Rowan's Law (Zurich Minor Hockey)

PrintRowan's Law
Please note that no player will be allowed on the ice until this requirement is met. 

On July 1, 2019 Rowan's Law Act and Regulations came into effect. What is Rowan's Law?

This legislation is named in memory of Rowan Stringer, a 17-year old Ottawa rugby player who tragically passed away from sustaining multiple concussions resulting in a catastrophic swelling of the brain – second impact syndrome.  

On March 7, 2018, Ontario passed Rowan's Law (Concussion Safety), 2018 and related amendments to the Education Act. However, it is important to understand that this also applies to all Sport Organizations, schools, programs and businesses in the province.  

The purpose of Rowan's Law is to create concussion awareness and provide safe sport participation.  

This requires that all players/parents and team officials read the Rowan's Law information package and provide a signed acknowledgement form before they can participate in any on ice activities. Please print off and have signed copies of the Acknowledgement Form ready for your child's first ice time. 

If you have multiple players, it is required that you fill out one form PER player, NOT per family.

Acknowledgement forms for each participant will be held on file by the Association. 

Below you can find the Awareness Resource information as well as the Acknowledgement form that must be signed and returned.
