Rowan’s Law came into effect in 2020.   This legislation is named in memory of Rowan Stringer who tragically died in 2013 of Second Impact Syndrome, the result of suffering multiple concussions playing rugby three times in six days.  There are new measures being taken by the Ontario Government to ensure that players registered in organized sports are aware of the concussion legislation and protocols, which have been designed to create a safer environment for competitive amateur athletes, children and youth to play sport.  Knowing how to recognize the signs and symptoms of a concussion, and what to do if a concussion happens – whether you are an athlete, a student, a parent, a coach, a team trainer, an official or an educator – saves lives. 


ALL registrations will be subject to the requirements of the new legislation. Rowan’s Law has been passed to ensure that all athletes under 26 years of age; parents of athletes under 18 years of age; and all team coaches/ staff/ officials confirm annually that they have reviewed Ontario’s Concussion Awareness resources.


Under Rowan's Law, before any player can be registered with the Grimsby Town Youth Soccer Club and Ontario Soccer, the player (and the parent or legal guardian of the player if the player is under 18 years of age), must review one of the Concussion Education Resources provided by the Province of Ontario. A link to these resources is provided here.  Please copy and paste this link to open in a separate window:

MANDATORY Province of Ontario Concussion Education Resources:

There are also links to Rowan's Law documents by applicable division on our website.

Rowan’s Law is a multi-level awareness for every sport so the documents that need to be reviewed can be done for multiple sports, but all players or guardians must sign a soccer waiver confirming that they have reviewed the Rowan’s Law resources every year at registration.  

While the legislation is only applicable to players under the age of 26, in the interests of player safety and best practices, the Grimsby Town Youth Soccer Club will require ALL players (or their parent/guardian if they are under 18 years of age) to review and sign off on the requirements of the legislation.

I / we further acknowledge understanding the nature and risk of concussion and head injury to athletes, including the risks of continuing to play after a concussion or head injury is suspected.
