September 25, 2019 is Rowan’s Law Day

In honour of the memory of Rowan Stringer, “Rowan’s Law Day” is commemorated on the last Wednesday in September to raise awareness about concussions in sport.

WORA is committed to the principles of Rowan’s Law and adheres to the Ringette Ontario Concussion Code of Conduct.

Effective this playing season, Rowan’s Law requires all players, parents, and bench staff to confirm that they have reviewed the latest concussion resources and will comply with the Concussion Code of Conduct. See our Rowan’s Law information page for full details. Team managers will be provided with further instructions for collecting the signed acknowledgement forms.

Ringette For All Program

Thanks to generous funding from Sport Information Resource Centre, City of Ottawa Ringette (CORA) is pleased to be offering a Ringette for All season from Sept. 16th to Mid March for all associations within our region. Ice has been secured at Jim Durrell Recreation Centre on Sundays at 5:30pm.

Ringette for All is an adapted ringette program for children with special abilities. Regardless of their needs, we want all children to have the opportunity to experience the awesome game of ringette.

All RFA kids that participated last season are returning and we would love to see the program grow. If you know of any families or children with special needs who may be interested, please direct them to www.ottawaringette.on.ca/rfa or contact Kim Gurtler at gurtler@rogers.com.
This type of program requires a significant number of volunteers. Ice time will be Sundays at 5:30 at Walkley Arena. If you are a U16 or U19 NRL player or parent willing to help out in any capacity, please contact Kim Gurtler at gurtler@rogers.com.
