On July 1, 2019, new rules came into effect through Rowan’s Law, to improve concussion safety in amateur competitive sport in Ontario.
If you are an OLA athlete under 26 years of age, the parent of an athlete under 18, a coach, a team trainer or a game official, you need to follow the rules of Rowan’s Law, which includes:
- Review the Ontario's official Concussion Awareness Resources before registering or serving with the Ontario Lacrosse Association; and
- Review the Ontario Lacrosse Association's Concussion Code of Conduct that is provided to you; and
- Confirm that you have reviewed both of these resources every year with the Ontario Lacrosse Association.
