Rowan’s Law compliance


The 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.

 

Furthermore, sports organizations must also not allow coaches, team trainers and officials to serve as a coach, team trainer or official for or in respect of the sports organization unless they provide confirmation that they have reviewed one of the Concussion Awareness Resources, every year.

When registering a player in our league you will be required to confirm your compliance with the above-noted requirement through the use of a waiver declaration.
