Rowan’s Law was passed in 2018 in the Province of Ontario, making it a leader across Canada for raising awareness around concussions and making sports safer for children.
Any participant under the age of 26 who registers to be a member of a speed skating club and the Ontario Speed Skating Association after July 1st 2019 needs to do the following two things:
1. Confirm they have read a Ministry Approved Concussion Awareness Resource and
2. Confirm they have reviewed, and committed to, the Ontario Speed Skating Concussion Code of Conduct.
Both of these requirements will need to be confirmed on a yearly basis.
Below please find links to the Concussion Awareness Resources and the Athlete Code of Conduct waivers. Please ensure that you and your athlete have read the resources before you register for the season.
