Concussion Awareness

Ontario is a national leader in concussion management and prevention. Rowan’s Law (Concussion Safety), 2018 makes it mandatory for sports organizations to:

  1. ensure that athletes under 26 years of age, parents of athletes under 18, coaches, team trainers and officials confirm every year that they have reviewed Ontario’s Concussion Awareness Resources
  2. establish a Concussion Code of Conduct that sets out rules of behaviour to support concussion prevention
  3. establish a Removal-from-Sport and Return-to-Sport protocol
