IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Rowan's Law
Submitted By Jane Sedo on Monday, September 30, 2019
In June of 2016 the Ontario Legislature passed Rowan's Law; this legislation is designed to protect amateur athletes and educate coaches about the dangers of head injuries.  This legislation is effective July, 1st 2019 and will impact all WMHA players, coaches and parents this season. 






*All WMHA players must review the resources and complete the acknowledgement form to participate this season.

The OHF requires all WMHA players, coaches and parents to verify they have received and reviewed the OHF Concussion Code of Conduct and the Concussion Awareness Resources provided by the Government of Ontario. Players, coaches and parents must commit to operating within the parameters of the OHF Concussion Code of Conduct.
