Rowan's Law (Concussion Safety)

The Dofasco Minor Hockey League has been advised by the Ontario Government that certain aspects of the Rowan’s Law legislation came into effect on July 1, 2019. 

Rowan’s Law legislation was passed by the Ontario Government in 2018. This legislation is named in memory of Rowan Stringer who tragically died in 2013 of Second Impact Syndrome, the result of suffering multiple concussions. Rowan’s Law is applicable to 65 sports in Ontario as well as educational institutions.  

The legislation requires players, parents, coaches, match officials and trainers to review the Ontario Ministry’s Concussion Awareness Resources AND they must sign off on the Rowan’s Law Acknowledgement Form before they are able to play a game. (Parents & Players – Submit your form to your Head Coach).  


Ontario Ministry’s Concussion Awareness Resources

There are 3 age variations of the Ontario Ministry’s Concussion Awareness Resources that must be reviewed. For example, if a player participates in an Under 13 league, their parents/guardians would need to review and sign off on the Ontario Ministry’s Concussion Awareness Resources for players aged 11 to 14. If a coach coaches an Under 17 or senior team, they would need to review and sign off on the Ontario Ministry’s Concussion Awareness Resources for players aged 15 and above.

The Concussion Awareness Resources also include two Posters.
