Mouthguards and Protective Clothing
Many sports governing bodies, including the Rugby Football Union and the English Hockey Association, recommend the use of mouthguards that are fitted by dentists. The school, in liaison with the mouthguard suppliers O-PRO, arranges for dentists to visit at the end of the Summer Term. Although Year 3 boys play only Touch Rugby they do play Hockey for which they will need a mouthguard.
In rugby it is now legal for players of any age to wear protective head and shoulder pads as long as they comply with RFU regulations. At St John's we do not feel that this equipment is necessary for boys of Prep school age. You are welcome should you wish to buy protective clothing (with the appropriate kite-marks) but please don't feel it is essential equipment for your son.

Games Kit - Summer Term

• White polo/cricket shirt
• White socks
• Tracksuit top and bottoms

• Cricket jumper (required if in a team)
• Cricket trousers (required if in a team)

The school provides the basic equipment required to play cricket. However, a cricket sale is held at the end of each Spring term, where used pads, bats, gloves, boots and clothing are sold at very reasonable prices.
