VIOLATIONS AND APPEAL PROCEDURES In the event an athlete is found in violation of the above standards, a coach will initiate a written conduct report. A copy will be forwarded to the Head Coach. The Head Coach will inform the Parent(s)/Guardian(s) of the violation. An athlete may appeal in writing a disciplinary decision to the Head Coach (if the decision was made by an assistant coach) or to the Board (if the disciplinary decision was made by the Head Coach). The initial appeal must be submitted within ten days of the disciplinary action, or it will be deemed waived. If the Head Coach upholds the disciplinary decision, the athlete may subsequently appeal said decision in writing to the Board. Such appeal must be submitted within ten days of the athlete’s being notified of the Head Coach’s decision. The Board has the final say as to whether to uphold the disciplinary decision.
