Mouth Guards - OMHA Policy (2018 Re-Post)
Submitted By Michael Kelly on Sun 10 13, 19
Several questions about mouth guards have come up lately so I thought I would post the OMHA policy to use as a reference.

>> Mouth Guards need to worn by all players (including the Pre-School, IP, and Tyke players) during all on ice activities.  Trainers & Coaches should ensure this policy is adhered to.

>> Mouths Guards can be any colour but cannot be clear or translucent.

17.5 Mouth Guards (Page 160)
All OMHA players are required to wear a mouth guard while playing in games or practices. (See Policies and Proceduares 2.4.4).  When a player fails to properly wear a mouth guard while on the ice during a game, he shall be assessed a misconduct penalty.



2.4.4 Mouth Guards (Page 196)
The use of a mouth guard product for each player participating in an Ontario Minor Hockey Association game or practice is mandatory.  Players shall at all times while engaged in play or practices, practice drills, or scrimmages on the ice surface wear an intraoral mouth guard that conforms to the specifications set out by the Association as approved as suitable for use by the team's Trainer.
