PROGRESSIVE DISCIPLINE POLICY
PURPOSE OF THIS DOCUMENT:
When a Player does not meet ACS league sportsmanship standards, appropriate disciplinary action should be taken.
If training and counseling does not resolve a discipline problem, appropriate progressive disciplinary steps should be taken. Progressive discipline should be used to deal with chronic minor violations as well as any serious violations. An example of a serious discipline problem is continuous unsportsmanlike conduct.
There are various discipline options. Depending on the circumstances and severity of the actions requiring discipline, any single action or combination of actions may be appropriate.
- Training and Counseling
- Verbal Warning
- 1 or 2 week suspension
- 1 or 2 month suspension
- Rest of season suspension
- Permanent suspension
This policy is a guideline, but not an exact order, as the league director may move a player into suspension immediately based on determining the level of un-sportsmanship.
Note: if a player is out of control, the league manager will get the Bar manager to escort the player out of the pool area. This will resort in the player having to forfeit their match as it stands.
LAST CHANCE NOTICE:
If appropriate prior to permanent suspension from the league, a Last Chance form may be used as a final written warning.
REINSTATEMENT FROM A SUSPENSION:
A player must meet with the league director and demonstrate how they have learned and are ready to be included in group play again.
The league director has full authority to approve or decline reinstatement.
No reinstatement meeting. This is permanent.
