Rowan's Law Education Available
The much anticipated Rowan's Law education is now available on the website under the tab "Hockey Education."

Rowan's Law education is mandatory for all participants, parents, coaches, trainers and managers. The education is intended to give all involved in sport, information about concussions. It outlines what a concussion is, how it can occur, and what symptoms you may expect. It also outlines the series of events that should take place, once a participant has been diagnosed with a concussion.

You can find the appropriate education on the home page under the "Hockey Education" tab. Once there, you can click on the appropriate age category for your child and review the information with your child. Parents can also review the version for persons over the age 15.

Once you've reviewed the the appropriate material, please print off the "acknowledgment form." You will need to co-sign your child's form if they are under the age of 18. Adults are required to sign a separate form once they have reviewed the education.

Once you have signed your form, you can submit the form in one of two ways.
1. Drop it off at M & M meats (Aylmer Location)
2. Take a picture of the form, and email to [email protected]

Please be advised, that your child cannot play in a game until this task is complete. Hockey Canada's rules. So please complete the training as soon as you can, as the hockey season is approaching quickly.
Sponsors
Tim Hortons
The Timbits Minor Sports Program is a community-oriented sponsorship program for children four to eight years old who participate in local house league sports teams. The program's philosophy is not based on winning or losing - but on learning a new sport, making new friends, and just taking time out to be a kid. Tim Hortons currently sponsors over 200,000 children who play on hockey, soccer, lacrosse, t-ball, baseball and ringette teams across Canada and in the United States. Each sponsored team is supplied with Timbits Minor Sports jerseys or T-shirts. Timbits hockey teams are often given the opportunity to play on-ice scrimmages during intermissions at Junior, American Hockey League (AHL) and National Hockey League (NHL) games.
