Grievance Resolution and Discipline


It is recognized that there might be instances where a member is not satisfied with a particular situation, or a problem may arise in relation to some aspect of the hockey season, the particular team, or other issues.  It is recommended that the member start with the ‘24 hour rule’.  That is, wait for a period of 24 hours to further consider both sides of the situation, prior to initiating any action.  If after that time period, the member wishes to move forward, this procedure must be followed.  It is strongly suggested that each concern be documented in writing at each stage of the review. 

  1. Discuss the issue with the head coach.  The head coach will talk to the parties involved, gather the necessary and pertinent information, and make a decision.
  2. If the member is not satisfied, or if the concern involves the head coach, the member should bring their concern to the attention of the Assistant Director, Compuware Youth Hockey.  The Assistant Director, Compuware Youth Hockey will talk to the parties involved, gather the necessary and pertinent information, and make a decision.  This decision is binding and final.
