GTHL recognizes Rowan’s Law Day

On September 27, the Greater Toronto Hockey League recognizes Rowan’s Law Day, highlighting concussion education and strategies to prevent, identify, and manage them.

2 1. What is Rowan’s Law Day? 

Rowan’s Law Day is dedicated to the memory of Rowan Stringer, a young Ottawa rugby player who died tragically in 2013 from the effects of multiple concussions.

Rowan’s Law requires that all coaches and team trainers review the government-approved Concussion Awareness Resources every year before serving in a sport organization or at a school.
