Rowan's Law
Submitted By Josh Pinese on Friday, September 6, 2019
OHF MANDITORY REQUIREMENT
The Ontario government in conjunction with all youth sports organizations, is rolling out the Rowan's Law initiative to help our youth and their parents better understand what a concussion is, how to identify a concussion, and how to safely treat and return to play after sustaining a concussion.



All registered players, coaches, bench staff, and parents(If the participant is under the age of the 18) are required to read and complete the Rowan's Law Acknowledgement form as per the OHF and OMHA. Failure to comply will result in the removal of your child or volunteer until completed. 

Government of Ontario Concussion Awareness Resource E-Booklet

This e-booklet will help you learn more about concussions so you can keep yourself and others active and safe — whether you’re an athlete, student, parent, coach, official or educator.

Download/review by clicking on your child's age appropriate e-booklet, you may print a copy for reference.

Ages 10 and Under

Ages 11-14

Ages 15 and Up

Once you have reviewed your child's age appropriate e-booklet, follow these instructions; 

1. Download the Acknowledgement Form and save as a PDF(you can not edit while in your web browser)
    Rowans Law Acknowledgement Form
2. Complete the Acknowledgement Form and "save as" Last Name_First Name_Date of Birth(yyyy-mm-dd) of player or volunteer that completed the e-booklet
    Example: Doe_John_2019-08-20.

Once you have re-saved it, please submit it back to us via the link below. 

https://wmha.net/Forms/1854/

We at Windsor Minor treat player safety as priority one. We want all of our members to take some time and educate themselves on concussions so you can better treat and diagnose one in the rare circumstance your child sustains one during play, or anywhere they may endure a head injury.
