Organization - Rowan's Law - Concussion Protocol
Submitted By James Hindle on Tuesday, August 13, 2019
On July 1st, 2019, Rowan's Law (Concussion Safety) came into effect.  

IMPORTANT:  Before any participant can take part in any activity associated with North London Hockey they must have read the age-appropriate information about Rowan's Law and concussion awareness and have signed the Ontario Hockey Federation acknowledgement form.  If they are under 18, a parent must also sign the acknowledgement form.  

Coaches will not let any participant on the ice for any tryout, practice, or game until a signed acknowledgement form is received by the organization.

This new law requires all sports organizations to:
  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 required to be in place before the 2019/2020 season. 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 along with a confirmation form that you have reviewed the government's resource in accordance with the legislation. 
--> Rowan's Law - Ages 10 and Under 
--> Rowan's Law - Ages 11 to 14 
--> Rowan's Law - Ages 15 and Up

Once you have reviewed the appropriate e-booklet above, sign the Ontario Hockey Federation Rowan’s Law Acknowledgement Form and email the scanned form in .jpg, .png, or .pdf format to [email protected] with the name of the participant as the subject line.
