REMINDER: Concussions and Rowan's Law

Just a quick reminder to all our registered officials ...

To remain active as a sailing official in Ontario in 2019 after August 30th,  you need to confirm to Ontario Sailing (Regatta Organizing Authorities) that you have reviewed the Ministry Approved Concussion Resources.

There was a 60-day grace period in the law for all sport officials when Rowan's Law was implemented on July 1st which sets an August 30th deadline for all judges and officials.
If you plan on being active after August 30th in Ontario, please ensure that you have read the document located at   https://ontariosailing.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/MTCS-Concussion-Awareness-Resources-15-and-up.pdf and send a quick email to the office ( info@ontariosailing.ca) or reply to this email confirming that you have done so. We will work to ensure regatta organizers are aware on your behalf.

We appreciate your support and understanding in ensuring that the legal requirements are met.

If you have any questions or need further clarification about concussions, please feel free to reach out to Lisa Roddie, COAST Manager at lisa@ontariosailing.ca.

Thank you.
