Please be informed of the new policy from the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport regarding ROWAN'S LAW. The final regulation is currently available for print or download at RINGETTE ONTARIO, as well as www.Ontario.ca/concussions. To summarize:

2) Between July 1st, but no later than August 30th, 2019, Ringette Ontario associations/teams must not permit individuals to serve as coaches, officials and team trainers in Ringette activities that includes any athlete under 26 years of age**, unless the individual gives Ringette Ontario association/teams confirmation in the calendar year, but before the first time they serve in that position in the year, that they have reviewed the Minister approved Concussion Awareness Resources within 12 months before the confirmation is given.

3) This law also requires all registered players under the age of 26 (including parents for players under the age of 18), as well as all coaches, trainers and officials to sign their designated sports Concussion Code of Conduct. 

RINGETTE ONTARIO has established a Concussion Policy and Concussion Code of Conduct (for Athletes, and Bench Staff), that satisfies the requirements set out in the regulations.
