Any parent, player or assistant coach should, whenever possible, discuss the matter in question with the coach directly, in the event that a complaint involves the team coach. No such discussions may take place during or just prior to or after a game or practice, unless the coach has previously agreed to schedule a discussion at such times. No children may be present during the discussion. For issues arising from games or practices, a 24-hour wait before discussion is recommended. In cases involving a problem with the coach, a team or players and when discussion with the coach does not resolve the issue, the complainant should contact the Director of Coaching, who will consider and seek to resolve the issue. In the event that the Director of Coaching is not able to resolve the complaint or chooses to refer the case to the Grievance Committee, a formal grievance with the SCCYSC Board may be filed. In the event that a complaint involves the Director of Coaching, the complainant may file a formal grievance after notice to the Director of Coaching.
