Rowan's Law
Submitted By Amy Parker on Wed 09 18, 19
As of July 1, 2019, Rowan’s Law requires all sports organizations to:
1.  Ensure all athletes under the age of 26, parents of athletes under the age of 18, coaches, team trainers and team officials confirm EVERY year that they have reviewed Ontario’s Concussion Awareness Resources.
2.  Establish a Concussion Code of Conduct that sets out rules of behaviour to support concussion prevention.
3.  Establish a Removal-from-Sport and Return-to-Sport protocol. Ontario’s Concussion Awareness Resources are age specific so each acknowledgement form is based on the current age of the player.


Ontario’s Concussion Awareness Resources are age specific so each acknowledgement form is based on the current age of the player.  The age groups are: 10 and Under, 11-14, and 15 and Older.  The resources developed by the government of Ontario allow parents/guardians to use the age appropriate information to have a conversation with their players about concussion prevention, diagnosis, treatment, as well as, return-to-school and return-to-play protocols.

The acknowledgement forms MUST be returned to YOUR COACH once assigned to a team.  There will be no exceptions.  You may print off the form(s) yourself or request one from MFMH.  Players currently going through tryouts will be required to complete the form and return it to their coach once they are assigned to a team.  Players need to return this to their coaches before they are allowed on the ice for games.  

 
There is a form to be printed and signed by both parents and players after reading.
