Rowan’s Law: Concussion safety
Submitted By Martin Steele on Tuesday, September 3, 2019
To all KMHA families - The Ontario Government has passed a law recently called "Rowan's Law", pertaining to concussions in sport. In doing so, the OHF and its member partners have introduced a new requirement effective immediately.

Every player (and a parent if the player is under 18 years of age) must review the age-appropriate Rowan's Law Concussion Awareness information and provide a completed acknowledgement form to their coach before they step on the ice for the 2019/2020 hockey season. No player will be allowed on the ice unless they have provided their coach with a completed acknowledgement form. There can not be, and will not be, ANY EXCEPTIONS.
