MOUTHGUARDS ARE MANDATORY
It is mandatory for all players in all age grades up to and including minor to wear mouth guards in all practice sessions and games. It will become the responsibility of each player to ensure that they are wearing mouth guards as failure to comply will result in the player being sent from the field until they satisfy the rules.
Players will not be covered under the injury fund if they are not wearing a mouth guard. For further details check out our website www.tipperaryladiesfootball.ie
