Toowoomba Grammar School

**Cricket – Helmet Compliance**

Dear Cricket Community,

As mentioned in 2019, TGS will be abiding by the new Helmet regulations being enforced for the 2020 season and beyond.

This requirement is happening as a result of policy changes being implemented by the ICC, Cricket Australia and Queensland Cricket to improve the level of protection provided by helmets.

It is a mandatory requirement for all boys to wear a helmet and it is an expectation that each boy owns their own helmet. 

If your son already owns a helmet, it is an expectation that it meets these new guidelines. Please note that some helmets currently used do not meet the new standards, and all players should verify when purchasing new helmets that they comply with the new requirements. For those boys requiring helmets, please visit the website of our sponsors, Keith Dudgeon Cricket Specialist.

If you are unsure whether your helmet is compliant, click Compliant Helmets.

Before our Round 1 clash with BGS, your son’s coach will ensure your son has met these guidelines.

This mandate is a good thing in terms of ensuring the safety of your son playing this sport.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.

Kind regards,

Ben Schuhmacher
