OWHA Rowan's Law UPDATE
Submitted By Katie Fewchuk on Wednesday, January 12, 2022
There have been updates to Rowan's Law that went into effect January 1, 2022. Please read the detailed article attached. Teams will be briefed on the updated protocol and the responsibilities they have to identify one person who will be in charge of the Removal/Return to Sport documentation and reporting all concussions or suspected concussions to SFHA, OWHA/Hockey Canada. All related forms are found on the OWHA website.

WHAT THIS MEANS FOR OWHA and SFHA

1) The Removal From Sport and Return to Sport Protocols are already in place for OWHA members. Please continue to follow the OWHA materials for these Protocols.

2) NEW: Identify a designated person(s) as having specific responsibilities under the Removal/Return-to-Sport protocols. This means that OWHA Member Associations/Teams are required to designate a specific individual who meets all OWHA requirements, to be in attendance at all sanctioned games, practices and activities to be responsible for implementing these Protocols. It is important to remember that, if there is any doubt, the individual is to be removed from participation and/or not be permitted to return to participate.

3) This material is posted on the OWHA web site and sent by email to OWHA Member contacts. It is important that OWHA Members share this information with all participants.

4) OWHA Members are required to report all concussions and suspected concussions to the OWHA on the OWHA/Hockey Canada injury form.
