Adopted Feb. 2, 2006
1. POLICY OF SSC – It is the policy of SSC to guarantee due process to all individuals involved in any process before the Grievance Committee and appeals to the Board of Directors from Grievance Committee processes. Individuals involved in any such process are entitled to receive copies of any materials relevant to the case in question, to be afforded due process, and to have the matter adjudicated within reasonable time frames, usually within 30 days.
2. PURPOSE OF THE GRIEVANCE COMMITTEE – The Grievance Committee is established to make findings of fact and determine sanctions upon members of SSC and their associates in cases involving problems or grievances arising during the course of the season but not arising out of allegations of misconduct by or against game officials. SSC is a recreational soccer league existing to encourage youth and adults love of the game and, as such, it will not hear any grievances arising out of the application of the laws of the game, or SSC modifications thereto, by game officials.
3. APPOINTMENT OF MEMBERS – The Grievance Committee shall consist of the Coaches Coordinator, Parent Representative, and 1 board member, depending upon the nature of the grievance, who shall be its Chair. Whenever a case is presented to the Grievance Committee, a Grievance Committee for that case shall be constituted. Occasionally, members of the Grievance Committee, and the Board of Directors acting on appeal, must excuse themselves from participating in a case because of their relationship to a particular person that is a party to the case before the Grievance Committee or the Board of Directors.
4. ADJUDICATION PROCEEDINGS – Filing Requirements – Before the Grievance Committee accepts a complaint the following requirements must all be met.
5. PROCEDURES – RULES OF CONDUCT – The Grievance Committee and Board of Directors endeavor to maintain a dispassionate presentation of facts and arguments. To that end, the Grievance Committee and Board of Directors enforce the following rules.
FACT FINDING PROCESS – In considering cases, the Grievance Committee is mindful of the following four considerations, although the rules of procedure still apply.
7. AGENDA FOR THE CONDUCT OF HEARINGS
Note: All proceedings are confidential and should not be discussed or disclosed outside of these proceedings.
The Springfield Soccer Club owes a debt of gratitude to an early promoter of soccer in Springfield Township, Elwood J. Hill.
As a result, an award is given in his name to one player on each team during the fall travel season who best exemplifies the following traits:
The Springfield Soccer Club provides an annual scholarship in the amount of $500 each to a male and female alumnus of the SSC upon their graduation from high school. The scholarship will be awarded to those pursuing a post secondary school education.
The award of the scholarship is contingent upon submission of an essay to the Springfield Soccer Club Board. The essay should indicate what they intend to do with their education. The essay should also indicate how playing soccer has impacted their life and how they intend to use what they have learned from this experience in the future. To be considered, essays must be submitted by April 15th each year to the club president.
