Rowan's Law


WORA fully supports the intent of Rowan’s Law  to improve concussion safety in amateur competitive sport.

 

What is Rowan’s Law?

Rowan’s Law was named for Rowan Stringer, a high school rugby player from Ottawa, who died in the spring of 2013 from a condition known as second impact syndrome (swelling of the brain caused by a subsequent injury that occurred before a previous injury healed). Rowan is believed to have experienced three concussions over six days while playing rugby. She had a concussion but didn’t know her brain needed time to heal. Neither did her parents, teachers or coaches.

Rowan’s Law and Rowan’s Law Day were established to honour her memory and bring awareness to concussions and concussion safety. (Source: https://www.ontario.ca/page/rowans-law-day)

Rowan’s Law came into effect on July 1, 2019.
