Rowan’s Law – Concussion Protocols at Keewatin Curling Club

At the Keewatin Curling Club we prioritize the well-being and safety of our members and patrons. A risk of playing a sport on ice include falls and the potential to result in a concussion. A concussion is a brain injury that may be caused by a blow to the head, face, or neck. A concussion is a serious injury and can lead to long-lasting symptoms or effects.

Signs and symptoms of a concussion include headaches, nausea, dizziness, light sensitivity, ringing in the ears, drowsiness, memory loss, and depression.

If you have suspect you or someone you know have sustained a concussion please consult with a physician or nurse practitioner.
