Rowan’s Law legislation was passed by the Ontario Government in 2018. The legislation is designed to create a safer environment for competitive amateur athletes, children and youth to play sport. The legislation is named in memory of Ontario rugby player Rowan Stringer who died tragically in 2013 at just 17 years of age of Second Impact Syndrome, the result of suffering multiple concussions playing rugby three times in six days. Rowan’s Law is applicable to 65 sports in Ontario, including artistic swimming, as well as educational institutions.
Knowing how to recognize the signs and symptoms of a concussion, and what to do if a concussion happens, whether you’re an athlete, a parent, a coach, or an official puts concussion safety information in the hands of people who need it most and saves lives.
