Coaches Corner

Little League baseball is often cited as one of the highlights of growing up. That’s why so many former Little Leaguers return to High Park to “give back” by coaching the next generation of Toronto baseball players. Parent volunteers are also a critical part of the success of our Instructional and T-Ball programs. If you’re interested in coaching, please check the “Volunteer” box when registering your child, or reach out to us at info@highparkbaseball.com for more information.

Rowan’s Law was named for Rowan Stringer, a high school rugby player from Ottawa, who died in the spring of 2013 from a condition known as second impact syndrome (swelling of the brain caused by a subsequent injury that occurred before a previous injury healed). Rowan is believed to have experienced three concussions over six days while playing rugby. She had a concussion but didn’t know her brain needed time to heal. Neither did her parents, teachers or coaches.

Rowan’s Law and Rowan’s Law Day were established to honour her memory and bring awareness to concussions and concussion safety.

Under Ontario’s new Rowan’s Law, all sport organizations must confirm that you have reviewed the age appropriate Concussion Awareness Resources in the links below before you can register/participate in sport.
