Rowan's Law - Concussion Protocol
Submitted By Gordon Whitehead on Saturday, July 13, 2019
   On July 1st, 2019, Rowan's Law (Concussion Safety), 2018 comes into effect.  This new law makes it mandatory for sports organizations to do the following:
1. Ensure that athletes, parents of athletes under 18, coaches and officials confirm every year that they have reviewed Ontario's concussion awareness resources
2. Establish a removal-from-sport (RFS) and return-to-sport (RTS) protocol
3. Establish a concussion code of conduct that sets out rules of behaviour to support concussion prevention
The review of concussion awareness resources and concussion codes of conduct are expected to be in place by July 1, 2019.  The rules for RFS and RTS are expected to be in place by July 1, 2020. The Concussion Awareness Resource e-booklets are available below and further information will be made available by your division's Director shortly.
