ROWAN’S LAW – Compliance Requirements for Ontario Skating Clubs and Schools
Each and every family is required to sign the Rowan’s Law Acknowledgement Form. This is to be done before their skaters begins the first session. There will be no exceptions. The skating club must be prepared to present proof of this form, if audited by the provincial government.
