DISPUTE RESOLUTION / DUE PROCESS PROCEDURES

These Rules & Regulations detail the various disciplinary actions that may be taken when team members violate rules during inter region play from 10U-19U.  Discipline conveyed during Area 1-R play is determined by the Area Director.  It is not the Area’s intent to be unduly harsh, unfair, arbitrary or capricious.  It is the Area’s intent to send a message to all of the participants, that it will not tolerate violent conduct, serious foul play, or offensive, insulting and abusive language/obscene gestures.  It is the responsibility of each participant in Area 1-R to familiarize themselves with the Rules & Regulations and corresponding penalties.   A procedure exists to insure that disciplinary decisions of the Area remain fair and that persons involved with the procedure are disinterested parties as outlined in the discipline review process.

Area Due Process Procedure

Discipline actions tendered by the Area to participants will be by phone call and/or email to the respective Coach and Regional Commissioner.  Written communication of disciplinary actions regarding eligibility to participate in the Section 1 Playoffs to a participant or coach will be as warranted and at the discretion of the Area Director.  Written communications will specify the action being taken and the reasons therefore. The written notice will also notify the participant that he or she, upon written request for a due process hearing within a certain time frame, will be given a reasonable opportunity to explain why such action should not be taken.  At the request of the disciplined party the Area Director will appoint a panel of no less than three (3) disinterested persons to conduct a hearing at a neutral site.  The hearing will be informal and interested parties will be heard.

At the conclusion of the hearing the volunteer panel will meet and confer to make its determination and present its findings in writing to the Area Director.  The Area Director will make a final decision and disseminate the results in writing to all interested parties.  At the option of the disciplined party, the decision by the Area Director in this matter may be further appealed to the Section Director. The discipline administered may be harsher than originally given.

These procedures have been initiated to make sure that the AYSO philosophy is followed in our actions regarding our membership.  Our intent is to satisfy the doctrine of fairness that underlies the basic philosophy of AYSO.

Area R Guidelines, Spring Select Guidelines and National Rules & Regulations and Policies will be in effect during this season and may override or supersede any Rule or Regulation addresses herein.
