Mouthguards

It will not be long before the winter sport season is upon us, or at least the commencement of training, and with this in mind it is time to again think of mouthguards. The College strongly recommends that all students wear mouthguards for both training and competition in all contact sports. A custom fitted mouthguard will not only protect teeth but has also been proven to reduce the incidence of oral soft tissue injury, jaw fracture, neck injuries and concussions. Parents are welcome to make private arrangements however for those who prefer, the College is able to offer the following service:

A highly experienced dental prosthetist from Galadent will be attending the school on Wednesday 19 - Thursday 20 February (Years 10, 11 and 12) and again Monday 24 - Tuesday 25 February (Years 8 and 9) to take dental impressions of those students who wish to avail themselves of this offer. The mouthguards will then be made up and distributed to the boys later in the term.

It is essential that both attachments to this newsletter concerning mouthguards are completed in full and returned to the College by Friday 14 February. NO late forms will be accepted. DO NOT include payment details as requested in Step 3 of the order form - merely complete the second attachment "Mouthguard Permission Form" and the cost will be charged directly to your school account.
