 Rowan's Law - Mandatory Acknowledgement Form prior to Participation of players/coaching staff




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 mandatory– it is legislation (Ontario Regulation 161/19) from the Government of Ontario.


All Registrants registering July 1, 2019 or after must have completed the review information and acknowledgement prior to registration/participation in hockey.


All Team Officials currently registered will be required to complete the review of information and acknowledgement prior to September 5th, 2019.  

All Registrants registered prior to July 1, 2019 must complete the review of information and acknowledgement prior to participation in their first game.  

Please read the information below on Rowan's Law and the legislative requirements:
