The Wyndham Netball Association has three different processes for dealing with matters of non-compliance with our Rules, Regulations and Codes of Conduct.
1. Our Constitution (clauses 21 - 26) deals with situations where the Association may take disciplinary action against a member of the Association, where the member:i. Fails to comply with Rules (constitution) of the Associationii. Refuses to support the purposes of the Associationiii. Engages in conduct prejudicial to the Association.
2. Our By-Laws and the Schedule of Penalties set out the requirements of our competitions and the penalties that are applied to Teams for breaches of our competition rules. Penalties are administered by our Competition Manager and a process is provided for appealing against these penalties.
3. Wyndham Netball has also adopted the Netball Victoria's Competition Regulations for matters where individuals (players, coaches, officials, spectators etc.) may have committed an offence.
The Competition Regulations set out:i. What is an Offenceii. Minimum penalties for committing an Offenceiii. The process for lodging a complaint with the Association
Individuals should make themselves familiar with the Netball Victoria Competition Regulations if they believe a situation exists where a Complaint is warranted.
A Complaint Form must be submitted to the Wyndham Netball Association within 72 hours of the incident.
Once a Complaint Form has been lodged, the Wyndham Netball Association’s Hearings Officer will determine the appropriate process to follow using the relevant policy (including but not limited to the Wyndham Netball Association’s By-Laws, Netball Victoria’s Competition Regulations or Netball Australia’s Member ProtectionPolicy).
Parties involved will be notified in due course if any further action or information is required or if any decisions or penalties are to be imposed.
