ROWAN’S LAW - FOR ANY PARTICIPANTS UNDER THE AGE OF 26
I will help prevent concussions by:
Wearing the proper equipment for my sport and wearing it correctly.
Developing my skills and strength so that I can participate to the best of my ability. Respecting the rules of my sport or activity.
My commitment to fair play and respect for all (respecting other athletes, coaches, team trainers and officials).
I will care for my health and safety by taking concussions seriously, and I understand that:
A concussion is a brain injury that can have both short- and long-term effects.
A blow to my head, face or neck, or a blow to the body that causes the brain to move around inside the skull may cause a concussion.
I don’t need to lose consciousness to have had a concussion.
I have a commitment to concussion recognition and reporting, including self-reporting of
possible concussion and reporting to a designated person when and individual suspects that another individual may have sustained a concussion. (Meaning: If I think I might have a concussion I should stop participating in further training, practice or competition immediately, or tell an adult if I think another athlete has a concussion.)
Continuing to participate in further training, practice or competition with a possible concussion increases my risk of more severe, longer lasting symptoms, and increases my risk of other injuries.
I will not hide concussion symptoms. I will speak up for myself and others.

I will not hide my symptoms. I will tell a coach, official, team trainer, parent or another adult I trust if I experience any symptoms of concussion.
If someone else tells me about concussion symptoms, or I see signs they might have a concussion, I will tell a coach, official, team trainer, parent or another adult I trust so they can help.
I understand that if I have a suspected concussion, I will be removed from sport and that I will not be able to return to training, practice or competition until I undergo a medical assessment by a medical doctor or nurse practitioner and have been medically cleared to return to training, practice or competition.

I will take the time I need to recover, because it is important for my health.(I will have to follow my medical care-giver’s Return-to-Sport Protocol.)
I understand I will have to be medically cleared by a medical doctor or nurse practitioner before returning to lessons, practice or competition.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS RELEASE AGREEMENT AND I AM AWARE THAT BY SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT I AM WAIVING CERTAIN LEGAL RIGHTS WHICH I OR MY HEIRS, NEXT OF KIN, EXECUTORS, ADMINISTRATORS, ASSIGNS AND REPRESENTATIVES MAY HAVE AGAINST THE RELEASEES.
