Rowan’s Law concussion awareness rules came into effect in the Province of Ontario on July 1, 2019. After that date, sports organizations must not register athletes under 26 years of age into a sports activity unless they, as well as their parent (for athletes under 18), provide confirmation that they have reviewed one of the Concussion Awareness Resources (see below) within the previous twelve months.
Links to the documents which must be reviewed are listed below and are based on the age of the player being registered:
As part of the registration process, all players, coaches or parents of players must acknowledge having reviewed the above concussion awareness information. Participants will be blocked from registering until they acknowledge. Please review the information prior to starting the registration process.
