This is an URGENT update regarding the legislative requirements under the implementation of Rowan’s Law by the Government of Ontario.
What is Rowan’s Law?Rowan Stringer was a 17-year old Ottawa varsity rugby player who died from sustaining multiple concussions resulting in a catastrophic swelling of the brain – second impact syndrome.
On March 7, 2018, Ontario passed Rowan's Law (Concussion Safety), 2018 and related amendments to the Education Act. However, it is important to understand that this applies to all Sport Organizations, schools, programs and businesses in the province. This is not a hockey ‘thing’ – it is legislation (Ontario Regulation 161/19) from the Government of Ontario.
All players and staff are required to read the Rowan's Law information package and acknowledge having done so before they can take part in the WOAA Senior hockey season.
The link to the information package is here :
All team members and staff will be required to review the information and confirm that they have done so. There is a form included in our online library here : https://clintonradars.com/Libraries/1063/
The forms will also be available at the arena from team staff.
