This is an urgent update regarding the legislative requirements under the implementation of Rowan’s Law by the Government of Ontario. 

Every player, coach and bench staff must have an acknowledgement form filled out and submitted via email before they can be rostered on a team.



What is Rowan's Law? Rowan Stringer was a 17-year old Ottawa varsity rugby player who died 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.
