Rowan's Law Acknowledgement
Submitted By Brett Bickerton on Saturday, August 3, 2019
Effective July 1st, 2019 the Ontario Government has implemented “Rowan’s Law”.  This is a concussion awareness law that requires the participant and at least one parent to review the concussion awareness resources and complete the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF) acknowledgement form that they have done so.  All Bench staff (Coaches, Trainers & Managers) are required to complete one as well.

WMHA is asking that this form is completed by all participants who are currently registered by August 15th. Please note that this is a requirement of the OHF and your child will not be able to participate in any WMHA related activities until this form has been completed.
New registrants will be required to complete the form at time of registration.

With this new electronic form and acknowledgement, the concussion forms that were required previously for some age groups are no longer required.

The resources and acknowledgement can be found here.

Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.
