The CRHL Supports Rowan’s Law

Rowan Stringer loved rugby. A competitive and keen athlete, she was captain of her high school’s team. Tragically, in May 2013, 17-year old Rowan died as the result of head injuries she sustained while playing rugby. In the week before her last game, Rowan was hit twice while playing, likely sustaining a concussion after each blow. Her concussions went unreported, and she continued to play. Rowan suspected something wasn’t right—she texted a friend about her condition and used Google to search for information about concussions. When she was hit again in her final game, Rowan suffered what is known as Second Impact Syndrome—catastrophic swelling caused by a second injury to a brain still healing from previous trauma. Rowan collapsed on the field on May 8, 2013, and died four days later (

Rowan's Law (Concussion Safety), 2018 makes it mandatory for sports organizations to: 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. (

The CRHL is in full support of the Rowan’s Law and its intent to improve concussion awareness. As mandated in the new law, the CRHL now requires all players, parents/guardians, and team officials to take the following two steps:

  1. Review the Ontario government's concussion awareness resources on an annual basis.
  2. Sign the Ontario Hockey Federation’s (OHF) Rowan's Law Acknowledgement form. By signing this form, players, parents & team officials confirm they have:

a) Reviewed the concussion awareness resources;

b) Commit to the OHF Concussion Code of Conduct, which includes helping to prevent concussions, taking concussions seriously, and respecting the OHF removal and return to play protocol.

The CRHL has set the following deadlines:.

  • All CRHL players, parents and officials must complete the review of information & acknowledgement prior to their first scheduled ice time this fall (2019/20 season)
