WORA Injury Reporting Tool

The safety and well-being of our members is paramount. Just a reminder to our bench staff to ensure that all significant injuries are reported. To do this, a Sports Injury Form (located under Association – Important Documents – Forms) must be submitted to our VP and Secretary, as well as to the ORA.

In order to help with the process, we are pleased to introduce a new injury reporting tool (“Report Player Injury” – found under the Association tab).

The tool is designed to:

  • help our members to report an injury while the details are fresh in their minds;
  • open up reporting to all of our members – parents and relatives of players can also use the tool to report injuries; and
  • help the Executive to have more insight into injuries that are happening within our association.

NOTE: Using the new West Ottawa Ringette reporting tool does not replace the need to complete the “Sports Injury Form”. Bench staff are responsible for ensuring this form is completed (within 48 hours) whenever a significant injury occurs.

Please be sure to follow our Return From Injury policy regarding return to play following a significant injury.

If you have any questions, please contact our VP or Secretary.
