Is your club interested in winning a $1000 sports grant?

Show your commitment to mouthguards in junior football for a chance to win one of three grants courtesy of the Australian Dental Association (ADA).

Sporting accidents are one of the most common causes of dental injury and every year thousands of people, including children, are treated for dental injuries that could have been avoided or minimised by wearing a protective, custom fitted mouthguard… Yet only 36 per cent of children aged 5 to 17 wear a mouthguard while playing contact sport!

You could be rewarded simply for demonstrating to the ADA how your club is committed to protecting the teeth of junior footballers!

Details on the ADA competition can be found here: Opens external link in new windowhttp://www.mouthguardawareness.info/competition.html.

Good luck!
