OWFL highly recommends the use of goggles at all ages divisions for safety. It is the intent of the OWFL to phase in mandatory goggles for U9, U11 and U13 in the 2021 season. Some OWFL clubs have proactively mandated goggles at all age divisions, Northmen have mandated googles for all house league players.
All players, including the goalkeeper, must properly wear a professionally manufactured mouth guard that fully covers the upper teeth. The mouth guard shall be of any readily visible colour other than colourless or white and must not have graphics of teeth. Mouth guards must not be altered to decrease protection and field players must remove protruding tabs.
Change this year so that most sticks are now 'legal' - not many considered 'illegal'.
