of Gum Shields apply to Cumann na mBunscol games?

Since players participating in Cumann Na mBunscol are minor, the rules are applicable to them. It is mandatory for Gaelic football only.

2. If so, who is responsible for ensuring that they should be worn?

In general it is a matter for each Club to ensure this, however, 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.

3. If a child is injured during a Cumann na mBunscol match and is not wearing a gum shield, is s/he covered by insurance?

Players injured during a Cumann na mBunscol match will not be covered under the player injury scheme if they are not wearing a mouthguard.
