COMPLAINTS + SANCTIONS
Anyone who witnesses a violation of a League policy or code of conduct at a League function should report the incident to an available Kickball Lead. If Lead is not available, the incident should be reported to one of the SSA Board Members and/or the Commissioner. Board Members will convey complaints to the Kickball Committee.
Following an allegation of misconduct of a member, the Kickball Committee will be consulted, and the Director, in consultation with the Kickball Committee will determine if the allegation is within the jurisdiction of the League. If so, an Advisory Committee will be formed, and will conduct the necessary investigations and carry out any required actions to resolve the complaint.
If warranted, the Kickball Director, in correlation with the Athletic Director and Commissioner, will carry out any sanctions determined to be appropriate by the Advisory Committee. Sanctions may include verbal warnings, written warnings, suspensions and, if the violation is repetitive or particularly egregious, expulsion from the League, including but not limited to sport, social, and philanthropic events.
If expelled, a player will not be refunded any registration fees. If a member is expelled from the League, they will remain ineligible to become a member again for at least one full season at which time the Advisory Committee may reassess the individual’s suitability for membership.
