Concussion Awareness Resources
As of July 1st, 2019, the new rules requiring the review of Concussion Awareness Resources and Concussion Codes of Conduct came into effect. Curling centres are LEGALLY required to comply.
Rowan's Law, 2018 makes it mandatory for sports organizations to:
Ensure that athletes under 26 years of age, parents of athletes under 18, coaches, team trainers and officials confirm every year that they have reviewed Ontario's Concussion Awareness Resources
Establish a Concussion Code of Conduct that sets out rules of behaviour to support concussion prevention
Establish a Removal-from-Sport and Return-to-Sport protocol
Here at the Idylwylde, we have adopted the Code of Conduct provided by the Ontario Curling Council for both athletes and coaches/trainers.

Below are the Concussion Awareness Resources that all athletes under 26 years of age, parents of athletes under 18, coaches, team trainers and officials must review. These resources have been organized by age category.
