For Coaches/ Team Managers: |
1. Talk: If you are having a problem with parents, players or other coaches, first try to speak with the parents, players or coach about it.
Exception: If you are having problems with a referee, please do NOT speak with the referee – instead, please submit your concern to the MRYSL ref assignor or your program coordinator.
2. Supervisor: If, after talking with the person with whom you are having difficulties, your complaint is not resolved, then speak to the person in charge of the program. You can also fill out the MRYSL Incident Report Form, and submit it to the person in charge of the program.
For MRU, contact
Anthony Kahn, at firstname.lastname@example.org .
For Rec, contact:
Paul Swenson (Director of Coaching),
Kristin Reiner (Program Coordinator), at email@example.com.
Tom Wolf (program chair) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can also submt your complaint to the MRYSL president, Tim Canning, at email@example.com.
3. Formal Complaint: If you wish to pursue a formal complaint, MRYSL has a “Protest Appeals and Discipline” procedure. This process can be used to address any violation of MRYSL or CYSA rules or policies, and can be invoked by coaches and team managers, too.
To invoke this procedure, all you need to do is mail your written complaint to the MRYSL office, providing as much detail about your complaint as possible. In about 30 days, a hearing will be held, during which you can present your complaint and witnesses; then the person you are complaining about will have an equal amount of time to present his or her side of the event. Three panelists will then decide whether any rules or policies were violated, and if so, what the proper amount of discipline is, if any.
More information on the PAD process is available at CYSA North’s website, http://www.calnorth.org
4. Policies: If you have a complaint or concern about MRYSL rules or policies, please contact the MRYSL Board of Directors. You can also attend one of our monthly board meetings – we always set aside some time at the beginning of the meeting to hear from MRYSL members or the public. We always welcome input from coaches and team managers, as well as anyone else in our community.
