IMPORTANT: Rowan's Law Acknowledgement Form
Submitted By Nathan McAnsh on Tuesday, August 6, 2019
The below information is very important!! As per the Ontario Hockey Federation and the Government of Ontario every player, parent, bench staff, and on-ice volunteer must complete this requirement or they will not be allowed to participate in the upcoming 2019/2020 season!

The Ontario Government has enacted Rowan’s Law (Concussion Safety), 2018, S.O. 2018, c. 1 (“Act”). Ontario Regulation 161/19, the Act requires all sport organizations as defined in the Regulation (“Sports Organization”), which includes the Ontario Hockey Federation (“OHF”), to have a Concussion Code of Conduct. This Concussion Code of Conduct must require participants, as set out in the Act, to review the Ontario Government’s issued Concussion Awareness Resources on an annual basis. A participant is subject to a Concussion Code of Conduct for each Sports Organization a participant registers with.

The Ontario Hockey Federation has been working with Hockey Canada on the implementation of Rowan’s Law since the adoption of the Rowan’s Law Concussion Safety on March 7, 2018. The Ontario Hockey Federation is in full support of the intent of Rowan’s Law to create awareness of concussion, change the culture on concussion and provide safe sport participation.

The Ontario Hockey Federation was informed by the Ministry of Tourism Culture and Sport that every Player, Team Official and On-Ice Official (parent as well if individual under 18) in order to register/participate must review the OHF Concussion Code of Conduct and the appropriate Concussion Awareness Resources.  

Requirements:
  • All Registrants registering July 1, 2019 or after must have completed the review information and acknowledgement prior to registration/participation.
  • All Team Officials currently registered will be required to complete the review of information and acknowledgement prior to August 30, 3019.
  • All Registrants registered prior to July 1, 2019 must complete the review of information and acknowledgement prior to participation in the first game.

Applicable age appropriate Concussion Awareness Resources are located at www.ontario.ca/concussions or by clicking the links below for the age appropriate resource. The OHF Concussion Code of Conduct and the appropriate Concussion Awareness Resources must be reviewed before you can register/participate in the OHF.

Resources:
 
It is mandatory that you review the resource and complete the acknowledgement form before yo can participate in the upcoming season!!

Once you have read the resource (links above) please visit https://orhc.sportskeeper.org/forms/rowans-law/ to complete and submit the acknowledgement form. Please note, in the acknowledgement form to "sign" your name simply type your name in to the signature box.
