Mouth Guards

Niagara Park Dockers JAFC recommends that all players wear Mouth Guards in competitive and contact sports.

The Club recommends that when players reach the Under 9's age group, mouth guards should be worn. Although physical contact is minimal, there is always the chance of accidental contact to the face and mouth area.

In the more compeitive age groups from Under 12's, the Club insists on mouth guards being worn at training and during games.

For more information please visit the Australian Dental Association web site on Mouth Guard Awarness.

A different Perspective - as found on Nick Maxwells website

By Nick Maxwell

Are you what you would consider a knowledgable football follower? You know team tactics, you’re a specialist on key stats and across the different roles played by each player across a team?

I want to give you a different perspective.

The spark for this article came when I heard Darren Milburn interviewed in the lead-up to the Cats’ game with the Gold Coast. When asked about ex teammate Gary Ablett, he said they would have to give him some attention and stated “we know he likes those little ones around the back so we’ll have to stop them.” I don’t know if it was a tongue in cheek stab at an old mate, or a genuine crack at his ex-teammate. If I had to guess I would say it would have been the former.
