Mouthguard Policy

A recent review of policies by Skate Australia (SA) and Inline Hockey Australia (ILHA) has confirmed that ll players aged 18 years and under, as of the 1st January of that particular year, must wear a mouthguard whilst engaging in inline hockey training, games, competitions, tournaments etc. Goalkeepers are excluded from this ruling however mouthguards are highly recommended in the interest of player safety.

E. All players, except goalkeepers, participating in a Junior Division or 18 and Under Division must wear a mouth guard regardless of their age. (i.e. a player who turns 19 years of age on January 2nd must still wear the cage for that year if he plays in the Junior or 18 and Under division). All players 18 years of age and under must wear a mouth guard irrespective of the age division they are playing. For players 19 years and over, playing in a senior division, a mouth guard is optional, but highly recommended.

Please be aware that all junior players (Goal Keepers excluded) will be required to wear mouthguards at all VIHO sanctioned events including the upcoming State Championships being held at “The Zone” in Bendigo on Sunday 20th May 2018. Non-compliance will result in the inability to take to the rink until a mouthguard is being worn.
