Rowan's Law
Submitted By Lindsey Glavaz on Wednesday, July 10, 2019
As of July 1st, 2019 the Ontario government is implementing “Rowan’s Act”; a concussion awareness law that requires at least one parent to complete the Ontario Hockey Federation Acknowledgement Form, before their child may participate in this season.

What this means for ALL parents:

 

If you have already registered your child for the 2019/20 season, you will need to complete the Ontario Hockey Federation Rowan’s Law Acknowledgement Form. You can complete our online form by CLICKING HERE.

If you have not yet registered your child, you will be prompted to do so upon registration. 

 

Please note that this is a requirement and not optional. Your child will not be able to participate until the acknowledgement form has been completed. The GMHA thanks parents and volunteers for their co-operation in this matter.

 

For more information on this decision, please see the attached letter from our president:
