Ontario passed ground-breaking concussion safety legislation this week to protect amateur athletes and make sport safer on the field and at school.
Rowan’s Law (Concussion Safety), 2017 makes Ontario a national leader in concussion management and prevention by establishing mandatory requirements that call for:
– Annual review of concussion awareness resources that prevents, identifies and manages concussions that coaches and educators would be required to review before registering in a sport
– Removal-from-sport and return-to-sport protocols, to ensure that an athlete is immediately removed from sport if they are suspected of having sustained a concussion, giving them the time needed to heal properly
– A concussion code of conduct that would set out rules of behaviour to minimize concussions while playing sport.
The legislation is In honour of Rowan Stringer, a 17-year-old rugby player whose death resulted from sustaining multiple concussions.
And finally, Rebecca Reimer from C-K Sportsxpress Magazine has a special report.
