ROWAN'S LAW:

  • The new Rowan's Law legislation in Ontario requires that any athlete under the age of 26, coaches and parents/guardians of athletes under the age of 18 review concussion documentation prior to registering and participating in an event. Please ask your team members, coaches and parents/guardians to review the new concussion awareness guide published by the province of Ontario. The links can be found below. Our event will follow these guidelines in the case of any incident that might appear to lead to a concussion. You and your team will be required to sign a confirmation that you have reviewed the information and the OCC's Concussion Code of Conduct on your arrival at the Club.
  • If you have any questions about Rowan's Law or the Oakville Curling Club's concussion policies, please contact Chris at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
